Re: Channel-Sharing, Canadian Style

If I remember correctly, Global's signal *is* nulled towards Detroit, and yes, it is the most difficult Canadian station for me to pick up, because of that. Don't' fret if you don't receive it, because I often have difficulty tuning in, too!

Re: WFHD-LP

Ringtail....are u able to get WHNE rf3 with your antenna?? Sadly no, and not for lack of trying! it's rated for channels 7-69, though I hope to one day get a VHF-Low/FM/VHF-Hi/UHF combo antenna so i can pick them up once again. As for WDMY-LD in Toledo.. I never picked them up. The farthest LPTV si...

Re: WFHD-LP

they could try asking for VHF 6 or VHF 2... VHF 4 is reserved for wireless microphones, 3 is used by WHNE-LD and 5 is used by WLMB-TV in Toledo... but those are the only realistic options left for them.

Re: WFHD-LP

there's no way the FCC would allow them to use UHF 18... it's too shortspaced to WDTJ-LD in Toledo (also on 18). 30 *might* be doable if they're directional away from Leamington to protect CFTV-DT...

I dunno.... ratings for both stations would probably increase if that were to happen :lol

Re: Channel-Sharing, Canadian Style

no, we get Global programming via CIII-DT-22 (UHF 33, PSIP 22.1) from between Leamington and Wheatley. it's mostly aimed due west to Kingsville, and northeast to Chatham, but we get a usable signal too.

Channel-Sharing, Canadian Style

So, Corus Entertainment has made four applications on merging repeaters of Global stations onto the main transmitters of their sister stations, in a bid to both cut down on spectrum used for broadcasting, and for electricity from having to maintain multiple transmitters. instead of broadcasting mult...

Re: RePack Phase 9 Started

It hasn't moved yet, but once they do, I'll actually have a shot at recieving it, since they're not at a tower in Cottam, which is about half-way between Essex and Leamington. The fact that they'll be sliding down in frequency (to UHF 30) is definitely gonna help.

Re: Media doing social separation

Last week, the Inside Edition crew were reporting from their homes because the CBS Building in New York City was closed for decontamination after a staff member tested positive for coronavirus... I thought it was an interesting way of doing things for a news show. Plus, Deborah Norville has a nice k...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

I'm pretty sure WUDT and WADL are moving in the next repack phase... that should be by May 1st. I agree, though, i'd love to see WHNE apply for VHF 8 instead if WUDT wants to stay where they are (even if it ends up costing me WNWO from Toledo... a worthy sacrifice! :P)

Re: NBC IN ALPENA AREA

Sadly, Alpena and the Lake Huron shoreline of NE Michigan are so far out from the nearest NBC affiliate towers, that your best bet might just be a satellite dish if you can't get anything in from Cadillac or Sault Sainte Marie... On closer inspection of RabbitEars.info and the FCC databases.... you ...
