CKCO-TV-3 (CTV Kitchener's sarnia repeater): we're losing this one, and we now have a best-before date: May 2, 2020. I guess Bell Media figured it would be cheaper to shut this one down instead of converting it to digital operations... though I thought it was kinda nice to have one final analog signal in the area....
Bell would be the Canadian equivalent of a combination of Xfinity, DirecTV, AT&T, one of the Big Four, and Sinclair. If Bell had their way, they probably could shut down all of their transmitters outside of the big Canadian cities

that's handled by a broadcast regulator setting out a bandplan (bandwidth plan) that organizes all the radio frequencies within the country up to 300 GHz. Coordination with neighbours is done via agreements with their neighbours, and via the International Telecommunications Union, which has three regions (Region 1 is Europe, Middle East, Africa, Region 2 is the Americas, and Region 3 is Asia, Australia and everyone else).

i'll have to scan if CIII-DT-22 has moved from 22 yet... otherwise, let the severe co-channel interference commence!

Still haven't seen CICO-DT-32 (TVOntario) return... and CBET-DT's been down all day, too. is that from tower work?

So CW 50 switched over during the night, so I decided to do a scan this morning to bring them back to my living room TV. I picked up 11 WTOL and 13 WTVG from Toledo during the scan, but I have a feeling this was just do to doing the scan a sunrise and this is not going to be a normal thing. Other then those two I didn't really pick up anything else, nothing from Flint. I didn't pick up anything on 19, WUDL or TVO, and 40 wasn't showing up yet either.

As most Windsor OTA antennas are pointed at Detroit with no rotor, TVO has just lost a big chunk of a viewing audience.They reduced power and with WUDL still on rf19 cant break through.Where is the brains of engineers here in Kanuckistan???

On rf32 pointed at the D I could still pick TVO even though the tower is south toward lake erie.Alot of kids are missing their cartoons this morn.We will see what happens when WUDL moves.

Side note..........looks like WDWO rf22 is now in the diginet business too.As they added Spanish and infomercial channels along with religious.

I too have rescanned several times and have lost TVO.


My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

WDWO is on the air on UHF 22 now with 5 subchannels:

18.1 is Azteca
18.2 is Infomercials
18.3 is more infomercials
18.4 is blank (hopefully Decades soon)
18.5 is 3ABN

Is anyone getting anything on 19? WUDL or TVO
Right now I see signal from 19 but the quality is poor so the channels can lock.

I am also getting a weak signal from CIII-29 Global at 35, Where WUDL is moving in March.

I've been getting WUDL, it obliterates any trace of CICO. But when I have the antenna i certain positions that used to get me both back when CICO was on 32, I get neither, just a No Signal screen
