Ottawa/Gatineau digital transmitters
I've been monitoring the 1st Sept. transition for all 14 local transmitters (there were 15 until Sun TV went off the air here last days of August).
All but one, French language station Canal V, are now transmitting digital only. Those who had not gone digital by midnight on 31 Aug. turned to snow in the first minutes of Sept. I notice that the CHCH relay transmitter here (channel 11) is only in 480i, but it's still digital. The 12 others are beaming a 1080i signal. Can anyone tell me why the black sheep (Canal V) is not conforming to CRTC regs?

CBET in Windsor

I haven't been able to pick up CBET Windsor since the transition. I've been rescanning twice a day. The channel display reads 9-1 but I see only a snowy screen in b/w. It behaves as though it's not broadcasting. I'm near Ann Arbor, MI on high ground. When the conditions are favorable I receive Global ch 22-1 and occasionally some Cleveland area stations. Regularly received stations are most of Detroit, most of Toledo, CBS Lansing, PBS Flint and TVO Windsor. Has anybody got an idea why I'm not receiving CBET? Any info/tips will be greatly appreciated. I'm very grateful to be receiving TVO!

CBET Windsor 9.1
NOW I'm receiving CBET 9.1 from Windsor. I don't know what I did or why it took so long, and it was before anybody gave any suggestions. I hope those in its viewing range are receiving it as well as I am. Take care.

CBC has turned off its analog signals in Toronto. CBLFT is now broadcasting on 25.1 and CBLT remains on 20.1 virtual channel 5.
