It looks like the newest set of Canadian database entries have still not generated any coverage maps on the site …

CFCF-DT(1) map discrepancy?

Please see the screen shot attached.
At the marker location, the NM for CFCF-DT(1) is almost zero, yet the map area is shown as green.
Is this OK?

Ottawa, ON corrections

CITY-PT-3 and CJMT-TV-2 appear to be theoretical entries in the Industry Canada database, not actual parameters of proposed stations. They should probably be removed …
