CHCH Hamilton

I live near Downtown TO and since they switched from 18 to 11 I can no longer receive their signal.

Is there anyone outside of the Hamilton area experiencing the same problem?

I believe their 6 kW transmitter is not sufficient to cover their old transmission area.

I live in Niagara. In analog, it was my strongest channel. Now I do not get it. I finally get CBC but no CHCH, Global, or CTV. It appears I will have to invest in some outdoor hardware.

I initially had a problem getting the digital signal from the old analogue (VHF) frequency for two reasons.
1. The signal strength is much lower that the UHF transmission was.
2. I needed to realign the VHF component of my antenna to get a better compromise between channel 9 and 11.

I am located in Brampton Hwy 410 & Sandalwood using a TERK HDTVa indoor antenna. Most of the time I am now getting 60+ % quality reception on CHCH.

From here to the transmission tower at Stoney Creek is 37 miles.

CHCH in Cleveland

I just installed an outdoor rooftop antenna and am delighted to receive CHCH in Mentor, OH. It must be from a re-transmission tower and not their big 381 ft tower...that's pretty far away.
Anyhow...I just gave cable bills the boot and am glad I can get my news fix on this station, even if it's Canadian, lol
I get 8 bars during the day, but it can drop to 5 during the night. 9 seems to be the highest possible on my tv.

CHCH Reception north of Toronto

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...1dda07b93140c7

I am getting CHCH digital on ch 11 (11.1) using a rooftop combo VHF/UHF Digiwave ANT-2280 antenna, 40ft high aimed directly at the CHCH transmitter tower 51.3 mi away.
The signal is so weak at 6KW but I am getting 1-2 bars of signal.
The pending applications show the CHCH has applied to move to Ch 15(15.1) at a power of 132KW. This should solve the difficuties for all of us.
