    CRTC allows CBC to continue broadcasting analog television signals in 22 markets

    CRTC allows CBC to continue broadcasting analog television signals in 22 markets until August 2012

    OTTAWA-GATINEAU, August 16, 2011 — Today, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) gave the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) permission to continue broadcasting analog over-the-air television signals in 22 markets until August 31, 2012. This decision gives the CBC an additional year to find solutions for viewers who may lose access to its over-the-air signals after the transition to digital television.

    Full article: http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/com100/2011/r110816.htm

    Approved in the list was CBVE-TV Quebec City, currently on channel 5, will move to channel 11, which is currently used by CBVT (SRC). I think it's stupid but makes economical sense.

    If I remember correctly from the CKMI deal back in 1997, CFCM agreed to continue operating CBVE-TV as a retransmitter of CBMT-TV Montreal from their transmission tower while moving CKMI-TV to the Mont Bélair, which is where SRC already is located. So, on August 31, the channel 5 transmitter goes offline, the analog SRC will instead broadcast the CBC feed until next year.

    About Trois-Rivières, it's not gonna be welcomed by Montrealers! The current CBMT-1 Trois-Rivières currently on UHF 28 will move to VHF 13 with 47,000 watts. Montrealers currently have a hell of difficulty to catch WNVY-TV Burlington/Plattsburgh from Mount Mansfield on VHF 13 due to the strong analog signal from CFCF on VHF 12. Grrrrr.

    CBJET Saguenay will remain on UHF 58 but with an Average ERP of 496 watts (Maximum ERP: 595 watts). It's ridiculously low since the 52-69 range must be vacated, but since Saguenay is north and have less TV stations, why not move it to channel 51 or 50 or 49 and keep a good acceptable power?
