Any chance you think it might reach Brighton with its normal strength and pattern? I have an indoor antenna downstairs I wanna give a try but I'm not sure how much luck I'm gonna have where I live.

Scratch that. Only got 4, 7, a spotty 20, 56 and 62. Not bad for the 1st floor in a house at 96 and 23. Was hoping for more Lansing/Flint stations. Gonna try it on the 2nd floor TV later.

They fell off my scan about 4 months ago with an inside antenna. Used to be decent. Not sure what happened.

Same here, used to be roaring in and then they fell off my DVR records a couple weeks ago. I thought I had antenna problems, so I investigated that and had just enough signal to pull them in last night for hockey. This morning, they were gone again.

Outside I went, fine tuned the antenna a bit more but it was choppy. Then, about an hour before sunset, the signal came up quite a bit but no where near what it used to be.

Re: CBET TV Channel 9--tower work

Post by statmanmi » Mon Dec 16, 2019 7:04 pm

Hi All,

Someone posting over in the Detroit thread of AVSForum provided a link this weekend to the CBC's article regarding their ongoing tower work that would be affecting FM and TV channel 9 signal strength while underway:

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/windsor/ ... -1.5364037

It's further speculated that maybe the work is continuing beyond the originally noted Dec. 7th date.

I'd say don't give up hope that CBC 9 won't ever be back. Although for Mega Hertz in Brighton it might always be a stretch.

Good luck! ~~ Statmanmi

Now I know why 89.9 was weaker than usual in my neck of the woods not long ago.


Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

I have a outdoor antenna pointed directly south in Shelby Twp and I am pulling a strong signal from CBC 9. It is the only Canadian station I can get anymore, I see signal from TVO on 19 but not strong enough to get a good picture.

Thanks for that. Would certainly explain the decent signal for Hockey Night in Canada...
