All I am getting on 88.5FM is static - earlier I was getting static and a CBC radio station.
I got word that FM stations in the Vancouver region will be down for most of the day today, due to maintenance. No ETA of when it would be back online but should not be too long. Do apologize for the inconveniences!
Hello jaynne. That is a bit of an issue. You mentioned you were hearing static along with the station previously? This could be that the signal was starting to fail. Try reseating the cable ends, between the cable outlet and your tuner. See if you can get the station back. Also check to see if there is a splitter on the cable. If there is, depending on what else is connected to this, you can try bypassing it and test a direct connection to the cable outlet.
Are you a Shaw Tech?
There is nothing unusual that has happened to my tuner lately so I am not jumping through all these hoops. I am getting CBC Cable One on 88.1 just fine. CBC Cable Two is heavy static over the station and KPLU are just static.
Hey jaynne. I am tech at Shaw. Often connections can loosen over time, particularly with temperature changes as the metal expands and contracts. Static is a common issue with a poor signal, which is why reseating the connections can help with this. Also splitters can fail over time just as any electronic device, so by bypassing it, this would give is a better idea if that is the cause or of it's actually the signal into the residence.
But how does that explain getting CBC - Radio One perfectly?
KPLU was working fine for a short while. Now - nothing but static again. Have checked cables and splitter. Now it is back to you. Have you checked everything at your end?
CBC 88.1 also static.
Okay - that explains a lot. Too bad Don wasn't in the loop.
Still don't understand why CBC Cable Radio One is not having a problem.
