    Default Cuba low VHF assignments - Es targets

    ***Is it possible to make this a sticky thread for TV dxers?

    Linking to the Cuba DTV transition thread...
    http://forums.wtfda.org/showthread.p...ion-transition

    Since Cuba analogue television isn't going away until 2021, there are going to be plenty more opportunities to receive low VHF television via Es from Cuba. This especially applies to East coast dxers in the US & Canada. With that in mind, I went through the Lacetel maps for the DTV transition that were recently posted on the internet and extracted the information for this thread. I am also uploading all of the province maps for Cuba with this thread so the reader/viewer can see ALL of the television channel assignments for Cuba. These maps include ALL VHF/UHF analogue assignments plus the future TDT (DTMB standard) assignments. The *problem* with the channel listings on the maps is they don't indicate offsets, call letters, or power for the assignments. However, it is better than what we had before.

    I am very glad to see this mirrored. When I went to the page this was the first thing I saw. What an improvement over previous lists!

    A few additional notes:

    -The by-province maps also indicate the level of service of each telecentro: primary (orange), secondary (purple) or community (green). Many community transmitters were established to carry Multivisión, which is not broadcast from some of the high-power transmitters.

    -Two telecentros maintain their own stations: Canal Habana and Solvisión, serving Guantánamo.

    -Fun fact: The name of the telecentro en Santiago de Cuba, Boniato, literally means "sweet potato". What a memorable name!

    -Needed correction: the 4 and 6 from Holguín province are at Miraflores, southwest of Moa, which is 80 miles from Holguín itself.
    Este programa es público, ajeno a cualquier partido político. Queda prohibido el uso para fines distintos a los establecidos en el programa.

    This is great Jim! As I mentioned to you, the last time I checked that site they only had digital info, not analogue. The network info is especially useful. All missing networks on my Cuban TV list have been updated.

    Channels 3 & 5 La Palma have swapped networks - which solves our mystery Rebelde 3 which many of us have been getting over the last few years. Great hunting Jim!
