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...
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.
