I decided to delve into it a bit. If I put WNYB on channel 9, it causes 3% interference to WHAM and 13% interference to CKVR in Canada. If I put it on channel 10, it causes 3% interference to WHEC and 30% interference to CFPL in Canada. Suffice it to say, neither is acceptable.

WBNF-CD is a Class A station, which until the Incentive Auction, was treated just like an LPTV by Canada and thus was not protected from full-power stations like CHCH. (Even though it would be protected from US full-power stations.) It receives 16% interference from CHCH.

Actually WVTT Olean, is on tower north of Machias and just south of Springville. In theory they should put great signal into Buffalo, they don't, but that is not because of their location, or assign power level. Not sure of WVTT strategy, they would be a perfect station to use for experimenting with the new 3.0 broadcast standard in the Buffalo area. Currently they are broadcasting This TV on an analog translator Ch. 20 in Olean and putting a solid OTA signal in Olean.
