In the photos, you can see I cantilevered the VHF rabbit ears - still flat, about 14" out over edge of building.
I also replaced the metal living-room lamp post holding the C-2 with a wooden broom stick(the less metal the better, right?
) and stood off the 300ohm twinlead with both a stand off and the brick you see there as a counterweight.
channels in my original post stay above 90%
signal strength at all times(exc. when severe storms approach)!
No FREAKIN' comment!
And if anyone here says there's something wrong with my setup, they probably work for ABC. Because if something in that photo was preventing ABC from coming in, it would prevent ALL OF MY CHANNELS from coming in or weaken their indicated signal strength severely - I'd get NOTHING. Unless ABC is transmitting on a frequency/bandwidth not used on this planet.
It's thoroughly on ABC to fix this one! (And I hope someone over there is lurking)
