Unless I am reading the TVFOOL charts incorrectly, which is very likely, I was getting 5., 9., and 12. channels. I didn't get any 11. There are several other channels that look like they might work at 260 degrees. Reality is, I am fine with ABC, FOX, CBS, and NBC (which is the only one that didn't work).
You should be getting NBC from K21DG
rabbitears.info says it is on the air:
You could call the KARE station engineer and see if they are having transmitter problems with their K21DG translator.
Main desk: (763) 546-1111
K21DG is about 25 dB weaker than KEYC and about 10 dB weaker than K43JE. I wonder how strong those translators that are 32 miles away really are in your attic. Do you have a TV with a signal strength indicator to make a comparison between KEYC and K21DG?
Ok, so I got the 2nd antenna set up.
Which antenna did you get?
Exactly what device are you using to combine the two antennas?
How long are the coax runs from the antenna to the combiner, and from the combiner to the test TV?
Are you willing to make some tests to see how weak the UHF translators are?
If their signal strength is marginal, you might need some amplification for just the UHF channels.
