Who is/What is MAX HD?
Antennaweb and TitanTV both think I should recieve WRTV's (25-1) digital signal.... and TTV4 (53-1, 53-2) as well . While analog 4 is fine I was under the impression that the ch 53 signal was too weak to get here. That said, it does register higher than RTV 25-1 on the meter and is SOMETIMES viewable late at night (and on those times 53-1, 53-2 have been viewable, oddly video has been rock solid with only a 37 on the meter which I don't understand)
Altho I do take both sites with a grain of salt. Antennaweb lists Terre Haute analog reception which is marginal for me yet doesn't list some Louisville stations (analog) that are fine.
Louisville ABC is not broadcasting digital @ full power. When they did ramp it up for a test and then a few days later for the Superbowl it was receivable to me BUT not perfect.... My DST3000 had a firmware upgrade since then so maybe it would be better locking in now. Dunno...
OTOH, The Lousiville CBS and NBC tests have pegged my meter and been perfect. Their tower is in Indiana so are closer to me than the city of Louisville actually is.
So it looks like in this part of Indiana... at my location.... there will be some digital holes in reception. I am crossing my fingers that with all the full power testing WAVE and WLKY are doing that they will broadcast at full power here shortly when they finally go 'live'.
I don't hold much hope for FOX reception. Unlike the other analog's from Indy (6,8,13) FOX 59 has not been viewable at all. FOX out of Louisville are doing the absolute minimum possible both in power and terms of broadcast I gather from this forum. I can't get them..sometimes the meter will blip for them but that is it.
...Still curious what the CM4228 would accomplish at the top of the tower.... or another 10' of height on the tower...
