Thank you for the great resource and allowing me to be her.
I am just north of Kittanning. (16218 Zip code) I am at a pretty high elevation
I recently cut the cord with Direct and trying to figure out some idiosyncracies.


I have a directional antenna without a rotor. I turn the mast by hand if I have to.
Also have a Channel Master booster


As best I can tell, I'm pointing around 210-215 approximately.
I get a lot of stations but not WPXI or WTAE.
I realize that WTAE is a bit in a different direction but I get a lot of stations that have weaker signals from different directions at that setting.


I get some Youngstown, Steubenville and Johnstown stations and a couple I don't know where from recently.
Specifically, 60.1, 60.2 and 60.3.


When I do a channel scan, I got 30 stations last night but not all come in.
I just get a blue screen.
Mostly on the Ion stations (16.1-16.5) and a couple of the Youngstown stations.
Enjoying the experience because there's a lot of old programming.


I would like to get WPXI and WTAE.
Any suggestions woulf be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

I have a few coworkers from out your way that commute into downtown daily. I think they're all nuts - I'm 4 miles from my office and think it takes me too long

WTAE reception just seems to be terrible. Their main tower is down in the Mon Valley, and they have a repeater on WQED's tower at the top of Pitt's campus in Oakland. Can you get 4.3 at all?

My place literally just a mile down Center Ave has spotty reception.

Thanks, pittsoccer for the reply.


I, too, think your coworkers may be nuts to make that drive..



I can get nothing from any of the 4+ or 11+ stations.
If I do a channel scan, it skips right over those.
Other stations don't come in but show up as a selection with a blue screen.
16s, for example.


WPXI is a real puzzle to me.
It is in the same general direction that my antenna is pointing and has a strong signal


Another thing that happens is there are times I can hardly pick up anything.
I do a channel scan and it finds somewhere between 20-30.
Weather doesn't seem to be a factor
