I'm in the Rancho Cucamonga/N. Fontana area and installed a RCA ANT751 on my second story roof with a CM-7777 pre-amp. I get tons of stations, but KDOC 56 partially comes in when there's rain clouds or just a cloudy day. Not sure why that is...?
I initially had trouble picking up KABC and after adjusting the antenna and watching the signal strength on my DVR, I'm getting almost every station from LA (those that transmit enough power) and Riverside now.
I just ordered an Eagle Aspen DTV2BUHF from WM and will test it with the RCA pre-amp, because it appears KDOC is UHF, though I already get many UHF stations so maybe this one will work for the others I don't receive.
Don't get me wrong, I was ecstatic when I scanned my TV and picked up 80+ channels and was tempted to call TW to laugh in their face.
This weekend I finished connecting 5 rooms using a CM dist. amp with great success.
My question is, if weather affects UHF stations so much, do the signals bounce off of rain clouds or something so that I am able get a stronger signal???
Thanks for any input.
