I am currently using a Winegard HD4053 for VHF and a Blake JBX21-WB for UHF, coupled by a CM Titan 7777 preamp on a 28' mast. All coax is RG6 quad-shield with snap-n-seal connectors.
WBRE-DT 11 = no lock, digital LED flashes on/off a few times (33 miles, 30KW)
WYOU-DT 13 = no lock, no flash (33 miles, 30KW)
WBNG-DT 7 = no lock, digital LED flashes on/off a few times (57 miles, 20KW)
Obviously I am having a big problem with the VHF stations. My thought is that with my current setup the VHF antenna has about 5db less gain than the UHF antenna, and the Titan provides 3db less gain on VHF than UHF. I need increase my VHF signal by at least 8db somehow.
