Voom added channel scanning feature to their receivers. Now I get 12 like gangbusters. Lookout Olympics.
WAIQ use to be very borderline. If anything, it would lock on just enough to impress you with the picture and then breakup or freeze.
This morning, I added another 5' section to the antenna mast. Using a channelmaster 4228 with an amplifier. This was scary as I'm already pretty high and trying to manouver an antenna on a 10' mast was a little crazy. Anyway, now my signal number for WAIQ is something like 93. Picture doesn't freeze, but I am getting frequent pixelzation on part of the screen and audio dropouts. Viewing the antenna strength meter, the signal is well into the green area and only fluctuates slightly(well within the green). Although its improved substantially, is this as good as its likely to be until they get their big antenna back and are up to full power?
As a side note. This past week I was emailing someone over at WAIQ and learned that the big antenna that got toasted last March, probably won't be back until September or October.
