I've been following a this thread for a while as I tried a while back to pick up the seattle digitals with very mixed/poor results. I'm located about 3 miles east of Everett Mall which puts a large hill between me and the towers. However trying an antenna craft mxu59 (the best of the bunch) a Channel master 4248, and 4228(the worst here), a dat-75 and a radio shack cheapie uhf only model, I was always able to get Komo with only occasional breakups, and Kiro with several breakups.. (every 30 seconds or so) and never gotten King at all. I could however pick up Kong digital just fine and UPN fine, and of course that shopping channel from Bellevue comes in perfect! I could not get kcts or Fox at all, not even a peep.
I have tried going up as high as 40' (boy was that scary!) and it seems to make little difference over 25'. I guess I'm wondering if you guys think there is any hope for my reception. Of course I have LOS issues, but I also believe I'm fighting some multi path.
Any Ideas why I can get (sorta) Komo and Kiro, but no King? And someone mentioned that Komo was outputting the least power of the 3?
I wouldn't be going through all this If Comcast would come through but I'm tired of waiting, and am going to try local reception again.
I do have a 2nd dat75 antenna that I could try horizontal stacking with, but I would need a lot better way to get it up high (because of the weight) than my current setup? Any tower suggestions??
I know I'm fighting an uphill battle here (no pun intended) but am looking for any suggestions.
