I was told on their web page to contact their engineers, which I did but I haven't heard anything back.
First, I'd double check the cable(s) for tightness and damage.
Then I might try aiming the antenna towards Forsythe \ Tanyville to try to get their signal via KWBM (displays as 49.1 but is actually on RF 31.2).

I will have to check the cable but to me it seems unlikely as I have two antennas coupled together into this: http://www.tinlee.com/PDF/AC7-custom...kup%20Info.pdf

One of those antennas is directly solely to KRBK. The other one receives the others and I am getting them fine. Since i am getting them fine and it is being sent out the Tinlee combiner it seems odd to me that it would be a cable problem. I guess I could be wrong though.

I don't really want to go toward Forysth because I don't think they are broadcasting MeTV 49.2. I'm not sure it is a choice anyways as from the front of my house there are several trees in that direction which would likely make it hard to get the signal from that direction.

I have an antenna question for the forum
I live in West Plains and have what I believe to be an RCA ANT3036W all band antenna. All of my uhf channels work well with signal strength on my Dish 622 receiver (OTA tuner) between 70 and 85. However channel 10 on VHF has a signal strength of 60 and below with frequent drop outs.
I was thinking about adding a second vhf only antenna for channel 10 and was looking at the Antennacraft Y10-7-13 coupled to the existing antenna using the Pico Macom UVSJ UHF VHF Band Separator/Combiner. My cost would be around $60.00.
My questions are.

1. Would this improve my signal on channel 10 enough to avoid dropouts.
2. Would it degrade my signal on the uhf channels?
3. Would I need to remove the vhf section from the existing antenna?
4. How much spacing would be needed between the antennas?


Any thoughts on how this would work or better recommendations or where I might go to get input?


Thanks

I have a question for those in and around the Springfield, Mo area. Anyone notice anything strange with Fox KRBK's signal? A little over 24 hours ago, I completely lost the signal. I have it back but it is very weak. I checked the diagnostics of the signal on my Tivo Roamio and it shows I have a signal level of around 19-20 SNR. Normally, I am in the 25-26 SNR level. I have posted on their facebook page to see if they are having any issues that would cause this but no response yet. I have double checked my equipment that I have access to (combiner, amp, etc.) and everything appears to be working well. I feel like it has to be something on the station's end for the signal to completely drop off, then me to regain it but at quite a bit lower power than I am used to without me changing anything. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same thing or have any connections with station engineers as to what might be going on....

Anyone picking up Fox KRBK out of Springfield should do a channel scan as they have added a sub-channel 49.3. It appears to be this station:

I hesitate to even ask this but can anyone else confirm that Fox KRBK is having signal issues. It was confirmed on facebook about two weeks ago. Whoever maintains that is claiming it is at full power again but I am sitting at 16db SNR and am usually at 24-25 SNR. Even more strange is Mr. Falcetto has not responded to my email message asking about when they expect to resolve it.
