Well, after being told I should have very good reception, I return from New Jersey. Time for a reception report from Fair Lawn on my Zenith HDV420 w/ a Zenith Silver Sensor and a CM7777. Remember that Normal (abbreviated NRML) is required for a picture/sound, and that is between 33%-66% signal. Good is above that and bad is below it.
56 CBS WCBS-DT GOOD (few breakups)
28 NBC WNBC-DT NRML (but only for a few minutes)
44 FOX WNYW-DT GOOD (few breakups)
45 ABC WABC-DT GOOD (few breakups)
12 TWB WPIX-DT BAD- (Got it up to about 10%, but jumped to 30% every so often... probably multipath)
61 PBS WNET-DT NONE
30 PAX WPXN-DT NONE
40 UNI WXTV-DT NRML (but only for a few seconds)
51 PBS WNJN-DT BAD- (It would go up to about 10% and then jump to GOOD for a second... methinks it was multipath)
27 TBN WTBY-DT NONE
48 INF WRNN-DT BAD- (Got to about 15%)
29 REL WFME-DT BAD- (Barely got above zero)
53 TFT WFUT-DT BAD- (Got to about 30%)
At my cousins house they actually HAVE an HDTV, and the only channel I could get at all was WCBS-DT and it was breaking up horribly. Plus their Sony HDTV wouldn't allow a manual focus so it was way the heck off.
I also used my digital tuner on the road and took screenshots, but that's not for here, although I almost locked WNJT-DT on I-78.
Comments are my own and not that of the FCC (my employer) or anyone else.
