So... change of subject: is anyone else still having trouble picking up WNYE (25)? Let me clarify: is anyone else WHO ISN'T WITHIN TEN MILES of the transmitter having trouble? I would have thought that they'd be finished with their upgrades by now.

Still having WNYE issues here. No 3 yet either.

because of vacations, Burning Man and "i got better things to do" are the reasons why KVNV is not up yet

Bounce's affiliation agreement with Fox is ending, and it's moving to 41-3.

I've got it but haven't yet tested it out. I don't have a roof mount for it yet, nor a mast pipe.

WCBS as well....

This afternoon, 2.1 has been very weak. All other stations (save the missing 25) are normal in strength. I have a line of sight to NYC from my location....normally very stable.

2.1 is clearly running low power.

In Vienna we sit, in late night cafe. Straight Connection, on T.E.E.

Cool Resource !

I have a far fringe antenna (old RS, second from top, looks like a channelmaster knock off) and am 40 miles upriver from NYC. I have a very stable signal between 62-97 % for the NYC broadcasters. I feed four TV sets OTA and two stereo tuners, without an amp.

There is a minor seasonal fluctuation for the trees, but that's it. CBS is normally 85 %, but had dropped in my location to >50 % and was losing lock (admittedly with a first gen Sony HDD 250 tuner). The pixellation was kinda trippy, though....

I'll have to bookmark that.

Back in the day, DX from Philly was common.....at least I still get all the NYC channels, it allowed me to cut a cord.
