I thought that WWOR had a power output of around 300 kw. We have a summer residence in northwest NJ and pull in the major networks from NYC. I noticed a significant drop in the NM (db) for WWOR for that location from what we had seen for the last several years compared. I could attach the radar plots if that would be any help.

After a very extended outage, the Live Bandscan receiver at my grandmother's house is back in working order.

https://m.rabbitears.info/index.php?...10343612&tno=1

There were two different issues. First and most obviously, the network cable to the computer running the program had gotten unplugged. But second, the power supply for the HDHomeRun had burned out. It smelled burned, too. So I had a spare that I swapped in.

I'm fidgeting with the antenna placement again trying to get all of the stations to be relatively stable. So far, no luck; at least one is below threshold in any position I try. I'm leaving tomorrow morning, so whatever you see at about 9AM tomorrow is about what it should be going forward until my next visit. I need to find a better antenna than the rabbit ears attached to it now.

Looking at your tuner log, there is significant RF activity on RF channels 57 through 61 with (at approximately 10:25PM EDT. on 01/31/2017) an especially strong signal on channel 60. Through all the available data, can you please confirm which signals these are?

As it is in most of the US, 52/57 is T-Mobile, 53/54/55/56/58/59 is AT&T, 60/61/65/66 is Verizon.

Anyone have issues with WPIX. You can be watching it and then it just starts to break up bad. It already ruined a few of my programs which is why now I have to record it on my Dish Network feed. I original got the Tivo because of the loss of WPIX on Dish during the summer.

Also I notice when WPIX is a pixilated mess the Dish Network WPIX feed will break up a bit too. This station has to move to 1WTC soon.

The service is actually available in certain markets, just not all of the markets in which the channels are being transmitted.

No issues here. Have you checked both signal quality and strength?

Also you can go to Trips website and check his live band scanner results which will show if there are issues with any broadcasters.

It can confirm if your issue is local to you only or widespread.
