I'm not sure how many Anchorage people are checking on this thread, but I thought that I would check and see if anybody knows what the current status of KAKM is.
I heard that KAKM HD was up and transmitting, but I do not find it.
I put up a rooftop antenna last week and get KTUU in HD, KTVA in SD and KYES HD (Wealth TV on 22.1) and SD on 22.4.
Also, is KTUU HD transmitting on full power yet?
I have a Dish 921 that does not lock on the signal from KTUU (both HD and SD) or KTVA very well. It has pixelization break up every 1 to 2 minutes. KYES is stable. My Hitatchi TV locks onto all channels without an problems at all. I am hoping that KTUU is still low power and once it goes full power, the problem will go away.
This is with a CS1100 that I got at Frigid North and is mounted 30' above ground. Unfortunately I am just to the south of Klatt Elementary school and have a sloped metal roof between me and KTUU and KTVA transmitters. I got the deep fringe 1100 so as to avoid problems with the roof. The analog signals are not very good, with herring bone patterns in most channels.
There is an FM transmitter a mile away, so I'm not sure if I am seeing interference from it, the roof or just a low power signal.
