A quick check done on 10/18 in Roseville, .... I still see analog channel 6 showing a character generated flashing text message.
not sure where or what station that is.
KEFM on the Sutter Buttes, another one of those FM stations.

(Checked about two months ago,) 23 was still analog here in Hayward . (After switching KRCB off)
KBFK, another FM station. 23 is KMUV Salinas.
I was aware of another analog signal on channel 22. It never has any modulation, just blank carriers. I figured it was something in Sacramento but the FCC database doesn't show any analog stations on 22 near Sacramento. Turns out it is K22HB in Mammoth Lakes. Was I surprised! I didn't think it was possible to receive anything from the east side of the Sierras but its transmitter is at 7900'.
hey chuck you said that you make your own balun for 91xg, is it optimize only for UHF, unlike the 91xg balun that is wideband. i took off balun on 91xg and looks like it needs to be soldered on? Can you explain what you did dude, txs. hope your at sfgiants parade 😂
He made a coax balun which is inherently a narrow band balun, just like the standard UHF PCB balun that has been in use for a while. However, he could tune it for a specific frequency if he chose to do so.
If you want a wideband balun, just remove the PCB and install a standard wire-wound balun. That's what was standard on the driven element for our Yagi series up until 3 or 4 or 5 years ago.
