I saw huge signals coming from Salinas this morning around 10 am. KMUV analog was full quieting and K29AB was almost full quieting. KION was about 25 dB above average and SNR 32 dB, a number seen only on KSBW previously. KQET on RF 25 (1.8 KW ERP) was as strong as the KOVR usually is and was overriding KOVR for awhile. Overall everything from down there was 20-30 dB above average. Signals were dropping by 11 am. Most other signals were below average.

I tried to post last night, but the AVS site was having problems and I couldn't save my post.

After seeing Ben's post I took a look around the channels and the Walnut Grove stations were all above average. The two VHF stations were much stronger than usual. Stations from up north in Marin and Sonoma and from the South Bay were just at their average levels.

This morning signals are all about normal here.

Since I posted a couple hours ago, signals from Walnut Grove have gone through the roof! Both VHF stations - 6 and 10, and five of the UHF stations - 3, 13, 21, 35 and 46 are all above 20 dB SNR right now. KMAX is coming in at 29.5 to 30 dB! KTNC from Mt. Diablo is also 3 dB stronger than usual at 26 dB.

Both KSPX 29 and whatever station is coming in on channel 13 are SO CLOSE to being detected for the first time, but neither one can get past 14.5 dB to make it over the cliff edge.

Despite the extra strong signals from the east and northeast, the signals from up north and down south are still at about normal levels.

I've been getting KFTY, 3, off of my CM 4228! Unbelievable!

KGO Problems?

Subject: [HDTV-in-SFbay] ABC 7-1 Reception Issues

In all my years of flawless OTA HDTV, last night and tonight ABC 7-1 has been breaking up very badly. It happened last night about the same time, around 7:45pm. It lasts for a few minutes and is then fine for the rest of the evening. Anybody else experiencing this? I don't see this on the other stations.
KGO VC 7 RF 7 has a translator on RF 35 from Mt. Allison, are you sure that you are not using it. Problems often occur with RF 35.

The chart for KGO VC 7 RF 7 shows no glitches, but as the samples are ~ 30 minutes apart it is not definitive.

http://ruka.org/~toast/atscdata/chart.php?c=7

Could there be something in your house that is in use at that time that is causing interference?

I will ask on avs.

Any problem with RF 7 would be very unusual.

It's puzzling to me as to why you don't receive KTNC much better. You're just 30 miles away and I assume you can see Mt. Diablo from your roof. It's seems like it ought to be max SNR all the time. Unfortunately I didn't measure KTNC when I was there. That probably would have answered it.

KTNC is 80 miles from here, almost LOS and the SNR is typically 31 dB, although it does drop at times to as low as 25 dB. KTNC and KTXL are about the same signal strength here.

Thanks. I responded in the Yahoo group but to answer your interference question, I can't think of anything in the house that would all of a sudden cause a brief interference at the same time every night (at least the last two nights) and then go away. I've always used RF 7, which has always been reliable and rock solid for me. I'll see if it happens again tonight at the same time frame during Wheel
