Exclamation Channel 4.1 breaking up now

Checked websites without success.


Now 4.1 is going bananas. Sound is often 10 seconds off video, video breaks up, signal gone, freezing, etc. Has been happening for 20 minutes. All other main channels fine.

Fischer ?

I checked KKPX when you reported problems and it looked fine.

I just started KRON RF 38 just now and it also looks clean. Unless I say some thing else consider my report to be "no problems seen".

Try sending a report to "alfred e neuman care of mad magazine".

Does this happen all the time? I have not seen it anytime I have looked at 6.1.

What do you mean by "flashing?" Picture getting brighter and dimmer? Picture going on and off?

I've been a DVR consumer since 2001 with no regrets leaving VCR's in the dust. I find the use of a DVR to be much more user friendly than a VCR. Each of my disks are titles on the disk by the onboard software, then cataloged in a manually produced printout using software. A database can find any recording very quickly. Although, I too, wish for a huge memory storing single unit that could hold 500,000 gigabites of recordings, or more. That would be equivilent to over 10,000 dvds.

Hi Chuck,

Things have been busy for me, but we will get the antennas changed out for KTVJ-LD soon. I did get the figerglass supports to help give rigidity to the antennas. I have the LMR-400 and connectors and stripper tools in my car to make up the new cables. Hopefully today I can bring them into to work and make up the cables needed for the KTVJ-LD antennas using a network analyzer.

I did have some good fortune to be able to sell another Anchorage, AK, LPTV permit (this on is on channel 32, and the previous sale was for Anchorage 24). The $20k that we're getting for the permit is helping purchase another Anywave transmitter for our network that is already on order. There is a problem with K02QX-D where we are not up to full power. We'll have that fixed soon with the new transmiter.

Blessings,
Keith

It is happening pretty often. If I pause and then restart the picture it appears the picture is going on and off. On our projector it is just like a jitter. I was wondering if a jitter could be causing the problem on the TV when it upscales to 4k?

I have tried it on 6.4 and I saw it happen once or twice. I live in Concord and I am using a rooftop antenna.

Question Info please on CTV Channel 1.8

How does one find out the strength, resolution, # of viewers, coverage, etc. of any channel, but specifically 1.8 ?

I'm not sure what you're really asking but.....

Strength - If your TV doesn't tell you then you need special test equipment like a spectrum analyzer.

Resolution - You TV will tell you that.

# of viewers - Who knows?

Coverage - All sub channels of KAXT have the same coverage. Go to the FCC TV Query to find a coverage map.

https://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/tv-...station-search

Except that the coverage map is incorrect for KAXT in the FCC database. It says a directional antenna and then plots an omni which I know isn't right.
