Problems with KGO-7

Does anyone have an idea on what's going on with KGO 7.1. I've never seen it pixellate and break-up this bad. Started around 5pm with the news.

I see that KGO VC 7 RF 35 got 185780 missed packets at ~ 5:30 PM.

KGO VC 7 RF 7 got a large number of transport errors (104) at 7 AM.

It is hard to tell with samples thirty minutes apart, the intense test for RF 7 just started and looks clean.

Thanks. Seems to be ok now at 5:50pm. I was very surprised to see KGO this bad. "Stuff" happens I guess.

Thanks for the Walnut Grove antenna info, Chuck. I've saved it for future reference.

The signals I receive from Walnut Grove are way out of line for what TVFool says they should be. They show KQCA way lower than the VHFs, 13 and 31, and that's the way it is under the unusual conditions I had yesterday, but normally KQCA is best. Weird, huh? KOVR has always been weaker than 6, 10, 31 and 58 here. About half the time it's below the cliff edge, while the other four are normally coming in.

Last night as the signals weakened a bit, KQCA started to get stronger again. This morning it was back to being the strongest of the group.

I used to see KCRA in here solid until the KGO translator when on the air, then I'd see if occasionally, but for the past few months I haven't seen it at all. I get some signal on 35 that holds at about 13-14 dB, but I don't know if it's KCRA or KGO that I'm receiving. I have never seen the KGO translator here. The KTVU translator either, for that matter, but I get KAXT 1 and KEXT 27 about 80% of the time.

It's these interesting reception situations that have kept me interested in TV reception since I was a kid back in New Hampshire. You never know what might happen.

Just checked it and it's on 4.3, 14.3 and 64.3. Rescan your TV?

Hi Ben – There does not seem to be anything related to a step attenuator when I look at my menu options. Or maybe I am lost in the terminology. The options are:

Single channel mode
Selected channels mode
Spectrum mode
Sound On/Off
Power to Antenna>off (current setting)
Power to Antenna>5V
Power to Antenna>12V
Select channels
Setup>Contrast
Setup>Auto Power off
Setup>CCIR System
Setup>Signal Type

I see it on Amazon and it looks like a fun tool to monkey around with. If I had more things I could use it on that I could benefit from I would consider buying it. I typically use my money on gambling, booze and cheap women and then I squander away the rest.

With my setup I think I am in really good shape with my attic mount system. It is only this one channel I wanted to try and tweak. I don’t care much about the other 2Edge channels.

Great. And for what it is worth, I did do a google search even before I posted the question. I gave up after my 5 minute rule expired as all the pages I saw led me around for too long with out getting to the point, which is why I asked here. Much appreciated for you to cut to the chase for me.

Next steps…Fog Fest on a clear day today, and am still walking in the direction of getting a pre-amp in place.

Wildfire ignites in Santa Cruz mountains on Loma Prieta peak

The pictures show the fire is right in the field of transmitters.
