They've done work for me twice and do a good job. Take a look at my antenna page listed below to see what they've done for me.

With respect to Larry, my experience with the above installer was not good.
They canceled the appointment the day before the scheduled installation ("shoulder injury"), saying it would be a few more weeks. I told them to get back in touch when ready. They never did. I would avoid.

Some Auction Information

In another thread Trip posted a link to a survey by Free Press where they took a survey of public TV stations to see if they were participating in the auction or not. I thought it would be interesting to look at the local stations.

http://www.freepress.net/sites/defau...l_10-20-16.pdf

There were 4 categories:

Yes, the station is participating. (It's not known if that means selling, volunteering to move or channel sharing.)
No, the station is not participating.
Refused to answer, usually based on the station thinking they were prohibited from answering. We don't know.
Did not respond. Again we don't know.

Yes - KCSM (No surprise there. They been dying to sell for years.)
No - KQED, KQEH, KQET (I would have been surprised if it had been yes.)
Refused - KVIE, KRCB (My guess is that KVIE is a "no." No idea on KRCB.)
Did not respond - KMTP (My guess is that they are a "yes.")

Thursday is the end of the Stage 3 reverse auction so we should see the final price for that round shortly thereafter.

Antenna Recs?

http://tvfool.com/?option=com_wrappe...dfaf3c04d44b1b

I am in Fairfax (Marin) up on a ridge but without line of site to SF. YOu can get line of site to SF but you have to go a couple hundred feet. But generally I have good visibility, no trees, not in a canyon etc. Trying to figure out what kind of setup I would need to get the local channels. (Xposted from main hdtc tech as recommended, i think)

TVFool is having problems so it may have not been your problem.

Facebook Does 20 Gbps Millimeter-Wave Broadband

Quote:
Ultimately, FB intends to use MMW links to connect a fleet of solar-powered drones designed to provide broadband coverage over a “60-mile-wide area on the ground,” at data rates up more than 30 Gbps.

Maybe the sticks will someday get High Speed Internet. Google is also testing.
