Well I started typing this and it got "lost".Seems to happen a lot lately here on AVS.
Well, not much happening here so I thought I'd post some interesting (hopefully) info on my local TV reception this morning. I had scanned channels on my LG 42LD550 some time ago and had a few channels in memory that only came in occasionally. But here thery were rock solid with 60% to 90% signal level and +90% signal quality. The LG gives both signal level and quality readings. I'm on the north side of Janesville just off I-90 and Hwy 26 near a ridge on Rotamer Rd. I have a 5 element UHF-VHF rat shack antenna in the garage attic space aimed S-SW and pick up Madison channels off the back side mostly.
On a whim, I rescanned channels and got WCGV TV24 out of Milwaukee and a slew of channels form Iowa and WMEC 22 from Macomb (?) Illinois.
Here are the channels I am still getting:
WHBF 4 Rock Island
KWQC 6 Davenport, IA
WQAD 8 Moline IA
WMBD 31 Peoria IL
KQIN 36 Davenport IA
WCGV 24 Milwaukee
WMEC 22 Macomb, Ill ?
What I find interesting is getting WCGV off the "side" of the antenna from Milwaukee. Also, I noticed nothing on channel 21 WHA out of Madison on my other bedroom TV. Apparently WMEC was so strong it knocked out 21 from Madison coming in from the back side of my antenna. I also have an SVI 2 port RF booster connected up mid within 20 feet of the antenna to feed another 40 to 50 feet of RG6 coax to the two TVs we have.
I know it must be summer atmospherics at work here, but still always interesting and fun to get some TV DX.
