Would an amplifier solve the problem with WESH and if so which one would be a good buy and get the job done.

You might have to fiddle with your antenna to pick it up. I can pick it up if I point it NW and I am just south of you. What kind of antenna did you go with, as some work a little better than others to pick up stubborn stations like WESH.

I'm a 'hooker' and a knitter. I guess that makes me bi-stitchual :).

Gonna need to know more about your antenna. Make, model, length of RG-6, preamp make and model. etc

WESH is VHF (actual channel is 11). So, if you're working with a UHF-only antenna, there's your problem. Also helps to have your TVFool report link so we can see what's in every direction. Need to know your structure... single family home, apartment and roof composition.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

New subchannels

On channel 43 (RF 43)
Escape seems interesting.
Bounce is already on 65.3, so it's redundant.

Picked up that new 43.4 last evening. It looked like all ESCAPE pre-launch promos when I tuned in. That signal is in and out for me down here in Davenport.

Also I forgot to mention Grit tv on 9.3 ( RF 39 )
Looks like they will all start on Aug 18.

WESH NBC with Winegard Freevision

Hey All!

I am looking for help. My fiance and I recently cut the cord when we moved in together. I bought a Winegard Freevision antenna and we use a Roku with Netflix among others that gets us all we need.

The one issue I am having is that I cannot seem to get NBC (for Sunday Night Football) no matter what I try. I have used 5(!) different antennas and none have picked it up. Looking for any advice you have.

I am in Hunters Creek - Can't attach the link to TVFool since I am new . It appears that NBC is in the same direction and same signal strength as all the networks. What am I missing?

We are in an apartment so I am just looking for an antenna I can use indoors without major mounting.

Thanks all!

WESH 2 is problematic because it's on VHF, RF channel 11. You need rabbit ears to be placed parallel to the floor and perpendicular to the signal direction and 28 inches tip to tip. http://www.kyes.com/antenna/rabbitear.html

The FreeVision receives VHF better off the back than the front. Try facing it backwards to see if that helps for WESH.

Wow, I am SURPRISED that no one has mentioned this yet.

Retro TV (RTV) has found a 3rd home in Orlando, FL!

It is now available on WRCF-CD 29-1. Source: http://www.tvnewscheck.com/article/7...wrcfcd-orlando

If you check out the latest Retro TV schedule, they have added Mystery Science Theater 3000 (yes, the old Comedy Central-era eps!, per TitanTV listings), old-school Doctor Who, and will soon add the classic NBC soap opera The Doctors.

And yes, there are still cartoons on Saturday Morning on Retro TV!

Bounce TV will be moving to to 43.3 so it will be gone from 65.3 They are moving them to all the Univision owned channels. 65.3 will need something for 65.3 maybe we will get Cozi TV in Orlando now.
