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

Thanks in Advance for your guidance
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 :). Crap I say

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.
