I think the following gives a good overview of SS vs. SNQ for the HDHR:
Out on the fringe, it’s still a rock solid 6.1 dB, which translates to 22% on my signal checker.
I was aware that some sort of physical work was being done on the broadcasting antenna in latter December or early January, but I don’t have any specific details.
BTW I have an ATi HDTV-Wonder, AVerMedia Duet, Hauppauge HVR-1600, ATi 650 USB Combo, and a HDHomeRun for a total of 7 tuners acorss 5 assemblies and 4 manufacturers - they all report differently and depending on the software/drivers I may or may not get anything more than a bar graph indication... is that strength, quality, or? Again, it's just a relative point, not meaning to brag. Besides, at 9.8 miles from the towers in Monrovia and the years of tweaking I should be getting an excellent signal!
As for my signal checker: it reports both signal strength and signal quality. The bar on the application changes color according to signal quality, with red being bad, green being good and blue being the best (verging on being too strong).
To save you from having to page back, and to illustrate what I am saying about the color changes:
The software itself can be downloaded from here; but I am told it will not work with other manufacturer’s cards. The name of the app itself is TuneFinder.exe.
Anything to do with AT&T I stay away from. AT&T is Uverse. That company is Satan!! Example: my 70 year old mother had their phone service at her store (landline). They made her sign a 3 year contract. After signing they raised price. After 3 years she left them. They sent her a bill for $800 saying that since she didnt send letter in writing they renewed her contract without her consent. Since they renewed the contract and she left them, they felt she owed them $800 for leaving. She did not owe for calls made, past bills etc, just $800 simply because she left them. They continue to harass her 2 years later. And have marked her credit with this. AT&T is Satan!!
A quick look at William Hepburn's Worldwide Tropospheric Ducting Forecasts revealed the reason why.
It looks like the atmosphere will be very, very favorable for dxing this weekend.
I just got updated TSReader data from WHDF (and the other Huntsville stations) and I wanted to let you know that your TSID is wrong. It is currently set as 1 when it should be 67 (0x0043).

Good eyes Trip. Our PSIP generator was acting up, so we went back to letting the encoder do a "static" psip, while still allowing the PSIP generator to update the EPG.
I'll let our CE know.
I haven't been here for a while, but I do have a question. I live about 3 miles north of the TN AL border and I want to try to get Nashville OTA. I have a channel master 4228 antenna. It will get channel 2 on a good day but not much else. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good antenna that might bring in 4 and 5?
I think WTVF is still on the VHF band. They have a permit to move to frequency 25, but as whether they will ever actually move there... your guess is as good as mine.
WSMV is firmly rooted in VHF-HI on frequency 10.
You will need something that gets both the UHF and VHF bands for the Nashville market. That's something that not a lot of people here in Huntsville UHF Land may have experience with.
We have DirecTV and my wife set to record. It is APTV fundraising though. I'm kind of miffed. Just wondering if it is D*'s fault.
PBS stations tend to change programming with little or no notice during fund raising.
ok... i m new to dropping cable and going to digital antenna..... i bought an antenna to supplement my ROKU so i can get local broadcasts.....PROBLEM is the signal always cuts in and out. I cant watch a single show without it freezing up every few minutes..... any ideas what I should do?
Where are you, and what kind of antenna do you have?
Even if it's an indoor antenna, it's all about height height height! Get it up over everything in the room, or in the attic if possible. Depending on where you live, you might need an outdoor antenna, or a good antenna in the attic.
It was 54-3 out of with METV it looks very promising watching MASH right now, also caught a little bit of the Rifleman
That’s nice to have now that summer reruns are coming up.
MeTV is the network tag for TitanTV listings, BTW.
channel 11 = 66 to 69
channel 15 = 81 to 87
channel 19 = 93 to 100
channel 25 = 75 to 75
channel 31 = 93 to 100
channel 48 = 93 to 94
channel 51 = 84 to 87
channel 54 = 93 to 100
Also, who in this area installs antennas ?
My parents live in Kendale Gardens, and I put up a Channel Master CM4228 with a Channel Master preamp for them. It was about 40 feet up, and picked up everything.
I also tried out an Antennas Direct XG91 (I think that's the model), and it worked fine also.
