30.3 Retro TV
RF Channel 51
47 miles @191

43.1 - Antenna TV
RF Channel 43
47 miles @ 191

I can sometimes get KCHF-DT RF Channel 10 which is a mirror of KYNM_LD.

Last night's signals on my HDHomeRun
10: 70% strength, 49% signal quality, 100% symbol quality
43: 84% strength, 65% signal quality, 100% symbol quality
51: 82% strength, 58% signal quality, 100% symbol quality

I ordered a Solid Signal HDB91X antenna to replace the existing antenna in hopes of increasing the signal strength and quality of 43 and 51. Any idea if this will work or what a better antenna alternative might be?

TVFool shows the following from my location:

I've got Comcast cable so the only channels that I don't get from them that looked interesting OTA are Retro TV and Antenna TV. I'd love to also get COZI TV but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere near here OTA.

What are people in Los Alamos successfully using for OTA?
It turns out I didn't have my preamp set to combined UHF/VHF so only the UHF channels were getting any amplification. Now that I fixed that, I'm getting a strong signal on all of the VHF channels including channel 10 (KCHF-DT) so I don't need KYNM-LD. I'm still curious what people in Los Alamos are using for antennas though.
