There are a lot of OTA channels I can't get at this time, like 35, and now this new 16.7 is MIA -- but I can't get anything in the 16 range anyhow (or 2 or 9 or lots of others), and only one 15. I guess I'll keep blaming the big buildings between me and the Sandia Peak transmitters. I do get several other interesting channels (4s,5s,19s, a few 40s, and the50s) but at this time of year I'm only recording 3-4 things a week anyhow, and can download a few cable shows, so not much to complain about really currently.

Debbys,

KQDF-LP is on analog RF CH. 25 not RF ch 35 KNME-DT owns the freq, channel.

As for downtown reception issue you might try directional antenna, and make sure you use VHF-low, VHF-HI and UHF TV broadcast band.

Hopes that's helps...

Well, one of those horrid "long-running scripts" wiped out my detailed reply; a robot just tried to talk to me on the phone; and the site remains incredibly slow. So I'll type this in notepad (while I typed, a long-running script struck the site again and ads have bad certificates, too). I can't have an outdoor antenna (though some tenants have Dish). "Corporate" would freak if I tried (they freaked at me putting out a birdbath and no more seed feeders either after 10 years of my doing so). So I have an RCA flat rectangular antenna in an east-facing window. Other tenants use similar antennas. I think these are okay, but sometimes I wonder if local TV transmitters are just weak and/or aimed elsewhere. For a year or more I couldn't get channel 13, then suddenly I could (I can't get 2.+ at the moment, but nothing on there), and I can't blame an immobile building for all bad reception. I'll keep experimenting, sometimes there is something good on local TV that I want to watch and can't find on the 'net.

Hope you guys can help me on new free to air OTA broadcast sub channel called Stadium TV network it's supposed to carry the Mountain West conference which might carry the Lobos games on the OTA FTA TV bands.

As for the other local TV broadcast news not much else going on but hang in there.
