And I was just thinking this weekend of deleting that second MN channel from my Tivos and TVs.....glad I didn't.
Oh and after repointing my attic antenna just a tad I now get the 43s just fine, 80 on my signal strength. I was watching them quite a bit this past weekend, 43.1 and 43.4 the most and I have to say they are pretty nice to have for free
Amazing how just moving the antenna only a couple degrees went from nothing on the 43s to 80% signal strength. I really have to get my 8-bay out of my attic, the trusses are causing havoc with multipath, now I'm starting to get breakups on 5.1
Time for a tripod on the roof, I really dislike putting the antenna out in the elements as leaving it in the attic it basically look like new even after decades but multipath is really killing me! I'm sure it would be much better if I the antenna were pointed through the gable end but unfortunately that's 90 degrees the wrong way
Another option I was thinking about was somehow hanging a mast under my 2' overhang as that direction points due North which is where the telefarm is, just not sure how I'd attach the mast to the soffit.......probably best to just bite the bullet and anchor a decent sized tripod to the roof which would be ~10' higher than the soffit anyway.
The thing that slays me about my reception is it can be great one day on all channels and then breaking up on several the next, with no real change in rain, wind, trees, etc. just the flakiness of our TV system
