I was off a little in distance
. According to AntennaWeb.Org, I'm around 54.4 miles from the KHSL transmitter. Not as far away as thought. I'm pretty sure that KNVN digital and KHSL digital are or were transmitting from atop Cohassit. Now that I'm getting a very good signal for KNVN, and that the signal increases slightly when I point a few degrees to the South of Cohassit, that just maybe, the KNVN signal is now transmitting from Tuscan which is only 25 miles away.
cmassa, reception of ABC and PBS doesn't sound too good for you. From what I understand, KRCR eventually is going back to channel 7 for digital and KIXE back to 9. I suspect that only around that time will they use repeaters for the digital signals. It would be competitive if they did repeat the digital signal for your area, I could see that pushing the others to upgrade sooner.
Chas, It sounds like you are in a dead spot for FOX, it is putting out a pretty strong signal now (for me since it went HD the signal has increased 20%) but from what the Chief Engineer has told me there is no power increase and that in the near future they are going to power on their new/high wattage transmitter. We are in the same boat for KHSL. I'm using a fringe antenna on a rotator. I get a signal that fluxuates from 0 to 36%.
I have two Dish DVR 921's which lock and acquire on channel 2-1 but on a couple of occassions, remained on 36-1. I think that there is a big PISP problem that is blocking the audio/video becasue it remaps to 2-1 instead of 24-1? If I change channel to and from 2-1 with the DVR's, they will flash the video for less than a second. I am happy that my Panasonic LCD had the ATSC which is more sensitive and works with KNVN's signal.
