Hello from Clarksville. I hope this is true, as I can get SOME reception. Thias is what I'm picking up with a Silver Sensor.
KHBS Analog 40, Digital 21, 90-95 percent
KTHV Analog 11, Digital 12-1 and 12-2, 80 percent
KLRT Analog 16, Digital 30, 80 percent
KASN Analog 38, Digital 39, 60 percent
I need to get a better outdoor antenna, and am waiting for replies. I posted the following in the Little Rock forum.
This is my first post...YA!!!!
I'm in Clarksville, and YES I am getting reception, quite a bit actually. My new Sony 46 incher is to be delievered today, but I have been experimenting. I went and got a US Digital receiver from Wally World. I tried two indoor antennas, which didn't work much. Then I tired the silver sensor. WOW. I am able to pick up KHBS out of Fort Smith (Analog Channel 40, Digital Channel 21) just about anywhere. Then I continued experimenting. I moved it to a window, continuted to pick up Channel 40 with about 95 percent and also locked onto KLRT (Analog Channel 16, Digital Channel 30) with 60-70 percent. (This is good for an NFL nut like me).
So I took it one step further and got an old shower curtain rod and put the antenna on top of it and took it outside. Another improvment. I was still able to pick up KHBS and KLRT. Then in a scan, KTHV (Analog Channel 11, Digitial Channels 12-1 and 12-2) locked on. I continued moving the wire, yes the cable wire, around and was able to lock KTHV in at 80-90 percent. Then in another scan, KASN (Analog Channel 38, Digital Channel 39) came in spotty, about 60 percent. I was able to see their weather forecast pretty good though. The receiver was also trying to lock on to Digital Channel 9, which I think might be KAIT Channel 8 out of Jonesboro. I'm not sure.
I am not getting anything else out of Fort Smith. (KFSM Analog Channel 5, Digital Channel 18 or KFTA Analog Channel 24, Digital Channel 27). Fox KPBI Channel 46 doesn't even have a digital channel. In any case, 0 percent readings. I am also not picking up KETS Channel 2 or 13 or KATV Channel 7. Nothing on KARK Channel 4 either, but I've read the horror stories on Channel 4 anyway, so I don't expect to get those since I'm over 80 miles anyway.
I need to know which outdoor antenna to get for my area. I think it's worth it since I'm picking up four networks between the two cities.
BTW, I am operating a 30db amplifier on this silver sensor. Please respond, as I believe I am the first person to report from Johnson County. BTW, a person in Pope County (Russellville) said I wouldn't pick anything up digitally. He's a tv salesman too. What an idiot.
I am on Dish Network also, and lan to eventually upgrade to the HD receiver model 811.
If anyone has any ideas, please holler at me.
