The blue backlighting has been restored in the news studio on WCNC. But it looks better this time in HD, and I think it may be new lighting. Looks like a lighter shade of blue and looks much nicer this time around.

Does RG-11 coax provide any advantages over RG-6 for home use? (mainly for connected an outdoor antenna) Thanks in advance.

Over 600Mhz and over 150' for the coax than yes other wise no. For me having both cables available I use RG-6 for my OTA antenna farm and satellite farm with out an issue.

All Comments made are my own and not of my employer.

The atmospherics must have changed enough for me to get WIS-TV (Columbia, SC) on 10.1, 10.2 (ThisTv) and 10.3 (Bounce). 10.1 is NBC, there was a lip sync issue with voice leading video (WCNC was fine).

I was scanning my DISH 722 to update the channel list for 64.3 and they popped in. The 722 has great DVR software, so it's used for live OTA viewing (pausing, fast forward/reverse), only thing missing is the OTA guide. I picked up Greensboro 20.1,2,3,4 one weekend in the spring also. It's like DXing for AM radio stations at night as a kid .

Thanks for the info. I was contemplating buying a spool of it. It's a bit on the pricey side however.
