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.
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 .
I thought quad shield will help provide protection from interference from other electronics, wifi, and cell phone towers etc.
If there was something radiating with enough energy to induce a signal on a regular RG-6 coax cable, it would certainly be picked up by the antenna and that would completely overwhelm any protection, if any, provided by the extra shielding. I think this is a non-issue that is used by salesmen to sell more expensive cables.
I'm more interested in attenuation loss. UHF loses signal strength as it travels down coax. The extra shielding has no effect on this.
Local news stations will be covering a major announcement at Carowinds at 11am this morning. The big media event will be streamed live on Carowinds.com. Stay tuned to your local news sources today for complete coverage.
Saw a promo for "Black Sheep Squadron" coming in September, but I can't remember which channel. Glad to be able to see those bent wing Corsairs again, boring holes in the sky and blasting away at AT-6s painted as Zeke-lookalikes.
