Pulling in K31GL fine here in Plano. Same signal as usual, give or take a few percent.

Whatever it was, K31GL seems to be straightened out and working OK now.

Although I'll repeat this once again, in case anyone reading is in a position to do something about it: with all the simulcasts among channels 26, 28, 31, and 50, why can't we get a simulcast of Retro TV on another station so we have a backup when things like this happen?

Whoops-by the way, I just checked 26.2 and Soul of the South is off the air, replaced by color bars! What up?

Update: Yes K31GL finaly came back for me last night. But I had to do a scan about 3 times before I was able to grab it. Thanks to all that replied to my original post!

Hi Gents,


New to the forum read some great reviews. I need some help with antenna recommendation or suggestions to receive channels from the DFW Cedar Hill antenna farm. Open to any combination, single, yagi, bowtie, large, or small antennas. I plan on mounting the antenna(s) outdoors. Coaxial cable length will be approximately 75 - 100ft long.


Attached is my TVFool report.


Thank You for your assistance and any response.

At a distance of 80-90 miles or so, you are likely going to have problems with any big antenna. Maybe nukeboy has a suggestion, since he's in Decatur. I was going to suggest Antennacraft's biggest longest range HD1850, but on UHF doubt that would even do it.

It's a little over 60 miles to Cedar Hill from my house in Anna Tx, I get all the channels fine with a Windward Hd7698p and a Boost xt preamp.

Do you have any kind of antenna now?

Might try a similar antenna with a channel master cm777, but you are 5 to 10 miles farther out than me.

--- I take it back, I pulled the Tv fool report for my house and the DFW broadcasts are alot higher levels at my house than yours are. Distance is similar but all my stations are LOS.

For CBS and NBC, it looks like you'll have better luck aiming for Wichita Falls. Do you specifically want stations from DFW?
