KVFW SQ going between 51-53 and 0. Just below the minimum needed to get a lock if there's anything to lock on to.

When I used to be able to receive KVFW 6 to 9 months ago it would be between 60 and 68 and stable. That correlates pretty much to Bob's graphs too, when his average SQ was above 60.

Should I get a roof or attic (powered) antenna. My small 14 dollar one is sub par...(100-200 dollar range)

Maybe, maybe not - can you post a TVFool.com report (or a link to one) for your address?

So it looks like KNAV is planning to stay on RF 22 after all; they're just trimming back how much of the metroplex they'll cover.
CP modification approved by the FCC, so maybe they'll be back on the air "in living digital" before too long.

Edit: Incidentally, I just learned that they've been back on the air for a couple of weeks now, but they're still broadcasting in analog.

Here's a coverage map from Trip's rabbitears.info: https://www.rabbitears.info/contour....&lprw=N&head=Y. And here's a coverage map of KUVN-CA (currently on RF 47 but moving to RF 22): https://www.rabbitears.info/contour....&lprw=N&head=Y. To me it looks like the "blue" boundary of each one overlaps the "purple" boundary of the other some, so KNAV will probably need to make further changes (to avoid interfering with KUVN-CA) at some point. But it works for the moment.

I got tired of my relative in far NW Garland, 34 miles from Cedar Hill, not being able to get CH. 8 or CH. 13 reliably with an indoor amplified RCA antenna. So I opened up an RCA ANT 751, and plugged it into the amplifier, and propped it up on the floor behind the entertainment center, and the relative now gets CH. 8 & 13, as well as 4,5,11, and other channels.

I had wanted to mount the ANT751 in the attic, above the entertainment center, but there were weird boarded up areas, that I'm no mood to cut through. Until I can pay for someone to do the work to mount it and run cable, this will do. If it was my house, yes, I would mount that ANT751 inside, from the vaulted ceiling.

Cable Channel Choice is the only choice I want to make !!
