Channel 10 WCAU OTA has had poor audio sync and dropouts for at least a month. I also now notice that their entire signal is not being received, at times. WCAU was always easy to pick up OTA in the past.

Wonder what has happened?

WCAU = Comcast.

You're surprised?

29-1 wtxf-dt

Wha happened with ch 29 tonight? I wanted to watch the baseball game and I had NO signal whatsoever.

I figured it was a problem with them and I guess it was because when it came back later (say, 10:15pm) I checked my signal strength and it was a solid 98%

Just an update. I am located a mile north of the Lehigh Valley Northeast Extension Exit. I have an antenna that is 20 feet above the roof of a two story house on a tower with rotator. Separate VHF and UHF antennas and preamps. Blonder Tongue VHF broadband yogi, two Finco UHF stacked yogis, two Finco preamps with 20db gain. Also FM Yagi (CM). Lots of cable, no amplifiers. UHF antennas and both preamps were made in the 1970's.

EyeTV used with HDHomerun and EyeTV tuners.

Reception is most all Philly stations: 2,3,6,10,12,17,23,29,35,39,51,52,57,69
and all Wilkes-Barre/Scranton stations, and all Harrisburg/Lancaster/York stations.
No New York stations. Trouble with 52 when trees get leaves.

You sir have an awesome setup. I live a few mile from the PBS affiliate in South Jersey and I can't even get it. My antenna is pointed at the antenna farm in Philadelphia. The tuner in my TiVo Roamio can't pick it up of the 'back" of my Antennacraft 58814 UHF/VHF antenna. Hence I settle for watching Motor Week from my Roku's PBS application.

Once again a tip of the hat to your antenna expertise.
