Wind issues vary dramatically with location. In most cases the high winds I get are southerly and associated with storms. The Sierra Foothills don't get the northwest and north winds as much as the...

Wild life can cause strange problems. I had a Winegard preamp that stopped working because an Acorn Woodpecker filled it with acorns through one of the switch holes.

I beg to disagree and here's why:

He didn't specify, but I'm assuming 100' of RG6 from the antenna to the splitter/distribution amp.

RG6 -100' - Loss 5dB
8-way splitter - Loss 10 dB

This is borderline irrational.

I have no allegiance to AD and only recommend their products when I think appropriate. I'm not a fan of the DB8e but in this case it seemed the best choice; moderate...

I've found that low VHF requires an outdoor antenna. Anything indoors is hopeless. And then there's the manmade noise issue. I don't have a lot of noise so reception is pretty good.

Antenna recommendations are based pretty much on what your TV Fool report shows. In your case you have no VHF stations so you can go with a UHF antenna only. Your stations range from somewhat weak to...

You have mostly moderately strong signals that are LOS so reception shouldn't be a problem. The only problem might be the trees. Looking through a lot of 50' tress is not a good idea. I'd suggest the...

Now KMMW is even worse. My TV reports "Signal cannot be decoded" so the screen is simply blank. If I didn't check the diagnostic screen I'd think there was no signal at all. Maybe it'll go off the...

I agree 100% with getting the proper antenna for the job. But I'll bet you haven't tried turning the YA-1713 around for a better signal. Every high VHF antenna I have tried on low VHF has a null...

KFTY is back this morning but K03HY still looks to be off because KCSO is SNR 31 dB indicating no interference from K03HY.

You don't need any TV/Sat diplexers with just a TV antenna so you can bypass those in your pictures with barrel connectors although they may not be hurting you much.

No. I just checked it this afternoon. Same as before, black screens with a good SNR on KFTY and KCSO now with a 31 dB SNR.

I wonder what happened? No sign of Keith for some time now.

KMMW has a black screen. The transmitter is on the air but no programming. I don't know how long but it has been an extended period.

KUVS is off the air this afternoon. First time I've seen if off. KOFY comes in quite nicely without the adjacent channel interference.
