The more I think about it, the more I realize how ridiculous my question was. Of course you want all stations.

Bottom line, I had a thought for a new antenna yesterday, which I should have built...

Thank you for your analysis. I'm glad we supplied a good file.

I have no such tuner but might be able to find someone in my Linux users group. I'll post a message and hope for a reply.

Am I correct that KWSD transmits from the KTTW tower?

I don't know about bizrate, but I've not noticed quality or reception problems. I do occasionally experience minor and temporary reception problems through the year but it's coming well now.
