And don't forget lightning - when WKYC was on RF2, if there was a thunderstorm within 50 or 100 miles, the reception would always be a constantly freezing and pixelating mess.

Also summertime...

If they really eliminate everything above 31 (or 36), and assuming most stations do not turn in their licenses completely and go off the air, then probably almost everyone will end up...

I remember receiving WKBN on occasional tropo when they were running 2 HD's, and the CBS picture was definitely much softer than the same feed on WOIO (though I think WKBN was running 720p CBS at the...

Seems to me that 61.4 is especially bad on dark and fast-changing scenes, wasn't that bad a couple weeks ago. Though I don't watch the channel all that much. 61.3 seems somewhat better, but still...

Agreed these look good for 2 1080i's with relatively static images on both, but wait until there's a soccer match on 61.1, I'll bet that'll not be pretty.

It's been like that ever since they started. Must be an issue with 61 as Grit (which is from the same distributor I think) on 43.3 is formatted correctly.

Yep, and 61.4 is a pixelated mess too now that they have gone to commercials with lots of fast-changing scenes.

I suppose we'd better get used to this kind of thing with the FCC out to take away...

61.1 and 61.2 are both 1080i

61.3 (GetTV) seems more pixelated, and 61.4 looks about the same (crappy pan-and-scan prints stretched to 16:9 then letterboxed in 4:3 so it looks windowboxed on a WS...

Usually they letterbox 16:9 movies in 4:3 (or windowboxed on a WS display unless zoomed). Or worse, they show a P&S print stretched to 16:9 and then letterboxed.

43.3 shows 16:9 movies in proper...

Their website says they will be off until Oct. 23. Wonder why they have so many transmitter problems?

True, but even with nulls the signals should be super-strong in his area since he is so close and very much line-of-sight to the towers. The smaller RCA should be plenty unless he wants the Akron...

I'd try indoor rabbit ears first (the cheap, unamplified ones), preferably in front of a south-facing window (since the transmitters are to the south of you in Parma). If it doesn't work reliably,...

19.2 MeTV

Surprised that Andy Griffith is airing on 19.2/MeTV - I thought that they could not air it locally because of WBNX having the local rights (they've even been covering promos for it). Or did someone...

It was back at its usual strength in western Medina Co. yesterday morning (after having been gone a week).

As of last night (and today), it is gone again. If it's on, must be at low power.
