I am glad Cozi coming to 21.2. Predictions now confirmed as they tested previously. Would also like to see Antenna TV since no longer pick up after moving from 46 to 18.

I get tired of seeing Scott Clark all the time myself but I suppose he pays the bills. And he still is not as annoying as that blond mom and daughter always promoting Randy Marion.

The DB8e was designed with larger reflectors, as well as the DB4e and DB2e. Seems to help gain more signal. And Channel Master and Antennacraft stopped making those parabolics years ago due to cost...

Meredith tested Cozi in Greenville as well as Atlanta. But perhaps they decided to pass on it unless they drop the radar on 21.2.

Yes this is a big improvement and the way I believed it should have been done all along. All of their news programs are now improving.

Consider Antennacraft HBU33 or Winegard 7696 for more reliable reception of High VHF at 35 miles, as well as UHF. May be better for WBBM. The CM7778 amp should be ok, or the Winegard LNA200.

I am not sure about that. Because today I am seeing the black borders at the top and bottom of the screen again on WBTV. But WLOS has Grit on 13.3 and it still fills the entire screen. But I can...

I still have one of those Radioshack double bowtie antennas, and it is a great antenna for UHF and High VHF. There was also a Channel Master version.

I wonder if WSOC will drop Accu-Weather or add a third channel when they add Laff.

I think the 1080i stations like CBS and NBC look a bit sharper than ABC and FOX. But it somewhat depends upon how you adjust the picture settings and the sharpness levels on your TV.

VHF channels such as 7, 9, 11, and 13 are more subject to noise and interference. And possibly the electrical components within the TV board are not isolated or grounded very well from the TV tuner....

They made some sort of adjustment with the picture on 3.3, where the picture is zoomed in more and fills the screen. Similar to WLOS. But it may not be the ideal configuration, but perhaps as said...

If they keep 55 on 46.3 it would be nice if they could adjust the aspect to a standard 16x9 format to fill up the screen. Currently they have the black space on the top and bottom. And they could...

Looks like they are keeping 55 simulcast on 46.3 for now, although 55.1 is back to full power. And I wonder if they still plan for 55.2 program again since 55.3 has not been renamed 55.2.

The original Mohu Jolt amp performed much better than the current version. But the LNA100 from Winegard was the best performing inline amp.

Sounds like signal is too strong causing overload or multipath, which can cause dropouts. Try reaiming antenna, perhaps slightly away from WSOC direction. Or add attenuater and remove amp if used.

The UHF elements are the shorter one in front of the corner reflector. The longer horizontal elements are for high VHF and could be a bit more bidirectional than the UHF. HBU55 is a good antenna.
