Charter cable TV service was down throughout Western NC and Upstate SC last night. Which is why it is a good idea to have an antenna as a back up for local and regional channels.

Also with a good outdoor antenna you may have a shot at Baltimore, but an appropriate amp and filtering system may be necessary to avoid overload from the strong local signals. Possibly a Clearstream...

That $299 promo is truly the best deal to date for an OTA DVR, especially a TiVo. The Channel Master DVR+ models are $249 and $399. So that TiVo deal is a happy medium worthy of consideration at this...

55 is back and a strong signal. Which I always find interesting as they are 225 kw power compared to WJZY and WBTV at 1000kw power. And the signal strength is basically the same with much less power....

Spoke with WJZY/WMYT receptionist. They are definitely replacing the transmit antenna for Channel 55. Don't know if it will be positioned differently on the tower, but I guess it will still be side...

What I meant was there was probably some sort of technical glitch on Charter's end, whatever the case may be. And I thought maybe they got the feed from an antenna, but was not sure.

Probably Charter lost their feed from WCCB. And perhaps WGHP was the back up channel from the days when both stations were previously FOX affiliates. But I wonder if Charter receives WCCB by antenna,...

It is also a good antenna for regions to the west of Charlotte, as it is optimized for High VHF and UHF. West of Gastonia, you may receive WSPA-RF7, WLOS-RF13, and SCETV-RF9. As well as possibly...

They have change WSOC translator from 9.5 to 9.9. And 64.5 is now 64.9. But same program and still RF30. And they appear to have added program info which is nice.

The C2V should be adequate for the local Harrisburg/Lancaster stations. But a larger antenna and amp such as Winegard 7698 outdoors should receive Baltimore at 56 miles. DC would be a bit more...

I believe the HDB8X is the same as the MCM 8-bay version, which may be a bit cheaper. I think it is the same manufacture.

Well noise figure may not be the only issue. But if Channel 2 is WCBS from NYC, then they are actually RF33 on UHF, not VHF. And the LNA200 reportedly does perform better on UHF than VHF. But that...
