Symptoms are more like C34 capacitor failure. Which would also explain why the new drive won't work. When I had a HDD fail the 'Pal put up a HDD error message letting me know.

KVFW 38.x off the air all morning.

Today 38.3 KVFW "Retro" is solid (thank you!) and the signal is up to 66-68, but Bob's graph shows the opposite with mostly "undecodeable signal". So this time the graph and my observations are very...

I checked Bob's graphs and didn't see anything tropo-wise happenng, and my signal was stable over 60 not dropping to 0 like it will do when interfered with, 60+ good enough normally. So I am pretty...

I have a steady 60 signal here today, but Retro occasionally locks up with a frozen frame for several seconds up to a minute, all while the signal stays solid. So they still need a few more clues to...

Bob's graphs for KVFW correlate very closely to my received signal. I could go up adjust the antenna and peak the signal on 38 but when I do that KTVT goes downhill and begins dropping out. Pretty...
