I'm beginning to doubt that we can receive this channel problem free from our locations with ANY antenna. I installed a VHF only Winegard antenna and still get dropouts (both audio and video). It has nothing to do with weather or signal strength. Oftentimes I get these dropouts with a strong signal that is only fluctuating a bit. I have no idea if it's multipath or something at the station end. I'm close to giving up on this channel (my wife gave up on it last week....too frustrating). It's too bad, since many of the broadcasts look really good.
When I added a ChannelMaster 7777 pre-amp, I started getting a much better signal, but still dropouts. Sometimes its beautiful, other times unwatchable. I think I may add another antenna just so I can point my combo back toward the city because CBS is suffering. I have a good dialog with an Antennacraft tech. I'm waiting for feedback from him. The next thing I'm going to do is replace the RG-59 cable with some RG-6. That should help a little. Damn weather. I know we need this rain, but I want to get back on my roof.
Andy, that link you gave is redirecting me to www.ardman.net.
I don't see anything about WTNH there. http://100kwatts.tmi.net/tv/CT.html
has the application at 20.5 kwatts also, but doesn't say anything about direction. Their engineer posted a while back saying that the tower wouldn't be up until October at the earliest, so I'm still searching for immediate results.
