I am new and was directed to this site by City-Data San Antonio. I have read through pages of this thread and hardly understand a word of it.
I would like some suggestions on an antenna that is moderatly priced and will recieve KENS, KSAT, WOAI, and KLRN. The rest I am not that concerned about. I currently have a Phillips SDV2730/27. I live at Bitters and Blanco.
I have scanned and rescanned. I then did the re-re scan disconecting the antenna and shutting the power off then re-attaching the antenna and scanning.
These are the channels that I can recieve:
No Kens 5 anywhere at all, not even a peep.
I do have WOAI: 4.1, 4.2 (Very spotty).
KLRN: 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4 (great).
KSAT 12.1 (good).
ION: 26.1 QUBO: 26.2 ION LIFE: 26.3 Worship: 26.4 (good)
The following channels are in and out.
29.1, 35.1, 41.1
There is nothing on KHCE: 16.1, 16.2, 16.3, 16.4, 16.5
I have found out that the co-axial cable must also be positioned just so to recieve KLRN. If I left the antenna stationary but moved the cable, I would loose the signal.
I then moved on to the bedroom antenna
After another trying hour I have KLRN and KSAT and almost WOAI. I don't know what else because I was getting @#%$!
I oriented the VHF antenna due south and the rabbit ears kind of splayed out forward about 45 degrees.
Any help would be appreciated, Thank you in advance.
