(I deleted my earlier posts in this thread because they were off-topic, except for the first one when I said to Warren that NBC was on VHF-low RF channel 2.....which upset Warren. I should have left that one in place.)
I had something to eat, which brought my blood glucose up, so I had a chance to think about your reception situation.

I'm coming from facts, not opinion. KSNV NBC, real rf channel 2, is the strongest signal listed on your tvfool report.
It is not in your best self-interest to be hostile to people who are trying hard to help you; it tends to stop the flow of useful ideas.
I thought you came to this Forum for some new ideas to help you receive NBC, because what you have tried didn't work.
If your mind is closed to new ideas that don't agree with your old ideas, then I don't think anyone can help you.
This is your tvfool report for zip 89149 in Las Vegas (an exact address report would be more accurate; have you updated your callsign address?):http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d1349f3e9865339
This is your tvfool report at W Alexander Rd & N Rainbow Blvd:http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d1349f5475ab6ff
KSNV is an NBC station, but it is on real channel 2. You might have received NBC on UHF, not from the main transmitter, but from a translator like (from Wiki):http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KSNV-DT
KSNV's signal is rebroadcast on the following translators:
K11CN Caliente, Nevada
K14ND-D Overton, Nevada
K44AA Pahrump (off the air)
K07CM Panaca, Nevada
K03CM Pioche, Nevada
K02EG Ursine, Nevada
KVBT-LP (channel 41) Santa Clara, Utah
If you can remember on what UHF channel you received NBC at your previous location, you can try hunting for it at your present location. If not, you are stuck with real RF channel 2 for NBC.
You have the idea that NBC can't be on real RF channel 2 in Las Vegas. If you are right, then tvfool, rabbitears.info, and the FCC are wrong. That is possible, but not likely.
3.1 and 3.2 are digital UHF that I received LAST YEAR in my house a mile south of here with only Rabbit Ears on a ten foot pole, and now can't get them.
Rabbit Ears are usually used for VHF signals.http://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/tvq?call=KSNVhttp://www.rabbitears.info/market.php?request=station_search&callsign=KSNV
The old VHF frequencies, especially 54 to 60 MHZ Is unusable for commercial TV now.
Yes, the noise level is high on VHF low, but there are still a few stations there.
According to rabbitears.info there are 6 full service CH2 stations, and 23 low power CH2 stations in the US:http://www.rabbitears.info/statistics.php
I've been experimenting with antennas since I was 8. This is how I hunt for missing channels now:http://www.avsforum.com/t/381623/the-official-avs-antenna-and-related-hardware-topic/14970#post_22105317Edited by rabbit73 - 7/30/12 at 8:46am
