I see alot of talk about channel 7 for my Orange County / Los Angeles Neighors experiencing difficulty with this signal as well.
Not sure what my options are for this particular channel, or if I fully understand the issue. I previosuly tried repointing my antenna a bit with no luck.
Any ideas on a solution.
Unfortunately I don't have a solution, but I live near you (Fullerton 92833, right near the 5/91 interchange). This
is the antenna I have on my apartment balcony (facing Mt Wilson with a clear line of sight). I get KABC just fine with no amp. In fact someone suggested I split my incoming signal to weaken it a bit due to what was said above (the signal overloading my Tivo's sensitive receiver chip, resulting in bad reception). Doing that, I got slightly better numbers on my Tivo's signal meter, but didn't notice any spectacular difference other than that (but I wasn't really having a big issue in the first place -- just a problem with KDOC, which wasn't related to reception anyway).
There is an occasional glitch on KABC, but frankly that seems to happen on all the channels I receive. Might be due to the Fullerton Airport which is located between me and Mt Wilson...
