5 is odd where I am in Duvall. I get all the other locals rock solid no glitches at all... Just recently 5 is down to 77% and the odd break up... Must be atmospherics? Does 5 broadcast on a lower power? They are on the same Queen Anne Towers as 4 and 7 etc right?
KOMO-4, KING-5 and KIRO-7 each have their own (separate) towers. All three are on Queen Anne Hill. KONG-16 also shares the KING-5 tower.
Do you get KSTW-DT over there (36-1/11-1)? In the beginning, they were focusing their limited-power digital signal toward Tacoma. So, many folks south and north of their tower are able to see their digital channel. But folks east and west would have little or no signal to work with. Perhaps they have increased their power and eliminated the directionality of their signal by now (although I have not heard so).
