Bolivar.

Its been pretty windy. If you use an outdoor antenna you might check to see it hasn't moved...

Well I have been officially "blocked" from KRBK's facebook page after pressing them as to why their signal is consistently the lowest by far and why it is that all other channels still come in for me when we get winter weather but theirs doesn't. LOL!

You don't give your location. Are you getting your signal from the SFN in and around Springfield,
or from the KWBM signal south of Springfield?

The installer I had do my work for me said he was aiming toward Bolivar.
post #5436 of 5449
located in Ozark. My signal strength is now around 37% or so. Absolutely no issues picking up any other channels despite the snow.

It's absolutely ridiculous I can't pick this up ALL the time with a separate antenna + preamp+ distribution amp.

It's not their fault that you are on the back side of a hill facing away from their broadcast tower.

Edit. You realize that Bolivar is about 180° from where an antenna for KWBM needs to be aimed...

Chuck,

What signal strength are you getting for KRBK off KWBM's transmitter in Branson?

I'm about 10 miles southwest of Ava, and with my outside antenna pointed north
towards Fordland, KRBK \ KWBM comes in at 75 to 80 on my Pal DVR's signal meter.
I'm close enough to the KWBM tower that it comes in strong even though my antenna
is actually pointed away from it.

OK so I realized the coordinates I had given earlier were wrong. Google maps was mixing it up with another street name with the same name in Ozark. A much closer representation at my situation would be: 37.0316027 -93.19952269999999

With that being said, do you all think I can pick up KRBK vis KWBM stronger than how I am currently aimed?

If you're in Ozark, everything except the new KRBK SFN is east of you.

Is anyone getting KRBK 49.2 ME TV? I have rescanned and cannot get it. I am getting 49.1 just fine.

Yes, been receiving METV for a couple of weeks on all TV's. No rescans.

So far its only being broadcast through the Springfield KRBK SFN on 49.2.
It remains to be seen whether it will also be available through the KWBM signal for those of us south of Springfield.

KRBK has a total of 5 towers of their own (plus a piggyback sub-channel on a station down near Branson), one of which is in Bolivar.

You have to know where the "best" signal is likely to come from for any given location then aim your UHF antenna appropriately while avoiding the other signals.

New place!

I'm thinking about putting up an antenna and working toward re-cutting the cord at some point. Here's my Tvfool

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d5b94c2c7bb574b

Looks like I have a better shot at Springfield than I do Columbia stations. Some are 2edge so that's where I am concerned. Thanks for your advice!
post #5449 of 5449
Well, the good news is that KRBK won't be an issue...

A long as you aren't behind trees, you should be able to get it to work. Many Lake locations are pretty much SOL when it comes to antenna usage. Something like a 7698 and LNA200 should do the job.
