In my situation even though the Walnut Grove signals vary widely in signal strength, all are strong enough to produce a signal quality of 100% but the reality is they run 70 to 90% because of varying degrees of multipath.
I'm wondering if this is your situation or if there's something peculiar just to KPIX?
What's your antenna?
I cant really determine what a strong signal is. 75 is not strong if compared to pbs out of Cotati,
The signal from Cotati is always 100 strength and quality.
But most of my stations from sutro normally run around 70 - 80 strength. So I guess 75 is good.
I use the newer version of a cm4228. I have a separate vhf antenna for 7 and 11.
You question about signal strength are hard to answer. With ktvu I can have a signal strength of 65 yet the signal quality is still around 80. I never lose ktvu signal. Never.
Kpix is a different animal. Signal strength shows around 80, but the signal quality fluctuates between 55 and 75 constantly. Anything below 55 (quality) and the picture start to break up.
I have tried moving the antennas around in a 5-6 for area, but nothing seemed to help.
I have not tried the other side of the house, but I guess I could?
