Your tests would seem to confirm that the ch 41 antenna is working properly and delivering the planned signal coverage. Channel 41 was chosen because it would allow NBC29, Wx+, and CW29 to radiate the maximum of 15,000 watts across Augusta Co and southern Rockingham.
In April, when channel 30 begins operation from Massanutten, also at 15,000 watts, all of the Central Shenandoah Valley should receive good coverage. In Crimora, you may even receive a stronger signal from Massanutten.
Thanks for the signal reports.
