That sounds like a big difference in power between the Bakers Mtn and Charlotte site. At any rate, my Samsung LED locked onto WHKY using my rooftop Winegard 9095P with no problem (not sure if my Winegard 9095P is grabbing the HKY or CLT site). I then tried to get the WHKY signal on my bedroom Panasonic hooked up to a Clearstream 4 in the attic, and I could *not* get the Panasonic LED to lock onto WHKY.
When I have more time tomorrow, I want to temporarily hook my Panasonic TV up to my outside Winegard. The Panasonic has a much better signal meter (which gives me real percentage numbers) versus my Samsung which only provides a graph--not very useful).
At my distance, I guess only time will tell if I can reliably see WHKY. But I do live in an excellent location on the west side of Winston for OTA TV; and I do see other CLT stations reliably (to include WMYT--but not WAXN 64.1). WBTV, WJZY, WCNC, WSOC and WBBC are typically always very strong, except in cases of severe thunderstorms. And I get these channels on both TVs, one hooked up to the outdoor Winegard and the bedroom TV is hooked up to my Clearstream 4 attic antenna). Of course, my results are not necessarily representaive of other people at this distance. I just so happen to live in a good neighborhood with no hills or other obstructions and these antennas are about 30 feet off the ground. At any rate, I am glad this tower upgrade should help a number of people in Mecklenburg; whether if proves to be reliable for me or not.
Any ideas from anyone on how my bedroom TV may be able to see WHKY? It's already hooked up to a Clearstream 4 with CM7777 in the attic; but of course I can't rotate the antenna. It is facing south/southwest, just like my outdoor Winegard.
