(There are also placeholders for Ch 28.2 - 28.4)
I had not been able pick up it's sister station CH 31.1 K31GL-D, but CH 28 has what I want.
I still need to do some more tweaking, as I now do not receive CH 34 or CH 51 with the RCA antenna.
I may put in some fresh coax to see if that helps to bring in other channels.
Someone recommended the RCA Quad Shield RG6.
If you're looking for UAN, you should know that they moved from 34.1 to 47.2 some time ago. Last I checked, 34.1 was dark, there was no 34.2, and 34.3 was only broadcasting infomercials.
KHFD/51 transmits only 5 kilowatts and is very weak at my location. They have applied to increase to 15 kilowatts, which should help if/when approved; unfortunately, last I heard the FCC had frozen all channel 51 applications.Edit:
replacing RG59 coax with RG6 will help if the cable is very long. Quad Shield RG6 is probably overkill for ordinary UHF/VHF terrestrial broadcasts, but if you plan to add a satellite dish at some point, go ahead and use Quad Shield.
