Ill do some testing over there after my midterms next week if someone else hasnt done it by then.
Looking forward to hearing how it goes.
I live in a suburb in the foothills of the Appalachian mountain range. My house is in the middle of my neighborhoodbasically at the lowest point elevation wise, the neighborhood's typography being something like a bowl. Most of the homes are two-story. Also in a flight path of an intl. Airportmy SDTV with a std. bunny-ears antenna occasionally flickers to the RPM of passing helicopters
. The area is also old growth forest, so the trees are a dense concentration of very large, tall trees not only around my house, but also the whole surrounding, higher-elevation area.
Been wanting to get an HDTV capture card for PC and mounting a large omnidirectional, something like a DB8, in the lofty attic, but I been waiting for the HDTV PC card tech to mature and with the BF being at least temporarily halted, I don't mind waiting some more.Very
interested to hear reports, such as yours, of areas with lots of reflections and good signal strenghts.
