KXVA's analog service contour extended to Roscoe west of Sweetwater, but their full power digital contour doesn't make it to Sweetwater and their low power digital hits about halfway between Trent and Sweetwater (see link).http://www.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/FMTV-serv...DS1289526.html
Even after they go full power, you'll need a good high gain UHF outside antenna (CM-4228 or 91XG) on a 20 foot mast (and possibly a preamp) to pick it up. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but hey, all it takes is money.
At least you don't have to shell out the big bucks on the transmitter conversion like the station does, eh?
