Snow stopped so I assembled my TERK mounting bracket and attached the DC blocking side of the diplexer between a couple of short pieces of coax, with diplexer output to IN 1 on the TV44.
Went up the ladder and saw NO SNOW! It all melted off the roof. Bolted the bracket in place, pointed oh, *that way*, connected input of diplexer to Mohu Sky 60 and the coax to the house to OUT 1 on the TV44.
Scanned channels on the TV and I get everything except KRID 22. So I double checked the heading. 127 degrees. Back up the ladder and check with a compass app on my phone. Needs moved a little right, farther south.
Back down the ladder and scan channels again. 43! (But minus 7 for the 7th Day Adventist 3ABN 17.1 through 17.7.)
Have KYUU and KRID *and* OPB and CBS/KBOI. Getting all of those simultaneously with just the TV44 rarely happened. Tuning through the channels I have not yet had dropouts. Will see how it fares in due time.
Achievement Unlocked. Total $$$ spent (by me) ZERO. How it works, I don't care. The important thing is that it works.
