Experiments postponed for today due to snow. Not getting on that slick membrane roof with snow on it. Even tough there's a huge pile of snow below the edge, it's not that soft and the drop is pretty far.

Chicken! Come on. A REAL man'd do it. Just make sure someone's catching it all on video to put on YouTube should you faceplant.

(kidding, obviously. Get back to us when you can. Even if it's June)

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

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.
