Well I see quite a lot has changed since the previous post in this thread a few years ago.
On Nov. 20th 2017 broadcast of FOX and CBS on KJNE-LD moved from channel 42 to channel 22.
We are located 17.5mi north of the transmitter, and have been receiving a good, albeit marginal, signal for several months now. However, since the switch to channel 22, our reception has become very, very spotty. Most of the time our TV shows "No Signal", but if I open up "Signal Diagnostics" from the menu, it show a SNR ratio varying wildly from about 6dB to 15dB. Before the channel change, we would have SNR of 16-17dB and holding steady.
I would like to open up some discussion of other viewers experiences in the region. Is it possible that simply the change to a lower frequency has caused the loss of signal for me? I expect my antenna has 1 or 2dB less gain at 22 than 42, but before I invest in a different antenna I would like to hear from some others.
