Thanks for the suggestion, but, according to rabbitears,, at my location, WNET is more than 70dB weaker than WYOU and well outside the main lobe of my yagi . I was wondering if the techs are working on the transition from 13 -> 12 ?
There is no tower work that needs to be done for the move to RF 12, it's going to use the existing antenna and transmission line that it diplexes with WBRE.
Even though WNET is that low under "normal" conditions, the slightest amount of atmospheric boost is enough to kill WYOU in the eastern parts of the area. It's even worse now that WNET moved to 1WTC giving them an extra 300 ft in height.
Kly, It turns out that it was a LED light in a utility room, right under the antenna, I turned off the light and wala - signal jumped into the green with steady lock - turned on the light and signal disappeared again. I think I will keep that light off as much as possible.
Since the WYOU frequency change yesterday, I am detecting a 5.4 dB reduction of WBRE's signal compared to that before the switch. WYOU's signal level is about the same as before the switch. Anyone else seeing a reduction of WBRE's signal level?
Both channels are currently at reduced power, the live bandscans in Berwick and Bethlehem showed a drop when they returned to air yesterday afternoon. A LOT of people are complaining about it on their Facebook page.
