Now it looks like all three are going to move on Friday.

I'm in Gretna for a few days and checking out the state of local TV and I have to say KFXL's picture quality is beautiful with no subchannels and 15 Mbps bandwidth. Comparing to KPTM the quality difference is noticeable, even as KFXL seems to be delayed a few seconds behind KPTM. I haven't seen an OTA picture that nice in quite a while. Must be nice for sports.

In the St. Louis area, where I live now (was in Omaha until 2013 and I still follow this thread since I visit periodically) every major network affiliate has at least two subchannels in addition to the main program and a couple have three and so naturally the OTA PQ has ended up looking soft. Same goes for mid-Missouri and Kansas City (haven't watched St. Joe channels in a while).

Have to also say WOWT's HD picture isn't looking too good with 4 subchannels compared to what I remember years back when it was just WOWT-HD and 62O.

both stations submitted a request today to move during phase 4 due to " circumstances outside of its control"

They are requesting a 2 week extension

Makes sense in that neither station seems to have been promoting a rescan date at all recently. KMTV has a crawl across the bottom of the screen.

KMTV changed frequencies on 6/21, per their announcements.

You need to rescan.

Looks like time to rescan again.
Lost KPTM 42, rescanned and its all back on the new channels.

Also did KOLN just add H&I to a sub channel?
No guide data yet for me but I do see it.
Again rescan to get it.

KAJS channel 33 (think it is located between lincoln and omaha equally)

Did this channel just get turned on? It is coming in VERY strong in Omaha.
It was reported on this site in 2016 that it was coming to Omaha and Lincoln.
It was reported here in the 02-24-2016 post at 10:38pm

Any Ideas what it will be, seems to have a spanish channel on 33.1 and on 33.2 and 33.3 infomercial placeholder channels

http://rabbitears.info/market.php?re...n=kajs#station

right now its off the air but they have a construction permit for 15kw looks like about 1/2 way between Omaha and Lincoln
http://rabbitears.info/contour.php?appid=2001950&map=Y
It shows Bounce on the -2

Update
They must still be testing
Looks like today still at the higher power but all three sub channels just show a black screen so if you rescan nothing it detected.

I do see the bounce dot com still shows this channel will have bounce on 32.2

I did see last night that spanish channel was on 32.1 (33.1) . Azteca

KAJS is broadcasting today.
It has the tower between Lincoln and Omaha so everyone can get it.

Problem is they do not show anything useful.

33.1 The Spanish channel that is one of the lowest rated in the country (no one watches it).
33.2 InfoMercials all day long
33.3 Even more Infomercial all day long.

The original plan was to have BOUNCE TV on 33.2 but rumor is the company cant afford the distribution rights
New plan is is to run InfoMercials all day long to help pay for the station, then later add more Diginet networks like Bounce.
The joke is . . . please go watch them and buy something on the infomercials
I would love to see WeatherNation on one of them my self.

Azteca is owned by HC2 Holdings
Guess who owns/runs KAJS? Yuuuup HC2 holdings

Hence the reason its on there

unless its a direct feed like satellite is you dont want it OTA. They use the same 2 or 3 segments for hours on end. What good is showing a tornado coming at 7:35PM when its 8:05 right now?

Here is a large list of possible Diginets or sub channels that a station can add.
Some are already taken.

I hope they at least one or two some day to replace the InfoMercial channels, soooo boring.

Who does antenna installations in Omaha? Anyone know of any? More importantly, who can recommend anyone that does a reputable job of this and is not obscenely expensive?

Dish Network Does it and is cheap.
They already have the trucks and ladders to do SAT so they will do Antennas also as some use SLING and not Dish.
Lots of good reviews out there on the cord cutters web sites (search google).

Filter? for blanking out channels when combining antennae

I'm not even sure how to ask the question. A couple years ago when I was thinking about going to an outdoor antenna I came across a product for filtering out or cancelling a channel when you are going to multiple antennae.

I am thinking about going to one antenna for the channels that are relatively close to me, about 7 miles in Omaha. I will point that antenna southwest and will be on the south side of my house. Then I am going to point another antenna on the north side of my house and pointed towards Sioux City. Those towers are about 70 to 80 miles. (When I had my current attic antenna pointed north I could actually get them.)

But as I understood it at the time, when combining antennae, there was some sort of filter or gate one has to use to block channels that one doesn't want that may interfere with channels one does want. My main reason for going to the additional antenna is to get the NFC north games that the FOX affiliate carries that our local one doesn't.

So does anyone have any idea what I am talking about because I sure don't? I don't know if it is in the combiner or somewhere else in the signal chain. At the time I actuaally corresponded with a guy that makes these and he sent me a quote for one that would block channels except that FOX broadcast station. Unfortunately, I didn't order it and now, of course, I can't find that email.

Thanks to anyone that can decipher what I am rambling about.

Hello, matonanjin. I know what you are talking about.

Would that be KPTH?

Do you want just Fox from the north?

There are several ways to solve the problem.

Please post a TVFool report and/or a rabbitears.info signal report so that we can help you.

Yes, KPTH, station 30 on the attached TV Fool Report, at least that is the main motivation for doing this. It would possibly be interesting to see what the other Sioux City stations are putting out on occasion . Those are the stations at about 82 miles distance to the north.

The whole point of my post was to find this product that will block channels that are close, in frequency not distance, that may interfere when one combines antennae.

Here is the TV Fool Report: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...903808c8d69004

Curiously, our local CBS channel doesn't show up on this. We watch it all the time. Oh well, unrelated to this thread.

Thanks for the offer to help.

Thank you for the TVFool report. TVFool is using a database with many errors to generate reports. Their small staff isn't able to correct the errors especially with so many channel changes from Repack by the FCC.

Here is a report from rabbitears.info that should be more accurate:
https://www.rabbitears.info/searchma...study_id=23827

This is an extract from that report:



The device you are thinking of is made by Tin Lee Electronics. You mentioned it in one of your earlier posts.

Go Bears! I have an attic antenna (91XG Unidirectional Ultra Long Range DTV ) that when pointed north will get that Sioux City channel (and all the other Sioux City channels.) So I am going to mount two antennae on my roof. One on the south side for Omaha and Lincoln and then one on the north side for Sioux City. Then I will combine them with the TinLee combiner.
AC-7 Single Channel Injector

http://www.tinlee.com/PDF/AC7-custom...kup%20Info.pdf

It must be ordered for the real channel you want. Fortunately, KPTH has already moved to real channel 30, and should be staying there. The filter is expensive (well over $100). It is designed to pass channel 30 from your north antenna and combine it with the channels from your south antenna. There will be a small insertion loss which will make channel 30 weaker.
http://www.tinlee.com/MATV_headend.p...IGNALINJECTORS
Quote:
Antenna Signal Injectors
AC7-Series
Single Channel Injectors, join a single channel antenna with a broadband antenna or separate one channel from a broadband antenna. Model AC7 is available in Indoor and Outdoor enclosures. This three port device consists of:
Single channel input (bandpass) which provides 20dB rejection at: ±8 MHz (VHF), ±18 MHz (UHF). Insertion loss: 2.5-3.5 dB
Broadband All-Channel Input (bandstop) which reduces signal overlap between the single channel input and the broadband input. Rejection: 15dB. 3dB points: ±8 MHz (VHF), ±18 MHz (UHF)
Output (common or combined output). Passband: 40 to 860 MHz, thru-loss: 1dB
This is the Repack plan for Sioux City that shows the channel changes. Since they are listed as Phase 1, they are already done:
https://www.rabbitears.info/repackch...=&lss=&status=

If you want to see what your 91XG antenna will get from the north, you can hold off on the custom Tin Lee filter.

If you find that you really want more than Fox from Sioux City, it gets a little more complicated. You can use an A/B switch to select which antenna you want to use. If your TV isn't able to add a channel after scan, you will have to rescan every time you switch antennas.

To avoid the rescan, you can connect the south antenna to the antenna input of the TV and connect the north antenna to a separate tuner like the Channel Master 7004 converter box. Then connect the output of the 7004 to the HDMI input of the TV. Just switch inputs on the TV to select the other antenna.

Wow, rabbit, thank you for that very helpful post. Embarrassingly, you even found my post describing the product I was trying to find!
I'm not sure exactly what I am going to do next. The antenna in my attic is now pointed back south to get the Omaha channels. It works well for that. Due to health/back/mobility issues it is no small feat for me to get up there to redirect it. But as mentioned, a couple years ago when I had it pointed north, I did get it to pickup Sioux City. I suspect my success in getting Sioux City is going to be dependent on weather. So maybe a couple antennae in the attic will work?

If not, putting a couple antenna on the roof, one south, one north, is going to take considerable domestic p/r work.

I need to think more on this. Thanks again.

Actually, I think I do know next step is. I'm going to (ultimately) use my existing antenna in the attic to get the Sioux City station(s). And to do this I will , ultimately, come back here and ask about preamplifiers and other things I have no clue about.

But before changing the existing antenna over the north, for Sioux City, I need to replace it to get my local channels I'm getting with it now. Those 4 close local channels (Omaha- (ABC-20, CBS-, NBC-22, PBS) 7miles) and the not quite so close ones (FOX-26, CW-15) 24 miles). I have attached the TVFool report. Also is the link to my RabbitEars report.

My question is, since these main 4 channels in the SE are so close, I can probably point the new antenna at the other 2 and get them all. I'm getting them all now! But the further 2 channels are southwest from me. The Lincoln channels are also SW almost identical heading and would be fun get them as well. But that's of lesser importance.

So, finally, my question is what antenna should I get for may attic for these local stations? And where is a reliable source to purchase one? Since it's going in the attic it can't be too large. And I'll need to take it through the small opening in the ceiling to get it into the attic and then probably assemble it. And since I'm an old, nearly disabled, grumpy guy I want minimal assembly. In making your suggestion(s) cost is not an important consideration. I'm going to, hopefully, put it up there one time so I want to get a good one.


Your recommendations are appreciated.
