I am the only person in many weeks who has called stating that there is no reception.
I just was reading this topic thread about KRBK reception issues. I hadn't been on here for over a week, otherwise I would have posted a comment sooner.
KQFX 22 Columbia needs to be removed from the *interference* discussion, as they have been off the air for about a month now, due to tower structural issues. The Fox programming is currently being broadcast on sister station KMIZ 17 in the Columbia/Jefferson City market. KQFX is currently under a Request for Silence STA, which was granted July 29, 2019 and covers the period to January 29, 2020. During this time, they are completing tower reconstruction.
I believe other posters have presented suggestions on what might be causing interference.
Antennas - Antennacraft MXU59 UHF antenna & home-brew version of Antennacraft VHF Y-10-7-13 antenna @ 25'. Both antennas fed through a Channel Master 7777 30dB pre-amp.
Tuners - Zenith DTT901 converter box; AirSpy HF+ sdr; Silicon Dust HDHomerun Dual ATSC tuner, using Rabbitears autologger support.
