There is a new series of videos on YouTube that have been uploaded by the "Antenna Man". I've looked at what he offers and he does a really good job of explaining OTA TV and how to receive good reception. Most of his videos are 4 to 8 minutes long. He's based in eastern Pennsylvania, but what he says works anywhere, and he does a good job of explaining his subjects.

The subjects he covers are:
Ten Ways to Improve OTA TV Reception
Attic TV Antenna vs Outdoor TV Antenna
Top Three Outdoor TV Antennas
Best TV Antenna Signal Amplifiers
How To Combine Two TV Antennas
How to Ground an Outdoor TV Antenna
Get More OTA TV Channels with a Better Tuner
Connect a TV Antenna to Multiple Sets
VHF and UHF TV Antennas Explained
Recent OTA TV Reception Issues From FCC Repack
How Trees Affect OTA TV Signals
ClearStream 2MAX Indoor/Outdoor TV Antenna
Mohu Supreme Pro Antenna
Onn 150 Mile Outdoor TV Antenna Setup and Reception
Dell Computers Owner Takes TV Stations Off The Air
and more

His videos are available at this address: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...ry=antenna+man

I highly recommend the Antenna Man videos for those having OTA reception problems or who want to find out more about OTA TV.

I don't understand what DiyaTV is doing.

Move of KAAP-LD to Mt. Allison and RF 24 are still pending but as KMCE on Mt Madonna also wants RF 24 there may be a conflict, but the antenna patterns suggest not.

Seems 36.4 is transitioning from H&I to Decades. The PSIP info hasn't yet caught up. So, now we have one H&I and two Decades, instead of two H&Is and one Decades. WooHoo!


It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.

I also noticed that LATV is no longer on KTVU 2.2, only on KOFY 20.4.

I read somewhere that some new program is coming to all FOX O&O stations, so maybe it's going to be on 2.2. (I can't find the information now on what programming it's going to be.)

Fox O&Os in twelve markets, including San Francisco, will begin carrying Weigel's Decades network, starting sometime this quarter.

Antenna TV On Channel 24.2

I'm seeing the east coast feed of Antenna TV right now on Channel 24.2. The signal is very weak, so the picture and sound keep going in and out. I can receive 24.1 - Diya-TV, 24.5 - VietBay, and 24.7 - NewsNet with good strong signal, so I'm wondering if they are testing this new channel in under a lower power. Anyone else see this and or know more about what is going on?

KAAP-LD currently is on Loma Prieta, about where KNTV was decades ago. It is a low power station on RF 11 using VC 24.x.

Looking at the PSIP I see that it has changed since 7/31/2019. NewsNet which disappeared has returned. No AntennaTV.

KAAP-LD's request to be displaced from RF 11 to RF 24 is still pending for Mt. Allison. It cannot stay on RF 11 due to a station on Fremont peak after the repack there.

There is a station using RF 24 on Mt Madonna-Morgan Hill but it's antenna pattern is not directed to the North (Good for KAAP-LD). That might be where Antenna TV is coming from but I doubt it.

All KAAP sub-channels operate as one sub-divided unit of the transmitter. No different power levels. Each sub-channels may have a different configuration concerning the bandwidth assigned to each sub-channel, however.

Will the last subscriber leaving Dish Network please turn off the satellite.

KMCE, a low power station that's licensed to Monterey, transmits from Mt Madonna-Morgan Hill on channel 24. That could be the Antenna TV programming you're seeing on channel 24-2. I have no information of what the programming is on this channel as my information advisor for Monterey/Salinas for my lists can't receive it.

I don't see the channel (24.2) today or should I say this evening. This morning none of the Channel 24 KAAP-LD was no where to be found. Sometime later this afternoon the channels reappeared, but nothing broadcasting in 24.2. I still behind what I saw last night, but with having Antenna TV on low powered station like KAAP-LD is obviously nothing to get excited about. Maybe we will get lucky and they find a home somewhere like 2.2, or 4.3 or 14.3. We surely don't need 2 Get TV channels in the Bay Area.

I logged RF 24 this morning, but it wasn't KAAP or KMCE... it was KNVN, transmitting on RF 24 from Red Bluff, 173 miles away. It's the first tropo conditions I've seen this year.

All of the Walnut Grove stations are booming in today, too, both UHF and VHF.

I don't think it is possible for the power levels to differ between sub-channels on the same RF channel.

Correct!

Each HDTV may do different things when a duplicate VC is found, those persons using HDHomerun tuners and their standard software cannot receive KTVU VC 2 RF 26. So some HDTV's may merge or replace duplicate VC 24.x entries remembering the RF channels for each. Thus it appears that channels are of different quality in the VC 24.x set.

  1. Keep First
  2. Keep Last
  3. Keep Both
  4. Halt and Catch Fire

I had a HDTV that I believed would use the last option so I never did a full scan after the duplicate VCs appeared. I destroyed it before a full scan would have been needed.

I get around this problem by using old software that makes use of the same channel scans that I present at the end of the month.

KPIX Transmitter utilization change

I noted that KPIX's transmitter utilization dropped the other day. It is now ~ 83%, down from 97%.

https://sfbayatsc.koherence.com/inde...mon_channel=29

I don't understand that switching to the backup transmitter would need that done.

But sadly, RF 28 is not solid but a little better for brief short periods.

KQED in San Jose

On the [HDTV-in-SFbay] list I mentioned that KQED (KTEH, KQEH) VC 54 still had offices in San Jose and "KQED" name was on the top of a building.

(If you wonder what your pledges pay for.)

From a KTVU Weather cast, the very first time I saw that shot it was so blurry that I could not believe what I thought I saw.

The city of license for KAAP has been changed by the FCC from Santa Cruz to San Jose-Santa Clara. I guess this is in preparation for their transmitter move to Mt. Allison, although I haven't seen that approved yet.

I for one am very happy that my pledge money is helping to pay for KQED's excellent news coverage from the South Bay.

When the Knight Ridder sign was replaced with the KQED sign a few years ago, an article in the Merc explained that the major tenants in the building weren't interested in putting up a sign, so the property managers convinced KQED to do so.

I wonder if the building owners are getting a tax break for providing space for VC 54. If KQED Inc. is paying the going rate for the top two floors of a high building then the members should be upset.

------------------------
I think the people in that building are doing the programming for KQED+.

The PBS shows are delayed about the same as when KTEH was still standalone. When KQED Inc. took over KTEH the national PBS demanded that KQED describe how their programs would be used on KQED+.

The response was that the programs on KQED+ would follow the same rules that KTEH did. I think that is a tier three or four level PBS contract.

I think that KRCB has a tier four or five agreement with PBS, but that may have changed after KRCB got so many millions by agreeing to move to VHF-low.

When the repack is done we will have two PBS stations on Sutro, KPJK does not count as it terminated it's PBS agreement or we would have three. That is if the repack transmitter does not have the problem the RF 43 one currently does.

I will wait to see if I can receive KRCB VC 23 RF 5 next year from Sutro, that is if the repack plans are ever accepted by San Francisco planning department which may be a huge problem.

KRCB is begging on KPJK right now, Saturday 8/17/2019 10.40 AM as is KQED.

Speaking of KPJK.
What happened to Jazz tv 60-6 ?
Outage ? Or ?

And 61-1
Looks like a major uplink problem
Not watchable now.
That is the same as 50-2

What is this 61-1 anyways ?
Non stop infomercials & time life music cd's

PJKJAZZ VC 60.6 appears to be just a NCPM logo without any audio Sunday 8/18/2019 1:54 PM.

Larry lists 61-1 as "KQRM Infomercials". "QRM" in particular refers to human-generated interference.

I pay no attention to RF 28 as I cannot receive it most of the time. (No RAT PACK )

Until the repack is completed I have no interest in KPJK due to so many errors.

I reported years ago to KCSM that KCSM transmitter was sending no data for 14 or 21 days. They switched to their backup exciter which was also bad. Then the transmitter started sending massive errors. That will be fixed when the FCC pays for a new transmitter.

You didn't bother doing any research before writing that, did you? Not only does KQED not have either of the top two floors, it only has about 1/3 of the floor it's on. Which, btw, is the bottom floor of the building.

Bad memory, I remembered two floors and top of the building apparently both incorrectly. More and more brain cells are dying each year.

The line just below the top two floors and the sign made me think I was right.

Anyway, moving from the East side of San Jose to downtown must cost more.

If the KQED sign was part of the deal before the move then maybe it adds up.
