Is next month still the schedule for the WHKY work in Charlotte and Baker's Mountain and how soon after that can we expect to see the increased signal?

I was wondering the same thing. If I see WHKY in the Fall, it will be the first time. But based on the discussions back in June, it looks promising. Perhaps tesla-engineer (Tom) can give us an update soon.

Anybody tried Mohu antenna? Since it is optimized for UHF, should do well in Charlotte area. Just curious, as it has gotten good reviews elsewhere.

I use a Double Bay Gray Hoverman that I built myself. I live in Mocksville, and I get both Greensboro and Charlotte, with it pointed towards Charlotte. It is barely above my roof line at 30ft (on a ham tower )... but it would have done just as good mounted on top of the house.

TVFool says I am 50 miles or so from either location. I guess the side lobe was big enough to pick up Greensboro, and the slight lobe in the back was strong enough to pick up Sauratown Mountain for WXII...

I believe you do need an antenna to recieve Charlotte channels in Mocksville, as I think cable/sat only carries the Greensboro locals there. Years ago they also carried Clt but eventually dropped those stations. I remember there was some protest at the time. Another location where OTA is a good option.

You would be seeing 4 Harris transmitters. Water cooled IOTs. Can make full power with 2 transmitter down.

Charlotte is smaller solid state transmitter R&S 2KW TPO for 18KW ERP (Also 400 watt backup TX)

Hickory could make 80 KW need 32KW TPO (Transmitter Power Output) for 950KW ERP

Also Baker Mt Site is the first "Charlotte Market" transmitter site built for just digital TV.

Wow, very impressive. I'd heard of three tube setups for digital, but not four-tube setups.

Should I expect to start to glow if I stand too close?

I haven't watch a lot of TV this weekend. However, I've noticed for the past 3 days that the 9-7 and 64-7 streams from China Grove have no audio. The video is fine.

The mohu isn't a miracle worker, but it's definitely been the best indoor antenna i've tried personally. Also, it's made in Raleigh, so I felt good about supporting a local business.

Davie County viewers are allowed to watch WSOC on Direct TV, under the 'significantly viewed rules'. It looks like Dish and TWC do not currently offer any locals outside of the Greensboro DMA to Davie County residents.

Of course, most people in Davie County who want access to out of market locals would probably do far better using a mid/long range antenna. At this distance, an antenna potentially opens up access to many more of the CLT locals.

I live off Harris Houston and get pretty much everything including 30.1 from SC. Still need to play around and try for some channels to the north. I am using a DB4 attached to the eave at around 25' up.

Noooooo, but I can recall backing up your driveway across your back yard to reach your pole one afternoon. .860 QR cable as feeder with a hot tap works well for you....

Hi all-

I bought a mohu antenna out of curiosity. I live between Gastonia and Charlotte. I'm cheating with mine a bit by using a CM7777 preamp mounted in the attic along with the antenna facing NE/SW. Using a Mac and an EyeTV tuner, I find that all local stations except for ch. 55 is better than 90 percent, even WTVI and SCETV. For some reason though, tv55 on the Dallas tower is fubar. The antenna pattern is either screwed up or something coming out of that transmitter is not what it should be. And I can see the tower farm through the trees! Anyway, I find that I am now receiving WLOS DT-13 on Pisgah but not WSPA DT-7. That one is also a hopeless cause. WYFF on Caesar's Head is gettin' it too, with a steady 50-60% signal. That's very acceptable! I was *hoping* with it facing NE that I might snag one or two of the Triad's stations (WFMY, WGHP) but nope. Ain't gonna happen, at least not from my location.

Bottom line is that it's a reliable product. It works just as it's advertised. It is certainly not deep fringe by any means but for local reception hung behind a picture or shoved up behind the entertainment center, say within 30 or 40 miles of the tower sites, it's a keeper.

Well if you really want good reception of AVL/GSP channels, probably a Winegard 7696 or Antennacraft HBU44 or 55 would work, along with the CM7777 preamp. Interesting that you are getting 13 better than 7, as here in Greenville 13 is significantly weaker and problematic, whereas 7 is very strong. And as for 55, they must have a strict east-west directional pattern, as folks north and south have problems receiving that channel, such as in Hickory. But here in Gvl, I get it at a strong 10 bars most of the time, despite being at a much lower power level than WJZY and WBTV. WJZY is not as strong, but still a good 8-10. So antenna orientation as well as power level does play a role in reliable reception.

Channel 55 certainly got screwed with their digital allocation. I believe they're severely shortspaced to both the north and south. It amounts to quite a downgrade from their 5mw analog signal. Also, WHKY surely messes with their signal in the Hickory area--that will probably get worse if they ever get their new tx on line. WJZY is also shortspaced to the south (both stations have channels on the same frequency in Columbia). Ironic, considering Capitol Broadcasting was THE pioneer in digital TV. Still, I get excellent reception on both from 30 miles southeast in Indian Land, SC with a silver sensor. Skoone, have you tried the Mohu without the 7777? You might be getting too much signal on 55.

You're 100% right about WMYT, moedog. Not only did Capitol get screwed, but they've tried to fix it not once, but twice! Way back before they built 39, they tried to get their digital moved from 39 to 24, which was abandoned when WTVI got relocated from 24 to 11, but the FCC said no. (It might have been short-spacing to WUNF-25, but I don't know that for sure.) Then only a few years ago during the transition they tried to get it moved from 39 to 46, but the FCC turned that down as well, due to short-spacing to WVVA or something like that.

So it's not that WMYT wants a bad signal, the FCC just wouldn't give them anything they asked for to fix it.

A couple of comments.

If you can see the Channel 55 tower, then a CM 7777 may be your problem. I would take it off and see if you receive this station better.

I looked up the mohu antenna. If it is the one at gomohu.com, I went through their website out of curiosity and while they do have a nice website, there is a surprising lack of technical information. However to me, it looks the Moho is nothing more than a simple loop antenna (probably a wire) embedded in a sheet of plastic. If so, then the list price of $44 is making them a fortune. For this kind of cash there are much better alternatives. Also a loop antenna would be pretty useless for picking up Wspa since it is transmitting on VHF 7.

I don't know what Steve uses, but I use a Winegard HD8800 UHF only, RG-6 coax and a pre-amp from channel master.
