This is just for fun...


I am curious to see if anyone gets more DTV channels/sub-channels than I do. You can post your results if you wish (see my attachment). I just have a RadioShack antenna in my apt. balcony; nothing special. The only channel I dont get reliably is local Spanish DTV channel.

This ain't fun ;).


How did you produce your JPEG? With HiPix, ...?


Anyway, WOW! 12 channels with added subs - here (from Portland, OR) I get 6 full with a couple of subs that do demos. The "coming stations" via Titan are:

PAX 4 KPXG-DT Nov 1 2002

PBS 19 KCKA-DT May 1 2003

TBN 45 KNMT-DT Nov 1 2002

WB 33 KWBP-DT Aug 1 2002


Obviously, I won't catch up to your reception any time soon :).

I got ADTV with no such thing - maybe I should have HiPix (or ?) and move to Menlo Park :)

Karnis, aren't some of those the same network?


Does anyone get anything nice on any of the subchannels?


I get an HD demo loop on my NBC and sometimes some decent stuff on PBS. Kinda wondering if this is a local or national thing.

Yes...but ABC in DC does not feed thru HD at this time, so I use ABC out of Baltimore. But they do run different local & syndicated stuff at various times, causing a wonderful Simpsons overload! :) PBS DC sometimes runs as many as 3 subchannels, and ABC Baltimore runs 2 subs, one 4x3 and one weather.

I'm guessing mkanet gets the same networks from different cities as well. (?)

Here is my Antenna Aim for the LA area. We have 10 channels on the air. Channel 43 (KCAL) is offline except for News and Laker Games.

Menlo Park so far wins - should I move?

East Palo Alto is right across the border from Menlo Park. The reception there should be just as good. Maybe EPA is the HDTV promised land. ;)


(Of course, reception *should* be as good or better at my home 20 miles southeast in Cupertino, but even though I'm closer to channel 12/11's transmitter, my HiPix won't recognize the signal. Analog channel 11 is ghosty and speckly, too. On my list of things to do is to add a fixed-direction roof antenna and amplifier to try to pull it in. Channel 11 is now NBC, an asinine situation that has damaged ratings for both NBC and its now-independent former local carrier, channel 4.)
