Why can't KMTP 32 move from KCNZ-CD RF 21 and do channel sharing KCNS 38 RF32 and use 32.1 instead of 38.2? KEMO-DT 50 and KTNC-DT 42 able to do channel sharing with KCNS.

It's a separate feed made for OTA stations and was what KKPX carried on 65-5 until they replaced it with Laff. It's mostly the same content as the cable and sat version, except on some mornings they provide E/I programming.

When are they going to be done with the shuffling? I noticed the changes started a few weeks ago and I am going to hold off redo my channel line up and channel logos until they are done with this. VC 16 and VC 24 are particularly bad, they just reshuffle things around again and again. It seems we still have similar secondary channels on 65 and 66 like Bounce and Grit.

The remaing duplicates of the Katz networks (Laff, Bounce, Mystery, Grit, CourtTV) will go away as their contracts expire over the next 5 years. HSN will likely be leaving KKPX this summer to make room for Scripps' two new networks that will feature programs from A&E, History, Lifetime and FYI.

The general rule is more elements = more gain (and narrower beamwidth).
Quick question -- how does the Channel Master CM 5020 have fewer elements (28 elements, Gains VHF Lo 4.5 dB, VHF Hi 10 dB, UHF 16 dB) than the CM 3020 (50 elements, Gains: VHF Lo 3.6 dB, VHF Hi 8.6 dB, UHF 9.5 dB) but has more gain?

There are lots of different ways manufacturers produce gain numbers. Is it in dBd? dBi? Does it include ground gain? Is it peak gain in each band? Average gain? Who knows since they rarely say. There are no magic antenna designs. You can only get so much gain out of so many elements. More elements equals more gain is usually true.

We must have a nice temperature inversion going this morning. Amazing signal strength and SNR from the Bay Area stations here in El Dorado Hills. Even KDTS-LD (RF14) is watchable!
