Cleveland signals continue to blow torch in the London area, since my last report.
Here is a report on strongest to weakest signals from the Cleveland market you can expect to receive during any tropo related event.
5-1 WEWS RF15 ABC, This is the most reliable and typically the strongest signal to receive from this market.
3-1 WKYC RF17 NBC, this channel often lags behind channel 5 in reception strength.
61-1 WQHS RF34 UNI, this channel often follows closely behind channel 5 and is the second most reliable channel to pull
8-1 WJW RF8 FOX, you need VHF gear to roll this puppy, and even so it is so unpredicable that you never know when you ll get this.
17-1 WDLI RF49 TBN this channel comes in quite a bit now that they have moved over to this RF from there old one. Religious over tones and crummy sub channel's = waste of space IMO but might appeal to a specific group of people.
43-1 WUAB RF28 MYN co channel doninates this RF from local analog TVO transmitter. Some days if will be spotless and other days strong signal but crummy pixelation.
55-1 WBNX RF30 CW this channel often comes in but can suffer co channel for Michigan market channel with the same RF
There was no problems with the reception or quality of the picture during the game on Saturday night. Even with a weather 3-2 WX sub channel eating some band with I found the picture to be better than Sports Nets feed.
As always, your gear and equipment dictate the variation of reliabilty of reception.
