Oh, I see. Thanks very much!

CKVR signal strong

I'm noticing some strong signal on CKVR. I'm actually getting partial decode on my KROSS antenna for that channel which has never happened before. It's usually stuck at around 15 to 20% on the meter for that one. It may be just the weather. Anyways if anyone has tried before and not had much luck getting it, maybe you might want to give it a shot now. It seems to come in for a bit then fades but then seems to come back. Not sure if this is the right thread for this but couldn't think of a better one.

Most likely some tropo conditions. I had an unusually strong signal from RF6, which for me is in the same general direction as CKVR last night/early morning.

I would think that CKVR would be a regular for your area!

There was some mild tropo forecast for last night and this morning til noon.

There is also a strong storm system moving in from the southwest tonight that may cause some out of the ordinary reception issues.

Had to step out for a bit. Just got back.

Marbles_00: Yeah it looks like it has died down now. Just a bit of tropo.

ota_canuck: It is regular. However I need the K6STI yagi to snag it with enough margin to keep it regular. The KROSS has never decoded that channel before so this was its first time. I also stuck some narods on my SBGH gen2 and it's right on the edge. So it falls into periods of lost signal. I just added those the other day and have to play around with them more.

It's actually a tricky signal. Not as easy to get as you'd think. Also I have to get it from behind and 9 and 11 from the front.

Detected some co-channel earlier that caused WDWO 18 to crap out. Things have now opened up much more with some new years eve tropo this evening. Some stuff from central and west Michigan are coming in now like WTLJ RF24 which hasn't been seen here in a long time.
