KVOS is back but weak (40%) at the moment. No direct word from the station. Still on RF14.

So I'm in delta at 116 and 97a , people with cm4228 clones are with the cm4221 antennas are receiving kvos, PBS, Canadian CD ess3ntisky 16 charts up 1 block on 117th Nd 95th ave

I just wanna get kvos 4 ch .

a friends place at 90th ave and 121st I received 15 ch with the simple uh single dipole that used to come with vcrs and s 75ohm matching transformer. aimed it south on third second story floor came in pretty good about 50%.

Tvfool says I need to be 75' above street level , however being on s hill there is a 10 foot rise from my driveway at the north of house to fence at back of house facing south.

How do I test this so I'm not going overboard with too high of a mast and spending $1000 fir 4 channels plus obs chs?

Has anyone done a slight survey?

How did you do it?

I'm considering these:

Helium balloons, yes I watched up!

Asking neighbors to south with 3 story house to test there,

Borrowing a drone? Hoisting with that

Some kind of long long pipe maybe a 50ft. But metals are $$$ now days even a 20' pipe is expensive,

putting 10 foot pipes together from home depot would be cheaper if I knew s welder pipe clamps cost half the pipe cost for 1 clamp

Princess Auto sometimes has 4 foot x 2inch fiberglass tent pipes that fit together for cheep, I used four as a discone mast for a couple of years, not even a hint of fatigue. You could use a 10 to do a handheld survey probably by yourself just by having something heavy to hold the bottom(car wheel parked on a plate)
