Also TVO is still there but seems at lower power then at rf32.To receive it you need to point at Harrow is how I rec it.

Its not omni direct. like on rf32.If your pointed at Detroit you prob. wont get it.Which sucks cause most have no rotor.

@TechD stack

Ok Im on vac. this week and am experimenting to get WGTE Toledo PBS rf29.

Antenna{ Clearstream 4V w/VHF kit no amp 20ftup presently.Location east Windsor/Ford test track park area.

I was first going to move the ant. to the back of my yard where there is more open sky toward Toledo which is about 55 air miles away according to tvfool.I declined this idea bc would have taken at least 100ft of rg6 so I guessed the loss from the long run wouldnt be worth it.

I decided to get the mast pipe higher some how where it is located presently.Ive seen posted many times even 5 ft higher can help.The higher the better of coarse.

So I managed to get it up 5-7 ft higher is my estimate.Did a scan on myLG and not only got WGTE but also WNWO24 rf23 Toledo.
WNWO was iffy bc of the repack it also share the freq with WUDL LP Detroit.

Both in at 60% signal solid for the last 4 hours.My one problem is WTOL and WTVG both in weak on vhf at 34/35% bc of the crappy
vhf kit .At some time i will have to add a better vhf only antenna.But overall I really like this antenna as a UHF long distance antenna probably 3rd to the DB8e and the 91XG.

But for now Im happy to get at least 4 of the Toledo stations at my location along with our local Windsor/Detroit channels off the side of the antenna.Even through the thick follage.

Looking forward to some tropo to see if the added height will help pull in some distant DX stations in the next little while.

Hope this helped some local OTA enthusiasts with there own antennas and what we can receive here in Windsor/Essex county with free tv.

Question Signal loss in Southwestern Ontario

I have a 10 year old antenna system with a booster installing in my attic (condo rules do not permit antennas on my roof).
Over the last couple years I have been loosing signal strength and have lost WJBK 2.1 completely.
Is the age of my system to blame?

I moved your post to this thread. Please read the following welcome thread for OTA, then post your TVFool results as well as your current equipment (makes, models, etc). It may also help to describe the materials of construction of your dwelling around your antenna.
