Oops... Sorry... The link works fine for me.keeneye, that link goes to a page that requires login - can you give us the name/model number of antenna instead?
I did give that a try last week end, and it did not really change anything on the digital Mount Mansfield channels. Still can't get WFFF-DTIs your indoor antenna UHF/VHF? Would be fun to test your antenna in the Attic (Has high has you can) and compare with the result you had at the second floor.(If you have time...).
My guess is that you will see a big improvement.
Have you installed it yet? How good of a reception do you get with this antenna at your location? How strong is WFFF-DT?
Yes.Are you able to receive all digital stations from Montreal, Mansfield and Lyon mountain without rotating the antenna?
Question: I'm not sure what you mean by "co-channel". When you do a channel scan you get 44.1 in digital (FOX) but you also get an analogue station on 44, or is it a digital sub-channel like 44.2?...I get a Co-channel on 44 (Other wise I think it would have a 10/10). I tried to find from where (Another 44 analog channel) but I did not find anything.
44.1 in digital (FOX) is ok no problem it's 44 analog on which I see another channel at the same time (Look more like ghost of another channel).Question: I'm not sure what you mean by "co-channel".

What about Global? It is broadcasting at 46 in Montreal.
Are you using a PreAmp to get those results in your attic? I recall you mentioning a CM7777 from Sensuz a while back...I install my new Channel Master 4221 and a VHF antenna (Delhi ZIP-8) in my attic. The antenna are about 38' from the ground and nothing is blocking my view and elevation (Google Earth) is 175'. My tuner is an LG Fifth Generation. The antennas are join using a UHF/VHF combiner splitter (Is there a better way?).
I am in Ste-Dorothee too, just down on Bord-de-l'eau from the junction with Samson, I cannot get FOX either...That sounds strange since WETK WCAX and WPTZ are coming form EXACTLY the same location. Mountain Lake is further wo the west. I am at Samson & Bord de L'Eau and luckily have no house blocking my system, but regardless of what I do I cannot get FOX. I look forward to hearing what results you have when you hook up the preamp.
A CM4228 is very good on channels 7 to 13 VHF. A UHF-only preamp will ruin that, but a UHF/VHF preamp will give what you need.Also, to get DT channels below 13, do I need a VHF antenna or my 4228 is enough? I do not seem to be able to get a lock on channels below 12.1
Yes that's a very important point about Digital OTA. It is called "remapping" and it is done with PSIP data. The OTA Forum Knowledge Base & FAQ explains both.Remember that the digital channel number (like 5.1) is not necessarily related to the actual frequency being used... the perfect example is Ch 5 (WPTZ, NBC) which is actullay broadcasting on UHF ch 14 (but appears as 5.1 and 5.2).
I checked yesterday and it's SRC! But I cannot find from where it would be broadcast... Let's assume it's comming from the back would putting aluminum foil on the back of my CM4221 would help? I will try it this week-end see if it has any effect on anything.You maybe right it look like Adjacent Channel Interference
see fig 11-4 and 11.5 (http://www.pctinternational.com/channelmaster/prev/_pdfs/guide_AntennaInstallation.pdf) i'm experiencing both at the same time .
I was not thinking about that because 46 is so low power that it's more difficult to receive than 22 analog.
Yes, rain and snow can cause signal loss, but in the winter there is also a bit of a rise because trees have lost their leaves. In the case of Burlington stations they are booming north from a mountain valley so if a storm is moving through that valley there might be some signal changes. Generally a preamp will eliminate most of those problems....can the weather have a severe effect on UHF reception...
You could find it on www.wade-antenna.com But there's no gain chart...(Nothing usefull). Anyway I would not recommand it unless your in my situation.(Attic installation and I need Analog Low VHF for the other TV's). I would much more recommand a channel cut to VHF 13, 11 elements (There's also a 5 elements if space is a concern) you can have it at raybel they cost less than 100$ (If i remember well it's 65$ and 85$)Kro you get ABC with your VHF antenna or both, and do you also have link for that delhi cause i can't find nothing on it.
thanks i want to get ABCHD so bad
What do you mean? The CM-4221 (UHF) and the Delhi (VHF) are join together using a UFH/VHF combiner. The loss is impercetible for UHF (I did not try the VHF alone).Kro you get ABC with your VHF antenna or both
That's a good idea because it will reject local VHF signals, but if you buy a single cut antenna you might have to wait for delivery for it.I would much more recommand a channel cut to VHF 13, 11 elements
