    Free US channels on FTA system

    What is your antenna setup? There may be parts that can be upgraded to get better OTA reception. Do you have good antenna height? Above trees and peaks of houses? The right antenna? UHF vs VHS vs combo antenna's?

    Antenna Changes

    It may help if you could get your antenna closer to the peak of the roof. Trees and buildings will reduce the signal and can cause reflections. In general, TV signals are line of sight. Anything blocking the line of sight will reduce the signal. You could try connecting a piece of coax to the...

    How far away can you get channels nowdays with an antenna?

    I have a lot of 2 edge signals in my area. Before cable and satellite became popular, it was common to have a 40 foot to 65 foot tower with extreme fringe rated antenna and a pre-amplifier. Stations were 65 to 85 miles away. You would loose the signals some times, but for the most part, they...

    were there ever or are there such things as mini prime focus KUBand dishes?

    In my area, an offset dish tends to not accumulate as much snow as a prime focus.

    were there ever or are there such things as mini prime focus KUBand dishes?

    One of my friends who has now passed away, had a C-band dish and also a prime focus Ku dish. The Ku dish was from an early pay system he got from somebody he knew. He had a 36" dish. He never had the 36" dish hooked up. We would trade recording from my Ku band dish and his C-Band dish.

    Homemade OTA antenna

    I made a VHF CH 10 antenna a few years ago. I cut and rolled aluminum flashing for the 10 elements. It was based on an old antenna that they posted the measurements on the digital home Canada forums. Works very well and still in use. It sits on top of my tower along with an antennas direct 91XG...

    Balun Info?

    Water inside the balun will cause problems, may it be corrosion or just lower signal. The solder connections inside the balun may become bad if water has been sitting inside it. If it is not sealed, then there should be a small drain hole for the water to exit. Different baluns will have...

    New TV season to start

    Well with the end of summer, it is time once again for a line-up change to our TV schedules. We have seen over the years many of our favorite retro shows either added to the lineup or removed. Some shows are just played far too often and others only rarely seen. When I first started with...

    Will this 2-way splitter work OK for OTA?

    The arrows indicate the direction of flow of DC power from the power supply to the amplifier, not the direction of the TV signal flow..

    Will this 2-way splitter work OK for OTA?

    When you put the splitter in, your signals will be a little less than half of having no splitter. Also, it the length of coax from the power supply signal out, to the splitter and finally to the neighbours tv is a long run, you may loose too much signal for reliable reception (on that one...
