    Dallas/Texas Voomers Unite!

    I get CH 27 when it is rainy and overcast. Messes with the sattelite but helps CH 27.

    I think the higher the better. Sometimes they place it right along the roofline to get a "bounce" off the roof but if you are in a valley, get it up high.

    Dallas/Texas Voomers Unite!

    I e-mailed CH27 again to ask when they had plans on going full power and never have heard back. Hopefully sometime before the end of Rangers season!!!! I am thinking of splitting my antenna to the analog tuner in my TV just to get CH 27 but don't want to dillute my digital signal any. COME ON CH...

    My OTA in east Plano is great. CH 27 does not come in due to them running at lower power right now. They have a license for the full power but have not fired it up yet. They are running at 11kw and have a license for 1000kw, which is the same power as the rest of the channels around here so it...

    voom install curse Lifted

    I have nothing but high praises for Metro Tech. That is why I am perplexed when I see all the installation horror stories from other users. If Metro Tech did the whole country, there would be no problems!!!

    Land Line woes

    I am using Vonage VOIP and it dials out OK. I have had a couple successful reportbacks.

    Have you been told...? (By CSR OTA mapping not possible because FCC...)

    It is funny that Wilt has said that the next rev will be able to manual tune, it is in Beta now.

    People in the Northeast would really like a bird over the pacific. They have to point their dishes almost downward along the horizon to get to the bird. Lots of Seattle area people can't get Voom due to trees and buildings. I think that Voom should think of another bird launch sometime in the...

    Sattelite sits at 61.5 degrees. It is southeast from us, sitting over Brazil.

    Dallas/Texas Voomers Unite!

    You are further North and East than me, and probably out of the shadow of all the buildings and the Downtown Dallas footprint. That is what is so unpredictable about it, some people in Arlington, just 20 miles from the towers, are having problems but you are way further away and can get it fine.

    An amplifier will not help you with locals

    One other thing to check in your area, if your digital channels are running at full power yet. I am in the Dallas area and , luckily, we have 16 OTA channels and most of them are at their full licensed power, except CH27 here. This link shows that they are "approved" for their full power of...

    An amplifier will not help you with locals

    The normal Stealth amplifier is actually INSIDE the plastic base of the Stealth. The unit inside your house is an inline phantom power supply that provides power back up to the amp.

    CH 27 should come in OK when they finally kick up their power to full power. Don't know when. They are running at 11KW and they have a lisence to run at 1000KW. That will make them more powerful than a lot of the other stations. Just when???????????????????????????

    I had OTA problems and the installer came back out to install a larger antenna. First, he ran the 2 lines and got rid of the diplexers and my signal was much better. Channel 27 is still weak, but I hear that they are running at low power.

    I was installed in East Plano on April 10th. The guy from Metro Tech was great, was right on time and got right to work and had me up and running in no time. Very knowledgeable and friendly guy. The STB downloaded the latest software that evening and that got rid of the long channel changing...
