    We now have stations on all Low VHF channels in the San Francisco Bay Area, one full power on channel 5 and four low power on the other channels.

    Smoke hindering propagation

    For the past week or so, we've been sitting in a cloud of smoke here in the San Francisco Bay Area blowing in from the Camp Fire that destroyed Paradise, CA and the surrounding area and is still burning. During this period I've noticed that signals from the Sacramento/Stockton stations...

    Guide Info Incorrect for OTA stations

    In recent weeks I've noticed that the Guide listings for several OTA stations is incorrect. Not only is the programming wrong, but the name of the channel is also wrong. It looks something took the Guide information, shuffled it and put it back in the guide in random order. Has anyone else...

    HD8200U works great!

    I had a new Winegard HD8200U antenna installed this past Friday and it's working great! I'm finding that it has a much sharper pick up range, though, compared to my old 10 element high VHF yagi and XG91 combination. A couple of degrees either way can make the difference between a perfect...

    Suggestion: Give Location in Title

    When you're mentioning updates, changes, etc. for a specific area, it would be nice to mention the call letters or the location in the title. For example, something like "10.2 ME-TV" doesn't mention the station call letters or the location, so no one knows where it is. Including "KXYZ 10.2...

    Over the air... really?

    I've been amazed in the past few weeks at how many people don't know that OTA TV exists. They know about cable and satellite TV, and now are hearing about TV via the internet, but a friend did a survey here locally in San Francisco and a large number of people didn't know that you could connect...
