I can attest to this

The FCC has granted KARE/11 (Minneapolis) an upgrade from 27.1kW to 45.3kW. The station moved digital operations from channel 35 to 11 last year. A number of VHF High DTV stations have reported reception problems, though KARE's application does not mention that issue. KMSP/9, the other Twin Cities station operating on VHF High, moved its 9.2 simulcast to a subchannel of sister station WFTC/29 several months ago.

good since I have some issues with signal once in a while

Channel 9 was smart...They took the SD counterparts of 9 & 29 (the other station they own). Since 29 is digital 29 the signal is much better on 9-2 then 9-1 (but 9-1 is HD) ;)

for folks using outdoor antennas in the TC area we probably wont see much difference. I had near 100 on the DTVPal boxes before today anyways ;)

Its mainly for folks who use rabbit ears or are on the outskirts of the suburbs (like my buddy who lives in Belle Plaine). They should see a difference. Or if you are in the rural area (like at the lake but we're too far from the towers anyways so this wont help)

41 I have issues with mainly because the tower is in Big Lake so its 90 degrees off the others

Although for you in the East metro it may be easier....me in West Metro the stations are at 45 degrees but 41 is at 350 degrees. If I aim the antenna that way it works fine but then I lose signal on 4,5 and 45
