What does that link have to do with this thread?
I think this is a great thing. According to Rabbit Ears, KQML is running at the same tower height as KCMN's new but at only 10kw of power. KCMN is going to run at 15kw. Since I am able to pick up KQML at the lower power I am hoping that KCMN will come in like gangbusters.
Hey Neil, check out Post #18. In Lee's Summit, KQML is actually stronger than KCMN for some reason-
Where I live in Liberty, both KQML and KCMN have a stronger signal then KAJF?
They may be sending the signal in a directional pattern. Sounds like perhaps KQML and KCMN are directed north and east, where KAJF might be directed south. I'm not an expert, so maybe Trip can weigh in-
I never thought about that and it's a good possibility! Even before they went down in May KCMN has always had a stronger signal KAJF. I always thought it was because I live in a 2 edge area but the directional thing makes sense!!
All three are omni. Local reception conditions may vary even for stations coming out of the same antenna due to local obstructions or due to different performance of either your receive antenna or the transmit antenna at the different frequencies.
And KQML has just 3 channels at moment. Pertaining to that link like Biz TV,Youtoo America need APP to wtach them.
I think most of the stations that have to move go through a period of lower power output. And some of the low powered channels like the ones we are discussing have told me if they get bumped by the FCC they don't always have the money to make the changes. If I am reading rabbit ears right, several of the low powered stations have until June of 2020 when they are expected to be relocated. So we may see a gradual increase in their signal as they move their transmission antenna higher.
When an omnidirectional transmit antenna is side-mounted on a tower there are significant reflections from the tower. The reflections tend to create a scalloping of the pattern with deep nulls in some directions. The scalloping varies with frequency and the distance between the antenna and tower. I would not draw any conclusions when comparing two side-mounted LPTV stations.
Just wondering if KCMN 42 is dark again as I am not able to pick up a signal!
