Title: How many OTA Channels do you have?
Post by: Hyper on February 18, 2011, 12:04:02 AM
How many OTA Channels do you have?

Me, I have 23 as of right now.  A few are repeats of course SD/HD  :D

I use a Channel Master 3000A Omni Directional Antenna

Here is what i have (so far):

2.1 WJBK-DT FOX 720p
5.1 WNEM-HD CBS 1080i
5.2 WNEM-D2 MyTv 480p
5.3 WNEM-D3 480p
6.1 WNLS-HD CBS 1080i
12.1 WJRT-HD ABC 720p
12.2 Livwell LWN 480p
12.3 WJRT-WX ABC Weather 480p
19.1 WDCQ-DT 720p
19.2 WDCQ-DT E/I 480p
19.3 WDCQ-DT Create 480p
19.4 WDCQ-DT PBS 480p
25.1 WEYI-HD NBC 720p
25.2 WEYI-HD 720p
28.1 WCMZ-28 720p
28.2 WCMZ-28 480p
28.3 WCMZ-28 Create 480p
49.1 WAQP-SP 480p
49.2 WAQP-HD TCT HD 1080i
49.3 WAQP-SD2 TCT Family 480p
66.1 WSMH-DT FOX 720p
66.2 Cool TV 480p
66.3 The Country Network TCN 480p

The CBS from Lansing (WLNS) and the FOX (WJBK) from Detroit are the farthest away, about 60-70 miles away.

Other stations from Lansing and Detroit i can not get on this antenna because their broadcast signals are too weak.

You must live in the desert/mountain part of the Country "billay" where OTA tv just cant make it over the mountains. I lived in the SW for a while and at first I couldnt believe it when I turned on the TV in the morning and the only thing I saw was snow. The repeater would fire up around 9am so we could at least see what the weather and news was....I will have to admit that it was pretty nice to have the peace and quite.

That is a lot of good tv right there!

Post a pic of your antenna if you get a chance.

I would love to see it.

There isn't much to it.  I cut 7-inches in from the bend on both ends of a coat hanger and put them back-to-back to make the "bowtie."  They are attached to a plastic hotel room key card with a screws, washers and nuts and a 75-ohm transformer is attached to the back side.  A little electrical tape acts as a minimal strain relief.  I nailed the key card to a scrap board, stuck it in the end of the pole and put it up against the side of the house.  It worked, so I never took it back down.  At the TV is a "Philips 24DB Dual-Output VHF/UHF/FM Antenna Amplifier" I found on an eBay daily deal for $8.

I am about 50 miles east of Indy.

"billay" Now I understand why you dont have any OTA channels. I spent some time at the Norris Dam near Oak Ridge and that is some of the most beautiful country Ive ever seen. I figured you might live in a mountainous region. Even the sun cant get through to the Plateau sometimes.

Post by: El_Viejo on July 31, 2011, 07:27:45 PM
I have trouble getting 59.1, (Fox) I think primarily because of trees, not all of which are mine.   Chayim, I know most of them are up there is TV alley on Township Rd., I just have trouble with 59.  If this weather would cool down some, I might be able to get in the attic and change out my 4 way splitter for a 2 way and gain some signal there.  I am at one end of a 60' house and the antenna is at the other end.  I use an amplifier to try and compensate for the splitter, but when I do get it, it is marginal.  El_Viejo

Right now we have none. With amplified rabbit ears we can get one analog channel, yes we still have one, and we used to get two others, but for now we don't have any. Maybe with the Christmas sales this year we'll probably get a new TV, and the winter project will be a gray-hoverman antenna.

I receive just over 70 Channels (including Subs) which is not to unusual in a large Metropolitan Area.  More than half of those are Foreign Language, but, I really don't watch over about nine or ten anyway.  HA, and yes, we still have one lonely Analog hanging on as well.  Too few people who would attempt to go OTA, actually take the time to do a reasonable evaluation on what they can get.  Many times, just relying on some advice they get from a R-Shack guy for a usually inadequate Indoor Antenna, or just the opposite, going overboard on the Equipment (to get everything).  Few actually know how valuable it is to ask for advice from a knowledgeable source, and waste a lot of money and time on inferior reception.

I get about 40 channels, mostly religious, sigh (bible belt).  I'd love to put a big monster antenna outside but the HOA people would go nuts.


Title: Re: How many OTA Channels do you have?
Post by: SWHouston on December 03, 2011, 01:41:05 AM
John,
Most HOA's don't like traditional Terrestrial Antennas mounted on your house, but, don't seem to mind a Sat Dish.  FYI, there are several "sneaky" type Antennas, which look a lot like Dish's, which you might get by with just fine.
.
(http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg88/SWHouston_bucket/Houston29.jpg)
.
Please understand that the above antennas may not receive all the channels which you may have available at your location, you'd need to go to...
http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29
fill out the information including the installed height of your antenna, which also can be mounted in the Attic, and determine if the antennas above may work for you.


Title: Re: How many OTA Channels do you have?
Post by: sturmey on December 04, 2011, 07:35:17 PM
I too have none. If I did have a digital tuner and a roof mounted antenna I would probably get 4 or 5 channels.
Actually I think right now I would still be able to get one analog channel, but since I don't have the roof top antenna, there really isn't any point. I did get two or three with amplified rabbit ears back before the switch to digital, but until I get a new TV it's satellite and internet for me.

Lucky you dude!

I wish i would get COZI here on OTA.

Maybe soon.


 ::tongue



Why don't you set up a KU dish aimed at 103W? I've been watching Cozi since they fired it up, and I'm north and west of you quite a ways in mid-Michigan Flint-Saginaw-Bay City DMA, that NEVER apparently broadcasts ANY good sub channels.

I wish I could get Antenna TV, at least you are close to an OTA tower for that...

Located in Southern Maine we now have access to 48 OTA channels . Get TV has been added . Spanish . & Vietnam channels added . Living beside the ocean the signals reflect and we get them from Portland to Boston and in between .

The last time I did a scan it counted 103 channels w/subs.
Actually, I don't watch but about 8/9 of those, and several have no content.
I'd give a more accurate number, but, I'd only guarantee that about 2 minutes, the way they change things up.  ::wink

Well!  I've been playing with my OTA ch's since I hooked up my Sony TV in the living room.  It is about 9 yrs old, so had to figure out a lot of things for OTA recption.  I live by Modesto, Ca., so I can get ch's from the bay aera, Sac., Montery , and Fresno aera.  I ended up with 97 dig. ch's and 1 anl ch.  These do not come in all the time, but the best time to DX is early morning.  Interesting thing is that I have noticed sat ch's like AMG and Euronews, amoung others.  Ch 24 out of
fresno has 9 sub ch's and Euronews in on one of them.  Euronews is scrambled on the sat's that I can recieve and yet it is being broadcast ota on the sub.  I am wondering how this is being done.  Jess out in California

As a kid in the 50s we had 3 OTA stations. They were  WFBM-6, WLWI-13, WTTV-4 ....Now there are 36+ OTA channels and 400-500 channels via satellite...boy how times change.

I am currently receiving 15 channels at home. Here I am using an RCA 3036 with no amp. I get:

ABC
Me TV
PBS
Create
World
PBS HD
Ion
Qubo
Ion Life
QVC
HSN
Shop
Telemundo
Exitos
1 analog channel for the local school

At the 2nd home I am receiving 16 or so channels with a little lower signal due to an attic setup where I am using a 20$ RCA amp, an Antennacraft 10 7 13 vhf antenna and a philips 40 mile uhf antenna that works quite well. The bonus channel at the 2nd home is WUTF which is in Central Massachusetts   

I am currently in the process of buying an investment property further north. This place already has an antenna. I am pretty excited about it and will post my scan results once I am able.

Don't laugh, but I only get 8. We have hills between our home and most of the broadcast towers. Thinking about putting the antenna up higher when cooler weather gets here to see if I get more. Right now it's on a 10-foot PVC pipe. I have a neighbor who has a 25-foot pole attached to the side of his house and he gets more than 50 channels.

The one thing that I have noticed is that If there are digital ch.s operating on the same "virtual" chanel but located in different [antenna] directions, there is a good chance of cross recption.  There are still a few that operate on the lower band[2 thru 13] .   I,m not sure how well the smaller uhf only antennas recieve these signals.   Anyway OTA is expanding, and the advertsing cost is a fraction of that of cable or small dish.  Also advisters can "target" the aera they want.  Jess out in California

Post by: jess73 on September 07, 2014, 05:22:23 PM
Seems like a strange group of ch's when the UHF is now from 14 thru 69. The other ch's from 70 to 83 are already used for something other than TV.  Jess out in California

Even if we wind up with just Ch 14-31, won't that leave us with 170 selections ?
Or am I wrong in thinking there's (at this time) 10 sub channels per ?

Post by: jess73 on September 10, 2014, 01:49:33 PM
So; If I understand this discusion about the FCC selling of the spectrun, eventually there will be no ch,s left.  The end of "free" TV! [another thread].  Jess out in California

I haven't seen anyone running 10 sub channels. OTA is Mpeg 2, utilizing 6 mhz of bandwidth. Running one HD and 2 SD sub channels start to show grunge on the SD and softens the HD. 10 channels may look good on a cell phone screen but not on a 40 inch TV.

You got me thinking about this, and that's not easy at my age :D
So, I did a check and you're right, most only have 8 or less

Scanned in a new one tonight:

28.3 WFTS D3 GRIT

Added it to my list above.

Not sure how long its been there, but less than a month i know that.

I scanned this in using my Linkbox 8000 HD Local, which i am using for my OTA tuner now, instead of the TV itself.

I also scanned in something weird off my OTA antenna.

At 641000 KHz i scanned in a mux of 3 channels.

Shows as:

$ Starz
$ SHO
$ Airbox

Shows encryption Nagra 1 and is black screen. But, I have never scanned in $ encryption channels on my OTA antenna ever. I dont get it.  But i can say for sure it is off my OTA antenna, this box is not connected to a sat dish at all!

Weird.

On my Linkbox Local it does not tell me the channel number but scanned in at 641000 KHz, which should be around channel 42-43.

Then a second time a couple days later scanned in at 60500, which should be channel 36-37.

Where I live, we are two channels down from when the transition from analog happened. The Total is 8.

2.1 Fox KASA 2 Albuquerque
4.1 NBC KOB 4 Albuquerque
4.2 ThisTV
5.1 PBS KNME 5 Albuquerque
5.2 VME
7.1 ABC KOAT 7 Albuquerque
7.2 Estrella TV
13.1 CBS KRQE 13 Abuquerque.

We lost 2.2 CoolTV and 33UHF which was KNME analog. It's pretty obvious why I got into FTA.

How many are using a reciever box instead of the TV tuner?  I've been using an Iview 3500 because it has a guide!  Both my TV's only have an "info" button.  Jess out in California

Checkout TV fool or Antenna web to see what you should be able to recieve in your aera, also antenna and height is important.  Some dig. ch's still are transmitted on low vhf[2-6] and you may need an old style antenna.  Most of the digital's in my recieving aera operate on uhf, however a couple still transmit on "real" ch. 2 and 3.  Jess out in California

The tuner on my TV was going bad. I went from 3 channels to 24 by getting a tuner box and then running the signal into my TV, bypassing, my TV tuner. WOW! Big improvement.

60.3 JUICE/SOAC
60.4 WTJP ENLACE
60.5 SALSA

My antenna is only 20 feet tall, I've heard that if you go above 30 or 31, you can get even more channels. I am about half-way between Birmingham and Huntsville, most of the channels I get are out of B-ham, I wonder if I could pull in some Huntsville stations if i go over 30 feet on the height?

Those external tuners with a EPG are super. Nice to know what coming up on a certain channel in the next few hours.

I have an od samsung unit from 07 or 08 that has no hdmi but a dvi port. Its so SLOW when bringing up the guide it acts up when changing from HD to SD channel. So when I get the money I will get me homeworx OTA tuner.

We have a ton here in the Houston area.  I scanned 115 channels a few minutes ago, but I can get around 122 when the low power stuff is coming in a little bit better.  Here is a list that was made a while back by someone:

I also scanned in something weird off my OTA antenna.

At 641000 KHz i scanned in a mux of 3 channels.

Shows as:

$ Starz
$ SHO
$ Airbox

Shows encryption Nagra 1 and is black screen. But, I have never scanned in $ encryption channels on my OTA antenna ever. I dont get it.  But i can say for sure it is off my OTA antenna, this box is not connected to a sat dish at all!

Weird.


 ::shocked



You can get some Starz, Showtime and Epix here in Houston over AirBox via the ION Network subs.  I think it's around $35 a month.  You guys probably know this by now.   ::grin

You are missing WFKB-LD channel 38 and WFFC-LD channel 17. The tower for both is in Saginaw, (old channel 57 building) but it's aimed towards Midland area. I pick it up fine here, and I'm North-West of Midland some miles, we are both about equal in distance to where your house is from it. Though I'm using an HDB-91x pointed right at it, and a Kitztech KT-200-COAX pre-amp.

Here's the tower for both 38 and 17, try aiming right at it:
Code:
https://goo.gl/maps/B2dgre2JR8M2ZVoJ7

38-1 = GRIT
38-2 = Court Mysteries
38-3 = LAFF
38-4 = Get Tv

WFFC-LD               MIDLAND, MI
17-1      17.1         Azteca America           
17-2      17.2        Justice Network           
17-3      17.3        Quest           
17-4      17.4        Shop LC           
17-6      17.6        Cheddar (rabbitears site reports this, but this one isn't here yet)

24-1 Azteca America  (spanish)
24.2 Infomercials? 
24.3 Infomercials?
24.5 Infomercials?

All but the Azteca channel are in English language, but i dont want to watch informercials all day lol

The MMN channel might be OK. It is SD though. I can not really figure out what this is?

07/27/2021 - My list for N.W. Arkansas using two attic antennas. I have an RCA ANT751 pointed to Faytteville and an Antennas Direct Clearstream 2 pointed north to Joplin, Missouri. I run the two coax cables down the wall into the living room to a double coaxial outlet wall plate. This lets me choose which antenna I want to use (North or South). The short piece of coax from the TV to the wallplate has a push on male coax plug. Being a TV DX'er, I use the North antenna for TV DXing. I love OTA too!

That is a pretty darn good list FTA-NWA! I see some channels there i wish i had in my market like Retro TV, Quest TV, and Action.

But i am surprised you dont get Defy and TruReal. Seems like those are the only ones missing from your list.

In Halifax, Nova Scotia we can receive 3 OTA HD channels. And that is more than many Canadians. We are too far from the U.S. border to receive any U.S. channels via OTA unlike many border cities in Canada. This is just one reason why FTA satellite is a good supplement to regular TV for those who don't want to pay for dozens of stations they don't watch via the pay cable or satellite models.

3-1: CBC (UHF 32 720p)
5-1: CTV (UHF 15 1081i)
8-1: Global (VHF 8 1080i)

I use a Clearstream 2V antenna mounted 10 feet high with Channel Master 7777 amplifier to maintain a solid picture for each channel virtually 24/7. The distance to the transmitters is only 14 miles but without the amplifier I can get dropouts at certain times of the day in some weather.

===========

At a location in Japan where we also live, we receive the 8 national TV OTA channels including NHK General and NHK Educational. That's 8 channels in greater Tokyo with a population of 37,000,000+ people. There are many other channels available via pay satellite (50 or 60 cm dish) or cable distribution systems. How many TV channels does one need?
