Bargains on Used UHF Transmitters?

After that station makes the digital switchover next week, it will then start broadcasting digital signals on […]

New HD Basic Channels – Suddenlink in Stillwater

I stumbled across a legal notice in the Stillwater NewsPress a few days ago that said Stilllwater Suddenlink subscribers would soon be getting 3 more HD channels in the HD Basic Tier: TLC, Discovery, and Animal Planet. I’ve forgotten the exact date but I’m pretty sure this change takes effect on 4 March 2009. Cool. […]

Question for Cox HD Users

I would like to get input from those who have been using Cox for HD service in the metro areas of Oklahoma. I ask because Cox HD service is coming to Stillwater (and several other smaller cities in OK) soon and I would like to read about your experiences.

Where is the HD coverage of the actual Olympic competition?

Am I the only one annoyed about this? I went to some trouble to get a high def TV installed in the master bedroom with an OTA signal fed to it so I could watch KFOR in OKC and see the actual athletic events (diving, swimming, gymnastics, etc.) in high def–not watch the opening ceremonies […]

A Question About Signal Strength Meters

I’ve come to the conclusion that signal strength indications from my Dish receiver are rather suspect and I’m wondering if that’s true only for my receiver or if everyone else experiences the same sort of thing.

How Much Signal Lost with Attic Mount and/or Splitter?

Does anyone have any reliable info (or can someone point me to a web site with some reliable info) on how much loss of over-the-air (OTA) signal one may expect when mounting a UHF/VHF antenna inside the attic of a house as opposed to the same antenna on top of a pole outside the house?

Missouri at Kansas Basketball on ESPNHD?

I’ve been checking in periodically with the Missouri at Kansas basketball game tonight on ESPNHD. It sure doesn’t look like a high definition telecast to me. It looks like standard definition.

?? for board administrator

I, like almost anyone else who uses an over-the-air (OTA) antenna, often see noticeable fluctuations in signal strength for the area TV stations.
