One of the "problems" wrt the Baltimore (FOX45) station and you is that by design we must provide protection to the north (York, PA) because of interference criteria of maximization. :-(
Imagine the situation to ALL of our market if we had not maximized! (what is your ZIP?)

If Phildelphia, behind the hill, doesn't come in well, do what the Europeans do: go for the best signal source in your location. In your case, 8-VSB should be at least as good as COFDM. You're far from every transmitter, and not even in a congested location. BertYes I have pointed the parabolic UHF antenna towards Baltimore and the only difference was the Philly stations came in worse. Still no 'FOX' from either market. The goal here is to receive the Philly stations so I can get emergency messages and weather reports that apply to where I live. I don't get this information for my area from the Baltimore stations.----------------------------------------------------------------------You can UNSUBSCRIBE from the OpenDTV list in two ways:- Using the UNSUBSCRIBE command in your user configuration settings at FreeLists.org- By sending a message to: opendtv-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word unsubscribe in the subject line.
