Reception of DTV signals
By Anonymous ~ Posted Sat, 06/13/2009 - 8:11am
I too am totally confused. I live near the shore line in Williamson and have had no problem receiving the analog signal. I have a deep fringe antenna which is good for 50 miles. In addition I purchased an in-line 10db gain booster and still have not been able to received the digital signal from WXXI. I will say at one time early on I did get the signal, but it went away and has never returned. As I read the blog, someone wrote that they can not received the signal in Holland's Cove, but was able to get it at home. I am curious as to where in town they are located. I spoke to the folks at Sunrad in Sodus and they say they too are having difficulty getting reception. I know the signals are line of sight, but my antenna is located on a two story home. Very strange. Has anyone taken measurments to determine if the signal is making up to the northern part of Williamson/Ontario/Webster? Although I did see someone from Marion say they can not receive DTV signal either.
