Signal strong enough?

Postby leopheard » Fri Mar 15, 2019 1:52 pm

Hi all,

The weather in this part of NC is slightly overcast as storms due later, but I'm wondering if this signal strength is good for these conditions and does it seem to be too weak for the bad weather we'll probably get over the summer?

Virtual Channel 2.1 WFMY HD
Frequency 695.000 MHz
Program Number 1
Modulation Lock 8vsb
Signal Strength 42%
Signal Quality 66%
Symbol Quality 100%
Transcode Profile heavy
Streaming Rate 6.780 Mbps
Resource Lock Local IP

I've installed the antenna around 40 feet up as shown here, straight into the ground box (not a splitter) and then a coaxial straight into the HDHR Extend box.

I see you have the HD cordcutter. I one as a test antenna. I put a homemade reflector behind it to amplify the signal. You live in Greensboro. That is where I was born and lived until 18. If you are in position to block signals from one direction a reflector works wonderfully with that antenna.

Instead or in addition to the reflector get a channel master 7777hd. Awesome preamp.
