I have an issue receiving KCAL 9.1. The real and virtual channels is 9. I believe a local station KZSW is overwhelming the adjacent channels. When KZSW goes offline the adjacent channels come in strong. My device is1072798. Can I find out the true signal strength of KZSW is. I am sure that it well pass 100%.
Any affordable band reject filter would adversely affect the adjacent channels. One possibility is to add a simple antenna intended to pick up only KZSW and mix it with the signal from the main antenna. Then move the KZSW antenna around to see if you can reduce its signal strength. The idea is to mix the two signals out of phase so that they cancel each other. Adjustment is tricky and there's a high probability that it won't work but it's worth a try as long as you don't have to spend much on the second antenna.
