ATSC 1.0 vs 3.0 reception in Portland

Post by robertbaetke »

Ok, I admit I may be a bit of a Unicorn, but I didn't buy this tuner for the 4K HDR or enhanced audio. My motivation was for improved reception. ATSC 3.0 uses an entirely different modulation technique that is supposed to be more immune to multipath and weak reception. I live about 25 miles from the antenna farm and have no line of sight view of the antennas. In fact, my antenna looks through my neighbors house and trees. I have been able to get reception on all but the worst of weather days with my ATSC 1.0 tuners but when it rains, is foggy, or the wind blows ( which happens a lot this time of year ) my signals break up terribly. I am happy to report that with the same antenna and the new ATSC 3.0 tuner my reception is rock solid! It is full-on stormy here right now and my reception is perfect! I couldn't be happier. Well, thats not true. I'll be happer when PLEX works with ATSC 3.0 :-).
