I sound so dumb compared to you guys but reading and searching for signal I found tvfool. Tvfool shows a tower 39.3 miles, with a path 2edge, and 7 for a display channel with physical channels db -16.5 for 31 and -15.7 for 39. Channel 31 has ABC (7-1) telemundo (7-2) thistv (7-3). PSIP 39 has ABC (7-1) CW (7-2) Grit (7-3). I have a wineguard 8200 deep fringe antenna with booster.
Is there a way to select which PSIP channel I wish to receive 31or 39?
As you can see this tower is approximately 40 miles away and is in a southwest direction. I presently have the antenna pointed northwest and receive ABC on PSIP 18, CBS on 34, Fox on 20, Grit 44, this 47, NBC 35, but no CW.
I haven't tried the antenna pointed that southwest but was confused with one display channel with two physical channels.
I have three towers within 40 miles, one 5 miles north has PBS, KIDS, CREATE, OETA, NBC, CBS, FOX. One 30 miles northwest with NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, IND.
My antenna is on a mast about 25 feet high.
I'm having problems receiving some channels all the time and all the channels some of the time.
Help would be very appreciated!
