Marietta GA WPXA 31 WATC 41 Missing.. WHY HEADINGS DIFF FROM ANTENNAPOINT?
 
HI Foks,
I have earlier printout which correctly showed WPXA ION TV AT 345 DEGREES AND 27.4 NM AT MY LOCATION, WHICH I RECEIVE EASILY WITH SMALL YAGI IN THAT DIRECTION. ALSO, WATC DT AT SY 21 DEGREES MAGNETIC WITH SIGNAL STRENGTH OF 53.5. THEY ARE BOTH COMPLETELY MISSING FROM PLOT, AS WELL AS A COUPLE OF OTHER MINOR STATIONS. THESE BOTH GET A LOT OF VIEWING AT OUR HOME. WE INSTALLED A SECOND ANTENNA TO AIM AT WPXA ION WITH SPLITTER, BECAUSE IT IS ALMOST 180 DEGREES FROM MOST OF THE REST OF THE ATLANTA BASED STATIONS, AND THE BACK SIGNAL FROM OUR CM4228HD COULD NOT QUITE PULL THE SIGNAL FROM 27 MILES, OVER HILLS AND PAST HUGE POWER LINES. SIMPLE RCA ANT751 YAGI DOES THE TRICK FOR WPXA ION.

ANOTHER QUESTION: WHY ARE NEARLY ALL OF MY MAGNETIC AND TRUE HEADINGS 15 DEGREES HIGHER THAN THOSE SHOWN ON ANTENNAS DIRECT'S ANTENNAPOINT SYSTEM?
THANKS FOR A VERY HELPFUL WEBSITE.

Please read thread in the main reception forum regarding the problems with the current database.

It looks like someone changed the headings on antennapoint.com. I just got them to add the word "True" last month, and now it's screwed up again, they just changed the heading to "Magnetic" without doing any math. Hoo-boy...
