Wow, no kidding. This is the first I've heard of it.

I do see that it is a year away, so that's probably why I've heard nothing on TV about it yet.

Yup, it never comes in during the summer, even 20-30 years ago when it was analog. Digital actually helped it; it stays on longer in the spring and comes back sooner in the fall. I gain maybe a month...

Thanks for your help and comments, Joe! Hopefully the problems were just with channel 8's signal not being up to par, as you suggested.

I ordered that new housing thingy last winter. My channels were coming in fine after my last post, so the housing sat in its shipping box.

I tried aiming it a bit each way today, but it didn't make any difference, CBS is totally dead. FOX comes in fine.

Thanks for the reply. :)

I assume you are talking about the box in my last picture? When you said "replace each of the connectors," what exactly are you referring to?

All coax was new in 2011.

Yes, that's what I was thinking, as everything indoors seems to be good. I will test that end of the coax also, but how does one test the box itself?

Yes, I found out the different ways the signals act in 2008 when some of the local channels started with digital. And I learned that antenna aiming is more important with digital.

I hadn't seen those pages, interesting -- I assume my house is way over on the right behind that big hill, heh.

I had no idea what all those numbers meant.
