New but odd result when very close to the transmitter

Hi Andy;

For some reason the results of the TVfool lookup has changed when very close to the station. In the past the nearby stations would be on the top of the list with the strongest signal strength. Now the signal strengths are intermixed lower on the table.

Here's an example when I typed in the street address of the common Albany, NY DTV tower: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...9c6b9d821737ce

Are you beginning to consider vertical patterns in your calculations? (which is a good thing) If so, does the FCC provide sufficient vertical pattern data for close-in calculations?
