You are on the extreme fringe of coverage for WMFP. Note that only 143 kW out of 1000 kW ERP is sent in your direction:





You would need a high gain UHF antenna and a preamp for any chance at that.



It would probably help to tilt the front of the antenna up. The Antennas Direct 91XG and the Solid Signal HDB91X have the tilt feature. The DB8E has more gain for channel 18 with both panels aimed in the same direction, but it doesn't have a tilt adjustment; it would be a custom mod.

I see that rabbitears.info has the proposed change:

wiki also mentions it:

I will study the other NBC alternatives when I have more time.
Thanks for the suggestions. For the rabbitears link, is that just the NBC move I was referring to?
