Could you explain more about the path profile, and how to read it?
It looks like this when you click on the WYBN-LD callsign in your tvfool report:



Quote:
In very rough terms, the colors can be broken down as follows (not related to Antennaweb):

- White is extremely strong. Beware of signal overload on amps.
- Red-yellow-green are all quite strong. You can expect reasonable coverage with an indoor antenna.
- Cyan is where it's advisable to move the antenna up to the second floor or attic.
- Blue is where it's probably necessary to install a good antenna on the roof.
- Purple is quite weak and you really have to work at it for any chance of reception.
White is also used for no signal at all after purple. The transmitter is at the left end of the profile; your location is at the right end.
