Hi, Jim:

Does your tvfool report look something like this?

The transmitters at 8.1 mi are called translators (a repeater on a different frequency) to cover your area for the main transmitters that are 44 miles away.



K32DY is the translator for KOBI

K47LD is the translator for KTVL

KSYS has two transmitters, one on real channel 8 and one on real channel 42, both with the virtual channel number 8.1.

K21BG is the translator for KDRV

It is the real channel number that determines what antenna is needed.

VHF-Low, real channels 2-6
VHF-High, real channels 7-13
UHF, real channels 14-51

The virtual channel number (like 5.1) is a holdover from the analog TV days to maintain the identity of the station, and is what the TV displays.
