Welcome to the forum, togetrick

Thank you for the signal report; it doesn't look too promising.

According to the report I should get nothing but 2 channels.
Actually, it's more like one; I think KUFS is off the air:

It is difficult to receive signals with a Noise Margin of less than -10 dB. If you are able to receive them, you have an excellent antenna system, or your tvfool report is wrong, or they have been enhanced by Tropospheric Propagation.

What you are doing is DXing; receiving distant channels. That makes you a DXer.

Tropospheric Propagation is seasonal; enjoy it while you have it.
