KDOC Not in TVFool Database?

Why is KDOC in Los Angeles missing in the TVFool database?

It's clearly broadcasting and has been for many years.

Hi jerrymc:

TV Fool has a very small staff that has not been able to keep up with Repack changes, etc. But, I just checked Rabbitears.info for the LA Market and it's there. Copy and past (sorry I'm not the most adept computer keystroke). Hope this helps.....

Kdoc (h-vhf)

Thanks.

I didn't realize KDOC moved to H-VHF (207MHz) a few months ago when KTLA moved its freq. as well.

It now makes sense that KDOC doesn't come in as well anymore, along with KABC (177MHz). So much for using 2 separate antennas.
(One for UHF and one for VHF.)

Hi jerrymc:

Yes, and for those of us who have been a bit frustrated with their previous signal strength on their UHF frequency, this change to VHF High 12, physical, with strong readings on my TV meter, 35dB plus SNR, was a welcome boon. No complaints from this Peanut Gallery since the change!

Sorry to hear about your difficulties due to your location. If you send a PM (for your privacy) to rabbit73, he has the technical background to run a location check that might help with your reception. At least it couldn't hurt and only cost you in a small amount of time. Just an idea.

Anyway, hopefully better viewing days ahead for you. All the best.....

KDOC moved from 32 to 12 during Repack Phase 2

Extract from rabbitears.info report:



You are behind a mountain for KDOC, jerry:



Your location is on the edge of the red zone of the Longley-Rice coverage map, which is the weakest listed signal strength.



Because of the directional KDOC transmitting antenna pattern, less than 38 kW out of 110 kW ERP is sent in your direction:
