Maryland Public Broadcasting missing, couple of phase 4 repack updates

Greetings. A recent TV Fool analysis omitted all of the various Maryland Public Television broadcasts. Both WMPT and WMPB should have been included in my result. Link to analysis here
Also, post-phase 4 repack:
WETA from Washington DC is now broadcasting on RF31 (was 27 before ).
WRC from Washington DC is now broadcasting on RF 34 (was 48 before)

Cheers!

Hello, Mike

Interesting TVFool report. The signals are strong enough to cause oveload.

The TVFool staff is very small; not able to keep up with the changes, especially with Repack by the FCC.

So, the database used to generate reports has many errors.

A report from rabbitears.info is more accurate:

Thanks for the reply. Indeed, Baltimore's TV Hill is a short distance away with absolutely no obstructions. But it's nothing that an eight-way splitter and some attenuation won't resolve. To receive other stations, we use antennas with high side rejection to avoid issues.
Thanks for the rabbitears report - I forgot that this was an option.
Cheers!

What kind of antennas are those?

Thanks!
