Nice place to live: 103 miles and LOS (heh)

Here's a nice place to live, getting channels from stations afar:

I wish I could live there, but that area is commercial and/or apartment buildings only! Darn it. heh.

And you'ld have to deal with the multipath interference created by landing and departing aircraft.

Heh... You're just down the road from me. (heh).

Well, not sure if you heard of my update to my situation to get CHAN (RF 22), and other BC stations.

Quick summary:

With my old RS VU-160, or CM 4221 or home-built M4, on occasion (such as last night and this morning), I've been able to get a picture on in this order: RF 22, 20, sometimes 26, and 43, and once-in-a blue moon RF 17.. amazing, eh? These are 107 miles away for me with NMs from -8 to -15dB... The one channel I've not gotten is RF 32 (which has a slightly better NM than RF20).. but I guess my M4 I tuned for low UHF, so maybe that's why it picks up... and RF 17 might conflict with a local LP RF 17 in Everett/Marysville just about 20 deg off center of BC (Mt Seymour)... hmm...
