Wikipedia is showing that one of the Repeater/translator stations of KIRO is K26IC-D , Real current UHF channel 26.

The transmitter is in the opposite direction at about 275 degree magnetic compass direction.

To Test for reception.

Aim the XG91 antenna at about 275 degree magnetic compass direction.


Here is how to aim antennas.

Use a Real and Actual magnetic compass to aim antenna , do not trust a , cell phone , tablet and etc. compass.


Rescan for channels.

Also , Digital Tuners can develop - Digital Glitches - that are not cleared out with simple channel scans.

To clear tuner do Double Rescan.



If reception of K26IC-D is received OK.

Then leave the XG91 aimed at K26IC-D.

The reception of K26IC-D Will Be a Separate Antenna System known as antenna system #2.


Antenna system #2 and antenna system #1 , are No Connected Together.


Antenna system #1.

Install a.

CM4228HD antenna aimed at about 75 degree magnetic compass direction.

Connect a , CM7778 preamplifier.


Here are some Tuner/Tuner Recorders that connect to the antenna system and Tv.


As always , trees and tree leaves , plants and plant leaves , have a Negative Effect on Broadcast Tv Reception and so do buildings and other obstructions including your own , attic , roof , building , in the directions of reception , East North East , South , South West , West.

Some and not all Negative Effects are.

Absorbing Blocking Reception.

Multi-Path Reflecting Tv Signals Bouncing All Around.

The Best Practice for Reliable Reception is to install antennas at a location that has the least amount to no amount of obstructions of any type or kind in the directions of reception including your own , attic , roof , building.


As a Test to prove reception of antenna system #2 and antenna system#1 , connect a New continues length coax and run the coax through a open door or window direct to Tv.

Remember antenna systems #2 and #1 are not connected together.


Here are some antenna mounts that will get the antenna/s up higher. Install the , ronard(911) , 5 foot tripod antenna mount. Install the , ronard(712-50-10) , 10 foot tripod antenna mount. Measure around the chimney and use a , ronard(2212) , ronard(2218) , ronard(2224).


Light weight aluminum , Free standing , No guy wire , Lay over towers.
