ATSC 3.0 reception improvements

any hope that ATSC 3.0 will make enough reception difference for me to pick up stations NBC in particular? I can't seem to attach a picture or link to the TVFool map. 48.114633,-122.015999

Looking at the signal map from RabbitEars.info shows a poor signal level at your location for the NBC affiliate broadcasting in ATSC 3.0 on physical channel 31. Even worse than the KING-TV signal on physical channel 25.

Thank you so much for the link, I was unfamiliar with Rabbit ears King5 (NBC)on physical 25 appears to be in its final location, this is the one we are most wanting. 31 KONG (IND) is not of major interest. Also PBS on 17 KIRO (CBS) on 24, and Komo4 (ABC) on 30 would be wonderful. I believe the last time I tried to get a signal King5 was on 48 or so, KOMO was high 30s, and KIRO was around the low 30s. I have a quad bowtie that I had up at around 35 feet, but the mount wasn't robust enough and it came loose. i wasn't having sufficient success anyway, so I took it all down. I had also tried a pair of yagis as well as trying them stand alone. Is 60 db workable? I actually had my best luck pointing to a 2000' hill behind us for the reflection. It doesn't look like my stations are yet broadcasting in ATSC 3.0, is that was you see?

According to RabbitEars.com you have two physical channels broadcasting ATSC 3.0

KONG on physical channel 31 has four streams including NBC and Fox
KUNS on physical channel 24 has three streams including ABC, CBS and Univision

Just go to the Digital TV Market Listings page.
https://www.rabbitears.info/market.php

Find your market (#13 Seattle) and click on it.
It will open up and show all the stations, the ones in green are ATSC 3.0

Click on individual stations in the list and it will open up and show you the subchannels
