    Yeah, decisionmark's DB is also missing our Fox station. It had been a wimpy early test transmitter (that I was actually able to get anyway) and is now a full power digital.

    Ah well, mistakes happen. :)

    I believe it when it talks about building on AntennaWeb, because it's too conservative. It tells me I should get:

    The following digital stations are available at your location.
    2.1 KCWX-DT
    14.1 KXAM-DT1
    14.2 KXAM-DT2
    62.1 KAKW-DT UNI

    First of all, there is no 14.2 any more and hasn't been for a few years. Second of all, with a good outdoor antenna solution I also get 7.1, 18.1, 18.2, 24.1, 24.2, 36.1, 42.1, 42.2, 54.1 and 62.2 with a very strong, consistent signal. And there is no 2.1 yet; KCWX isn't going digital until KENS in San Antonio gives up its signal on analog channel 5.

    It does seem to be based on very old data. I think KTLA-DT5.5 has been off for a long time.
