I am new to OTA, I have always used cable or satellite to watch the networks. I am moving back to D* but D* does not carry my local CBS affiliate WYMT:mad: So I decided to do some experimenting and try to receive the station myself. Since the DTV channel 12 (204-210 mhz) is close to the FM band (88-108) I decided to try using my FM network to see if it was possible for me to get the channel YES FM!
Using my Radio Shack directional FM antenna I can receive the station. The signal is showing in the normal range on my LG TV. But I am having some signal dropouts from just audio to complete signal loss only lasting for a second or 2 to several minutes. I was thinking that this from using the WRONG ANTENNA:uglyhamme So I went out today and bought a Radio Shack OTA antenna 80" Boom Length, 32-Element Antenna http://www.radioshac...oductId=2103085 I was going to install it today but 3-5 inches of snow has stopped me doing that today.
I was thinking about the very large radio tower that is on top of the mountain less than a half mile from my home which is the head-end for my local cable company also serves for a repeater site for several EMS services and FM broadcast station 100.1 FM using that tower.
So my question is:
Does transmissions from EMS or FM broadcast interfere with my DTV reception
