    Receiver: Vip 622
    Antenna: outdoor Antennas Direct 91XG on 15 ft mast on roof with rotor peaked for Walnut Grove (Sacramento) towers.
    no preamp ( tested with channel master amp - did not help)
    1 mile from Sutro Tower but 500 ft hill near house blocks line of sight.

    Problem description:
    No signals from Sutro Tower
    KTEH-01 OTA has no guide data
    KTEH-02 OTA has no guide data
    W after network means weather channel.

    Station Name Network Guide Data

    11-01 KNTV NBCHD YES
    11-02 KNTV NBC W YES
    36-01 KICU IND YES
    36-02 KTVN KBS YES
    54-01 KTEH PBSHD NO
    54-02 KTEH V ME NO
    54-03 KTEH PBS YES

    If KTEH PBSHD had guide data I would re orient my antenna for San Jose. I'm only picking up these signals from a side lobe of the antenna pointed at Sacramento. I find the Dish HD locals more reliable than Sacramento (63 miles away, lose signal in rain or fog) and my HD locals are on 110, so Echostar 5 weak signals will not be a problem.
