    There used to be at least 2 sources on the net for Contour maps - 100000watts.com and ardman.net. 100000watts has gone subscription, and ardman doesn't seem to exist anymore.

    Is there still any free access to contour maps on the net? TIA.

    Contour maps found!

    Looks like the old CDBSCGI database that used to be on Ardman.net can now be found at http://www.bsexton.com.

    Not sure what you mean by "TV contour maps" in the title of this thread, but you can
    view contour / topography maps at http://www.topozone.com.

    Getting to the entry form at this site worked fine. But any query I try returns "Page Not Found".

    The...
    A couple of questions, please. Being some 60-70 miles from both Jacksonville and Savannah, I get no usable OTA signal from any broadcast affiliate of ABC, NBC, CBS or FOX. I would like to get CBS-HD from E*, even if I have to "move" to do it.

    1.How can I locate and identify a suitable "white area to which I can "move"?
    2. What is the technical and/or regulatory difference between a "grade B" signal contour, and a "white" area?

    Any ideas or suggestions on "moving" to qualify for CBS-HD would be appreciated.

    tia

    Nick what ant are you working with? I am 40 miles north of Sav and get both Sav and Jax HD. The Sav stations CBS and NBC suck. CBS has bad audio/video sync problem and NBC is mono. ABC is not on yet and FOX is low power Go for the Jax stations. No way you will get CBSHD from E
