PLEASE NOTE: THIS INFORMATION AND THE TABLE ARE CONSTANTLY BEING UPDATED AS THE DIGITAL CHANGE-OVER APPROACHES.
Hill - Approximately 280 Degrees C.W. Magnetic North
** Web Hill - Approximately 200 Degrees C.W.
*** Toquerville - Approximately 50 Degrees C.W.
1 Note - Digital Channels are/will be
broadcast on some of the old analog channels.
This is relevant because any particular digital channel, from any
direction, could be on any of the old analog channels, but may appear on your
local set or ATSC/QAM tuner by the same designator such as 5.1 etc.
add the same digital channel number, such as “5.1” for each of the old analog
channels the ATSC/QAM tuner finds a digital signal for 5.1 on. That would result in the possibility of
multiple entries for 5.1, each from a separate source or translator
broadcasting on a different RF analog channel.
modern ATSC/QAM Tuner TV or DTV converter may then display two or more entries
for some of digital channels, such as multiple 5.1 channels, but again, each
coming from a separate RF frequency. Not
each digital entry will have a signal, or will have the same quality signal as
the antenna direction is changed between different transmitter/repeater sites
as shown above.
newer ATSC/QAM Tuners in flat panel sets, as well as some Digital Converter
Boxes, such as The Dish Network TR-40 will indicate the Digital Channel number
as well as the old analog channel the digital signal is currently being received
3 Note - No Signal
2 Note - Apparent Signal Quality may be
poor from Master Station and not local Signal Strength
4 Reference Test Configuration
& Distribution System:
a) Mid-High Gain VHF/UHF Broad-Band Log Periodic
TV Broadcast Reception Antenna.
b) Channel Master Preamp 5’ from antenna
c) -30 dB Jerrold tap-point for test television
tuner at Preamp output.
First distribution amplifier input approximately 80’ downstream from preamp
First distribution amplifier output split 3-ways:
i) First Output
Port passively split
two-ways; feeding 2 sets within <20’.
Second Output Port actively split & amplified two-ways; feeding 2 sets @ >50’.
Third Output Port
actively split & amplified 5-ways; feeding 5 sets @ >75’
5 RG-6 / 75 ohm low-loss RF cable.
6 All measurements and values are approximate.
7 Measurements presented are taken with a reference or base
