Both the RV community and the Amateur Radio community should like this one
In yesterdays post I mentioned that we were parked for the day at Lake Ontario Park in Kingston. I forgot to mention that I decided to play a bit with some HDTV reception to compare signals from my home 5km to the north to what I would receive at the park.
From my backyard (facing south) I get Global Kingston which is about 6 km to the south south east and thats it….
From Lake Ontario Park I got signal locks on 18 different stations (Global Kingston was the only Canadian station) and 17 other US stations between Watertown and Rochester NY. Between those 17 stations I managed to get ABC, CBS,NBC and Fox along with several different shopping channels and a few special interest channels.
Why the big difference?….. at home I’m blocked to the south due to a hill between me and the lake…. I did not really think it would make that much of a difference but it did….
Proving that “Location, Location, Location” comes into play in more that real estate and thats its all about the antenna (and the antenna location)
