I know, The US Virgin Island is very close 8 miles away and I can get cell reception from Cingular with my Cingular cell at certain locations. Can clearly see it from my sister house.

Will be sending down a regular vhf/ufh antenna so my brother in law can get station from the Us Virgin Island, they have satellite tv at their house. San Juan much further away a good 80-100 miles away.

I just check the weather and see its cold up there. Damm I know Iam wicked, sorry bit it's now sunny and low 80's.

Here a view from my sisiter house over looking the bay.


Sorry for the off topic but I did mention sending down antenna for a setup. No HD ota transmission around here.

Default There is HD OTA in the US Virgin Island

Did a search and came up with this. When I get back going to send my sister a Channel master vhf/uhf antenna and proper preamp and splitters.

Seems the 4 hd are bring broadcasted in uhf.

Its only 8 - 10 miles away. Here a shot using my 10x optical zoom on the camera from her balcony.


Stations that are being brocasted.

No Nbc or Fox in digital HD and that's where NFL is.

Imagine CW got a ota hd transmitter not not the two big stations. Maybe this list I got on the web is outdated ?

Iam in the British Virgin Island and the US Virgin Island is no more than 10 miles away.

In the guest bedroom hook up 48" of speaker wire and was able to pull in 4 channels from the US Virgin Island.

Here is Nbc a bit fuzzy but not bad for speaker wires.


The Nbc is analog but they promote the HD logo.


Cant wait for the channel master antenna results,my sister wants me down again in Jan or Feb so Iam giving her the tools compression ends, cable stripper, cable etc..

Will be sending down a channel master cross fire series to her with a vhf/uhf preamp and diplexers and Iam alsio sending down a 3x4 multi switch as she has 3 satellite receivers here and 4 tv's.

Default Miami ota results with 4228

Was in Miami for a few days and a year ago told my brother about getting a 4228. He had a small rca ota antenna that worked ok.

All local ota broadcast from Miramar great for local residents as they do not need rotors.

My brother had his coworker setup a killer wall mount. Over engineer is the word. He used a 2.5"pole with a custom heavy duty wall bracket. I asked my brother you mounted the antenna yet he said no but he did the mount.

So this morining around 8am(nice weather sunny) connected the 4228 his cable ub is about 75'.

Oh no elevation is not too good just enough to clear the roof is that palm trees.

Mount:




The view where the antenna points oh nooooo....


Have faith in a 4228, not to dispair I told him to get a 5 ft extension. The pole he used can add a coupler and screw another pole in..

Default Signal Strength

All uhf broadcasting stations comes in no less than 92 to 94% signal strength on his Jvc tv.

Nbc example,


Hmm what Vhf HD can a 4228 pull in.
WPLG(Abc) broadcast on Vhf 9


Signal strength


Amazing results, sorry about the quality of the photos they were taking with my Mot Q9h.

Even Fox that broadcast on Vhf 8 comes in with a signal strength of 65-69 on his tv. He will raise the antenna higher maybe I will have to come back down early next year to do it

Default OTA channels in the Bahamas

My local cable provider has placed 6 digital channels over the air
They are 12.1 thru 12.6.
If I let my BEV 9200 search for local channels nothing is found but if I manually add channels (choosing digital option and setting channel at 12 I get a not locked signal strength of 73%. Is there anything that I can do to see these channels?
I am running a dual LNB dish looking at 91 only without a switch and using an analog TV connected to TV2 output and with shared view enabled.
