TV Reception ??

4 posts in this topic

Is there much for TV reception when on the lake in the Morris Point area ?, Tends to get to be a long evening sometimes after the fish stop biting in the sleeper and just can't consume and play cards like a guy used to...

I was out of Adrians Sat/Sun/Mon this weekend and set-up an antenna on the roof of my fishhouse this year. In the past I have never gotten good signal, but this year it was great(considering). I think I got 3-4 channels(some repeats), like 53, 56, 59, 61...can't remember the stations exactly, ..but I got to watch the football games sunday, hoping for the same this weekend.

Black; There are two translaters (repeaters) for a the major networks. One south of Baudette and one from Williams. They are there to cover most of Lake of the Woods, depending what area you are in. Both repeators carry all of the networks, so when you get one station, the other two will be there too. You need a UHF antenna and point it toward either repeater. They are in the fifty and low sixty UHF channels. Also there is sometimes signals from Winnepeg on the regular channels. I think they are #5 and possibly #6. You again have to point your antenna in the direction of the station. Some of the omni antennas do not have enough gain to pull them in, but dependong on conditions you get from a snowy to a clear picture. The longer the antenna the more gain. I had a 7' multi band one and it worked quite well. When the fishing get slow, start at channel 53 and rotate the antenna toward those towns. Once you get a station, slowly move the antenna back and forth for the best picture. You'll need a fully charged battery or a small generator for the bet setup.. Kaz
