TV Reception

Recommended Posts

iceman55

Can anyone that was out on the pond last weekend with a TV let me know if you were able to get TV reception? We are heading up for the weekend with a battery operated TV and hope to get the Vikes on Sunday. Thanks.

I've tried it a couple different years and never pulled any stations with a portable TV. You'll have to go to a local resort bar to see the Vikes I'm afraid. I couldn't even get it on a radio.. frown.gif

Bring a good quality radio, and you should be able to pull in 790AM and get the game. Sometimes the tuners in the TV/Radio combos are not that good at pulling in weaker signals.

Added this link on edit, should be enough radio stations close to LOW for you to get the game on a radio.

A GE Superradio is a good unit, used one of those for years.

I now have a CCrane radio, and it is by far the best radio I have ever owned. The weak AM stations that thing can tune is amazing.

WE WERE ABLE TO GET THE VIKES ON THE RADIO LAST SUNDAY.

I DONT THINK YOU WILL SEE IT ON PORTABLE TVS.

WALT.

I couldn't pick up 790 last weekend in my fishhouse, but could in my pickup. The Vex was causing some interference and I believe the steel on the fish house is tough on the signal.

For those of you who have a portable satellite system (like Sirius) if you're sending a signal to your vehicle antenna, you can park close to your house and send the same signal to a portable radio in the house that's tuned to the same station in your truck. I know Sirius has all NFL games for sure. You can also listen to any other station available with your subscription. I was lucky enough to get this set up for Xmas and went to LOW the next day. It even came with a remote that allowed me to change the station without leaving the house. Worked great all three days we were fishing.

iceman, bring the tv with you. We were up last week and got abc,nbc and cbs clear as a bell. I think the queens will be on fox tho. The next day we went to red,(50 miles) and got no reception.

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
