Title: Rochester WROC 8.1
Post by: Jorgek on September 08, 2014, 10:22 am
Coming in real solid this morning.  Its 100 miles due east.  The CM 4221 is pointing due south.  Not bad for off the side.

Usually during good tropo conditions, antenna aim won't matter too much for the Rochester stations as they bounce off Lake Ontario.

A 4 bay antenna such as the 4221 has a fairly wide beam-width as well which also helps in this case. WROC and WXXI are usually the first 2 Rochester stations to come in during tropo conditions as they are on fairly clean channels, especially WROC on RF 45. WXXI on RF 16 is a bit harder to receive though due to CHCH now using RF 15.

Being further to the east, I usually get WXXI since CHCH is still a be tricky for me to get it doesn't do that much interfering.

I was just wondering if your signal strength is quite strong from there.

In the summer time yes. This time of year I get pretty much nothing from Rochester.
