    ^ Only 1 kW???? That could kill any DX chances at all. I never gave a thought about that.

    GACTVDX, PM your email address to me. I think you sent it to me once before but I can't find it. I think I will get you in touch directly with Eric. You have a lot of questions. I just acquired his email address and it is okay for any WTFDA member that wants to send him an email, rather than using the PM function.

    1kw transmitter output. The effective radiated power is much higher -- probably 20-30kw. Which still isn't big but not impossible. It is COFDM so more tolerant of interference than ATSC.

    1kW is pretty low, but DX does funny things. Just two nights ago I logged 2.7 kW W40CU-D from St. Petersburg. Hadn't seen the thing in years. And none of Tampa's full-powers were decoding at the time!

    And being COFDM increases the odds too. You should certainly be able to see something from the Keys, Chris.

    And I'm fine with an SD box, BTW. It's all the same to my logbook.

    To All:

    Who would like to have a standard definition (SD) Digital Multimedia Broadcast Terrestrial (DTMB-T) set-top-box?

    For now, I just want to get a rough figure count.

    If you missed my previous post, I will say it again. Cuba does not use VHF-Low band channels 2-6; don't expect to receive Es.

    If you watch this video carefully, even if you don't understand Spanish--

    ....even hi-VHF is not being considered. A UHF antenna is pictured insofar as receiving the digital picture.
