Re: Local channels

HD locals are on 103s and SD are on 119. What receiver/dish do you have? Are you actually in Omaha or are you in an RV or at a camp somewhere else trying to get the Omaha locals?

Re: Local channels

You're probably outside of the Omaha spotbeam transponder coverage.

Re: Local channels

If you are not seeing signals on 103s then you are out of the Omaha HD spotbeam. Try making SD duplicates visible and then see if you can receive those. They come from 119 and the 119 spotbeams are much wider than those from 103.
