Default The new scan April 12th 2019

For months they have been saying re-scan on April 12th. Well I did and I cant receive any channels now, ok I have tried it in good weather and cloudy ( which works better for me in my area ) Did they lower the signal strength ?

Hello, Small Engine

Your TVFool report is no longer on the TVFool server. We need a little more information before we can help you.

Please post a new TVFool report.


Your Amazon link doesn't seem to work either, but this one does if it's you:

The goal during Repack was to keep at least the same coverage area for the same population that sees the ads.

The signal power is often reduced during antenna work to protect the tower workers.

Not to be insulting, but did you scan for antenna channels, not cable channels?

Rabbit, I did rescan antenna channels. I'm on the edge at best with my location. area code 71832 or 71842 is my location. I will update my tvfool and page info soon. Correct the https://www.amazon.com/sp?seller=A3NX3UA7HD5LS1 is my feedback page, but I am not selling on Amazon anymore. Thanks for your input so far. I'm a Free TV guy all the way.

A zip code report for De Queen doesn't look very promising:

You could probably get K23HY for PBS (if it is actually on the air), but KHBS for ABC would be difficult and require special effort.

I hope your TVFool report based on your exact address looks better. If not, it will be hard to live up to your motto:
