I'm told that this is the date that software references for date functions.
At our studio, as luck would have it, the box we've been using can't quite correct for the multipath and KRON cuts out and KBHK can't be received at all. We share the same transmitting antenna. With the new box, no problem. All the stations lock up solid.
There is an on-screen signal level indicator that indicates the corrected carrier to noise ratio. That is the C/N after the signal has been equalized. A 100 corresponds to a 27 dB or better C/N. DTV threshold is an indication of 40. Below that the receiver squelches.
This receiver has all the electronics for DSS and puts out HD video, S video, and NTSC as well as signal on Ch 3/4. There are two antenna inputs.
As salty Mike Quinn, self styled "junkman", once put it to me: "Trumbull, if you got it for free and sold it for $2, you'd lose money." I once asked Mike the price of a transformer. He asked me, "How many do you want?" When I said, "One", he turned his back and walked away.
I was looking for some information on cameras. One manufacturers' net site featured product pictures and a brief paragraph. The other had that plus the full specs. When looking up a different product I found a site that had everything but the phone number of the sales office. Are we unclear on the concept or what?
For those interested in massive tomes, the PDF file format has been very helpful. But even with a high speed connection, don't expect your computer and printer to handle a 90 page document in one session. Try it in 10 page chunks instead.
