said by WiWavelength:Ummm that's my point Einstein. These devices can make OTA signals completely unwatchable if some moron uses these devices on a TV channel in my area. Thus FORCING people here to have to pay for cable or satellite. The FCC knows this wil happen in many places. They want to kill OTA TV and thus by making it harder to view and forcing people toward pay TV services they can steal spectrum and give it at&t and Verizon. Too bad not too many can see this scam for what it's for. said by 88615298:
My point is I've seen the data bases and they are off. They fail to list most of the nashville TV channels in my area. Yes they are weak but many people can get them in with some effort. Since they are weak to begin with it wouldn't take much for this device to cause interference if someone uses a TV channel that didn't appear in the database but in fact does exist.
Camden appears to be located outside of most Nashville DT broadcasters' respective noise limited service level contours (28 dB for low VHF, 36 dB for high VHF, 41 dB for UHF). If so, I do not believe that the broadcasters (nor, by extension, the viewers) are entitled to protection from interference because Camden is out of market.
