Re: [OOL] Problems in Warren/Bridgewater?

So why would my downstream power be 8.5 dB higher today compared to what it's been for the past year.

Even stranger is that my cable boxes have the same lousy signal strength as ever (-10 to -20 dBm). So how/why did the OOL frequencies increase in power while the TV frequencies remained the same?


Uhm

@optonline.net

Because you don't quite understand the difference between receive and transmit?

Both are receive power levels. OOL receive power levels went up by 8 dB. TV receive power levels are the same as they've always been.

P.S. I have an electrical engineering degree and have been working with radar systems for 29 years, so I have a basic understanding of this stuff.
