Re: Can't get that blasted channel!

It seems that all of those elements are for VHF (longest element for lowest numbered VHF channel and shortest element for highest numbered VHF channel).

While the virtual channel numbers for WCBS and WNBC are 2 and 4 (which would be in the lower VHF band), their actual transmissions are on UHF channels 33 and 28.

Subaru,
if you plan on using light fine sand paper to remove any of the rust where the elements and wires are connected, when you re-assemble the antenna, i would look into using silicone to "plug-up" every nook and cranny hole on the outside cover of the antenna before you put it back outside.
you might also want to use some "primer" spray paint and spray the metal contact areas of the elements after you reassemble them to prevent any moisture buildup from rusting them again.

Ha a step ahead of you almost done with it doing the other side now, not sure why I never did use silicone on it, I guess I must of been thinking I was going to upgrade sooner but then realizing it was going to be harder.
