Tune in KUSI Channel 12, San
Diego. This is still an "analog" station and
can currently be viewed with an indoor rabbit ear
antenna, no converter box. It is broadcast
from a local Temecula Valley mountain peak up
near Deluz so reception to most of the valley is
weak or non existent. Not available in Sun City

Mount Wilson VHF/UHF
reception in Temecula Valley.
weakens the TV signal in the fringe areas of
Temecula Valley varies:
* The large distance to where the signal is
transmitted from, Mount Wilson is about 75 miles away!
* Having a nearby hill blocking the
direction toward Mount Wilson is the worst case scenario.
* Buildings and trees will absorb or block the weak signal
* The southwest side of Hancock in Murrieta avoids the large
hill running behind Clinton Keith.
* A thick low marine layer of clouds reduces or cancels good
reception of the signal.
* Sun solar flare activity can also play havoc on the
signal reception, it will peak in 2011.
* Most of the UHF signals travel south down the I-15 Freeway
* A weak signal between you and Mount Wilson can have sporadic
dropouts due to atmospheric changes.
* Weak digital signals display a pixel breakup on the screen,
no sound or worse yet complete drop out.
* Analog signals
display snow in the picture and worse, complete loss of
* Some days reception over the air will be completely
unusable or unreliable.
I cannot guarantee the results you will have in
your location. Every location has it's own
characteristics that influence reception. There
may be days the over all reception becomes more
frustrating than the expectation you had hoped
from your investment. The purpose
of my webpage is to reveal the components I have found that work the best from my own
receiving Digital UHF TV signals in the fringe
reception of Temecula Valley.

would enjoy knowing your location and posting your
