HD HomeRun Channel Scans


I am located at an elevation of 315 feet above sea level near the geological center of San Francisco, California.

In the scan lists you'll find the frequency and channel number shown, and "Lock" followed by "8vsb" if over the air TV reception is found on the channel.  This is followed by the Signal Strength (ss), the Siqnal to Noise Quality (snq) and Signal Error Quality (seq).  The value of "seq" is based on the number of uncorrectable digital errors detected.  Next is the unique TSID assigned to each station by the FCC, which is transmitted by the station along with the PSIP information showing program channels, virtual channels and the identification of each virtual channel.

If there is a lock but no TSID or PSIP information is shown, the signal was not strong enough or did not have sufficient quality for the information to be detected by the tuner.

Channel charts and maps are available at the Rabbit Ears website.  The scans from my receivers are sent to the Rabbit Ears website: http://www.rabbitears.info/ and are displayed on charts linked from this page and on maps on their "Live Bandscan" pages.

Note: The chart updates for my channel 0 and channel 1 are not working reliably and are updated infrequently, while the charts for channels 2 and 3 are updated several times each hour.

Channel 2:

The antennas are on a rotor, so the antennas can be pointed in any direction.
They're normally pointed at 50 degrees for Walnut Grove or 190 degrees for best Bay Area coverage.
