being shipped post-DTV cutover They were ordered in October of 2009.
Channels 15, 20, and 24:
Channels 23, and 26:
(Note: Channels 24 and 30 are
approximately 75 degrees off axis. The visible signal is an indication of side
lobe response only.)
Channels 30 and 33:
Channels 44, 47, 49, and 51:
The Channel Master CM-4228 has as much as 4 dB better
sensitivity than the HD-8800. Only at the
highest channels measured does the HD-8800 show a slight (1 dB) advantage.
For fringe area scenarios, the CM-4228 seem preferable.
