There is a TV channel called Qubo. Is supposedly transmitting from around 60 miles Melbourne FL (I'm in Orlando), on the digital channel "56.2".
I "discover" this channel by accident when trying to improve my TV reception in the living room, I combined 3 cheap indoor antennas, hooked them up to an amplifier and voila, I discover Qubo after the first "channel scan".
It's a kids channel and my kido's LOVE it. But reception is very poor and the picture stops all the time.
Being a DIY'rselfer, I tried to do a "coat hanger" antenna like this guy shows on this video.
I ended up with kinda a monstrosity (pics will follow tomorrow) that picks up most channels but no Qubo. I have 42 effin' elements in different sizes. As I added different sized elements, different channels started to show up.
As of now, I'm still having trouble with the ones in the 40-50 range... And of course, Qubo on 56.2
I KNOW there are some really bored engineers out there. If you could please figure out what size do I need to cut the elements for better reception of the 56.2 I would appreciate it lots lots lots.
I don't even know what is the Mhz I'm hunting for... but I desperately want to receive this Qubo channel.
