Summer has finally arrived UP on the tundra. I have been able to leave the parka in the house when I go outside and can even go out in a t-shirt except for the nasty biting flies of various types and sizes.
When the switch to digital happened, I wasn't able to get any channels. I bought a signal amplifier and that didn't help. Then I cut down a tree and I got three, channel 13, channel 13 and channel 13. The PBS channel now had three channels 13.1, 13.2, and 13.3. I cut down more trees hoping to get more channels and to get a stronger signal on the one that was coming in. Instead of getting a better signal, it now comes and goes. I probably need to raise my antenna higher as there is a hill next to my place in the direction of the TV stations' transmitter.
On the other hand, I have found a couple of new radio stations. The one from Thunder Bay, Ont. (across the big Gitchee Gummee) comes in better than the one that is only about 40 miles away.
