Disclaimer: The ATSC distribution system under construction will also benefit the N2MO club station.
I am putting together an ATSC CATV headend to support several buildings on our clubs host site. Proposed configuration:
- 1) OTA ATSC channels via a yagi pointed at NYC
- 2) VCR on NTSC channel 3
- 3) NASA-TV via ATSC modulators (we have 3 ATSC modulators and 3 commercial satellite receivers with component and HDMI outputs)
- 4) Sony professional DVD player (it has an ATSC modulator fed via the component video output)
The intent is to avoid using cable boxes at the televisions and utilize the built-in ATSC and NTSC tuners. The ATSC modulators will output on channels not used by any of the local OTA (ATSC) station
Sanity check question: The VCR channel 3 output is 60- 66 MHZ . As far as I can tell, there is no corresponding OTA assignment in the NYC market.
