WHITE PINE TELEVISION DISTRICT TV TRANSLATORS ARE ALL FULLY DIGITAL

Since the June 2009 Digital Television Transition, the White Pine County TV District has upgraded all sites to ATSC Digital Television.
This means that you need an ATSC tuner in your television, or a set top DTV converter box for older televisions. DTV has multicasting and High Definition,
reflecting exactly the signal that viewers see in the home city of the stations re-broadcast by our translators. Most stations offer more than one program stream,
you can check with the website for the originating station or look at schedules at Titan TV for information on streams and schedules.
When tuning in a translator, use the listing above and key in the RF channel using your digital TV or set top box remote control, or use the autoscan
function to find your signal. Make sure you have the highest gain antenna possible and point it toward your preferred translator antenna site.

Our friends in Eureka, NV, at the Eureka County TV District help us bring Reno stations to White Pine County.

Reccommended Antennas

antennacraft
      colorstar RS 15-265
To receive free over the air TV in Ely, McGill, Lund and Ruth, you will need a good antenna.
You can test reception with a wire or simple rabbit ears.
 For pixel free reception, an outdoor antenna is best.

For difficult cases, the Winegard 8200U is an excellent directional high gain antenna;
Winegard HD-8200U high gain antenna



For the best reception on all channels, including the low band VHF
translators on RF channels 2 - 13 in Ruth and Lund, we recommend
the Antennacraft Colorstar HDTV/VHF/UHF/FM Antenna, available in Ely for $69.99


If you want to try a quality indoor antenna without going to the hassle of an outdoor installation
  an Indoor / Outdoor amplified panel antenna

  Our experience has been that outdoor antennas bring in a better quality signal,
To receive free over the air TV in Ely, McGill, Lund and Ruth, you will need a good antenna.
You can test reception with a wire or simple rabbit ears.
 For pixel free reception, an outdoor antenna is best.

For those looking to see free White Pine TV Translator channels, both increased height or a better antenna with more gain are the best two answers. 
Try raising your present antenna first to see what kind of results you get.  If that doesnít work, then get a better antenna.
TV Translator signals reach out reliably about 20 miles but you need an antenna with good gain
if youíre looking for signals that far away from any of the White Pine TV broadcasting sites
 on Squaw Peak serving Ely, in Ruth, on Rib Hill pointed south toward Preston and Lund, or from our hub above Cave Lake State Park.

Many have had good luck with the Channel Master CM-4228HD.
Itís designed for UHF, but seems to work okay for high VHF where signals are fairly strong. 
The 8-bay Channel Master HDB8X is a similar antenna.

The Winegard HD-769 series have proven to work well for many for high VHF and UHF reception. 
Thereís the HD7694 that many are using successfully, then thereís the better HD7697, and the best, the HD7698.  Size and price increase with each model.

The Antennas Direct XG91 is the best antenna for UHF, but it doesnít work well for VHF stations. 
You would need a separate VHF antenna to go with it for best results. 
There arenít many VHF-only antennas available anymore, so a combination antenna is a good compromise.

If you want the stations transmitting on the VHF low band, channels 2-6, and high band, channels 7-13, plus UHF, the Channel Master 3018 or better 3020, or the Winegard HD8200U are your options.

The stationís transmitter channel is the one you need to refer to when choosing the type of antenna you want.  Donít be confused by the virtual channel number.
White Pine TV only operates two low band VHF translator, channel 3 in Ruth, which is KLAS TV, CBS from Las Vegas, and channel 6, KVVU TV Fox from Las Vegas serving Ely.

Here are a few sites offering outdoor antennas:
 Solid Signal
  Ace Hardware
Warren Electronics
Dennyís Antenna Service




The Winegard "Flat Wave" and Mohu "Leaf", "Curve", and "Sky" as well as the RCA 'Ultra Thin"
offer a good VHF-UHF indoor solution starting at around $30.
