Channel Eight installs an antenna to higher serve Lincoln’s over-the-air viewers
Kanal 8 KLKN-TV recently installed a new antenna on the tower of the transmitter on the 10th and Arapahoe. All you have to do to get it is connect your antenna to your TV or converter box and scan again. As soon as you scan again, you can enjoy 8.1 (ABC), 8.2 (Grit), 8.3 (Court TV Mystery) and 8.4 (Laff) in addition to other radio channels. If you are using a cable or Internet service, you do not need to scan again. Some TVs are automatically rescanned. If your TV doesn’t, see below for information on how to rescan.
To scan again:
- Connect the TV to a wireless antenna. Outdoor antennas offer the best performance.
- Select “Channel search”, “Auto-Tuning” or a similar function from the menu of your TV remote control or converter box to start the scanning process. Instructions can usually be found by pressing the Setup or Menu buttons.
- If you’re using an indoor antenna, you may want to relocate it. For the best reception, follow these five steps:
a. Point your antenna at the location of the tower at 3240 South Tenth Street
b. Place the antenna in or near a window facing the tower.
c. Place the antenna as high as possible.
d. Keep the antenna away from metal
e. You may need to test different locations for your antenna to get the maximum strength. Every time you move the antenna you should scan again.
If you re-scan your TV and still cannot use our channel, see the user manual or website for your TV or converter box for troubleshooting help and customer service contact information. Below are some resource websites that will help you maximize your search.
