Carl, If you have a shower you can hook a hose and drain it to the shower or put it on the counter and drian it to the sink. In the small Scamp it takes a week to fill the bucket so I just check it every week. But if your going to be away and cant check it buy a hose and drain it to your tank..

Looks like a nice camp. We love canoeing and fishing. I bookmarked it and will check it out in depth soon. Have fun on the 4th! We love canoeing and fishing.

[QUOTE=Night Sailor;467649] 90% were standard (low) definition.

I thought Canada and the U.S. mandated a switch to digital for all broadcasters some two or three years ago.

The switch to Digital transmission was mandated so they could transmit HD, as well as pick up about a bazillion additional sub-channels, ex 7-1, 7-2, 7-3 etc. But if a station is still using lower def studio equipment, such as a local independent or an educational/school station and/or pre-recorded sources, they may not be full HD.

And I believe that repeater transmitters for some remote locations are still exempt and can be analog.

I believe that HD was introduced in the 90s on a limited basis

Yep, that's correct, but the lack of bandwidth in analog system created the need to go to Digital transmission systems.

The channels were digital. 480 resolution is essentially Standard Definition.

I would be happy to have terrestrial broadcasts except fur commercials which take up 50% of the broadcasts.

We used the antenna all weekend. It was a rainy
weekend so it was used a lot. On each side of our
little Scamp was a TT with satellite as I stated
it was a rainy weekend and the trailers with satellite
lost reception during the storms. My signal was
great with plenty to watch...

Glad it worked out so well for you Mike. I bookmarked the link you posted earlier for this. It sounds like the "Big Boys" could learn a trick or two for the FGRV crowd! Sorry you got so much rain, but happy you made the best of it. Thanks for the report and pics.

A friend took his house boat to Silver Glens FL for a weekend trip. The closest TV stations are aprox 65 miles. Never able to get any TV stations from there before. He picked up a Clearstream 2V from Wal-Mart and was amazed he picked up 43 channels including all the major networks.

I have the Clearstream 4 on my home and get HD quality on all local channels so I can attest to the excellent quality. How do you have the antenna mounted. My trailer is a Casita SD 17. I tried that Phillips thing with zero luck. Luckily I have free returns with Amazon.
