    Default no channels

    we live in a heavily wooded area and only get 1 channel with our outdoor antenna hooked up with our converter box, could our reception be so bad because of our wooded location?

    get a pre amp and a rotor and then use antennaweb to find out what directions the channels are transmitting

    On your tvfool.com results, are all of the broadcast towers located in the same direction, or are they spread apart?

    you may need to upgrade your antenna to one with higher gain if your transmitters are mostly UHF I would suggest the 91-xg from antennas direct it can be tilted 15 degrees to off set buildings and trees to improve signals.
