    Default Outdoor Antenna Advice Wanted (moving in two weeks)

    Hello everyone. I will be moving from an apartment to a mobile home in a rural country setting. The only tv options are satellite which I do not want or over the air tv. I own a 2012 model Vizio 32 inch led lcd tv. I would like to keep the cost of the antenna to $100 or less. I do not have any brand preferences but simply want the best value for the money. Thank you for the help.

    If you are not into home built antennas here is what I would try. Aimed at 182 degrees magnetic.
    Solid Signal Xtreme Signal 2-Bay Outdoor TV Antenna 35mi (HD1080X) from Solid Signal
    The channel line up with success should be ABC, RTV, Fox, CW, Cozi.
    If the TV Fool report posted is indeed accurate for your exact location to do anything more then that would require some expensive notch filters.

    I'd think it would be worth investigating a high gain UHF antenna pointed toward 263 degrees magnetic and an antenna with high VHF gain pointed at 16 degrees magnetic connected with a UVSJ. Channel 13 is strong enough it could easily come in off the side of the antenna.
    Snappy Dan Reminds You:

    DO NOT install antennas anywhere where they could fall into overhead power lines!!! An antenna falling into power lines may result in electrical shock or death. All outdoor antennas must be grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NEC). Be careful while working on roofs or towers. Always use appropriate safety precautions!!!

    Interesting Idea but if signal overload from WWCW is as high as predicted a channel 20 notch filter might be necessary.
