advice on antenna selection


Billy McDougal

Hi, looking to cut the cable. Asking for antenna recommendation and installation tips. Would like to put antenna on the flood of my attic, which is the third floor of the house. TV fool info is below.
Thanks in advance.

You have a terrific antenna survey with great potential. I wish my survey looked as promising.

We need more information: How much height do you have in your attic? What building materials are the walls and inside them? Brick and adobe construction block or attenuate TV signals as does foil-backed insulation. Do you have a metal roof or foil-backed insulation in the roof? Metallic objects such as HVAC ducting, metal chimney pipes, etc. can be problems. Please advise.
