Have you been talking to my wife? . The antenna, no. I will be putting up a C5 antenna on it. The tower?.....probably not, but free is free. The higher I go, the better my pull should be. City will only let me go 35 feet though. I don't know......man thing I guess.
Nebraska. That says a lot: You need that tower. And probably those antennas, or something like them, too.
The big multiband antenna was pointing SSW to get channel 5 (VHF-lo),11 and 13 (VHF-hi) and 19, 28 (UHF). I am assuming that smaller antenna is a VHF-hi unit pointing East for channels 8 and 10.
Seriously, I would probably drop $150-$200 or so on a new deep fringe VHF / UHF combo antenna and a nice VHF-hi antenna - and another $50 for new coax. At 40 feet up on a tower, you want to put everything up right the first time. I would also note how the current set-up is wired before it is disassembled. It looks like there is a pre-amp there too, you may be able to re - use it. But all the coax should be replaced with good rg6 quad shield.
You might want to go to RabbitEars.Info and see what other channels and subchannels are available.
If you need both UHF and VHF AND a pre-amp, the BEST way to go is seperate antennas combined by a UHF/VHF pre-amp, excellent dedicated VHF and UHF antennas are generally about the same price as combo antennas and they work better too.
He has already been getting the local stations with the C5, but since he has been getting stations from long distances, I guess he wants to DX. One nice thing about Nebraska is the spectrum grabbers don't want VHF!!!
Decided to pass on the tower. The city I live in will only allow me to go up to 35' anyway. I took down a different tower a few weeks ago, and I think I can get 30' out of it. Yes, I'll be putting my C5 up on the mast of this tower. Maybe someday down the road I'll put a rotator on it, but for now, it seems to do really good just pointed at about 245*.
