Fellas, let me explain my thinking here. Just to remind, here's the Report for drmcnutt where you don't have to chase back through this thread to reference it. TV Fool. drmcnutt has 5 channels at his 252° heading. Those being 2 VHF-hi and 3 UHF, and they're only 21 miles away. There is VHF-lo on his chart, but, it's WAY off from him, and I'm not even going to consider them. At this point, he needs a Combination VHFhi/UHF Antenna, and it better be high gain, because I'm thinking that he's just too close to the stations to use a Pre-Amp. In Jim's post, he questioned the reliability of reception, I agree, but, I think everybody should have OTA even if it's not so good, and even if it's on a separate Cable from whatever other service they may have. So my recommendation at this point is...keep it simple, and let's see what happens. By that I mean, just one (roof) Antenna, there's always the option to expand to a second Antenna, or other signal boosting IF drmcnutt thinks this is going to work ok for him. My first choice was the Antennas Direct C5 ClearStream 5 High Gain Digital VHF TV Antenna (ClearStream5) from Solid Signal). A VHF-hi & UHF, 60+ miles range, I have the gain a 5+ VHF and 14+ UHF. Now, there's one other feature about it, it has a monster beamwidth of about 70° in the UHF band, which if directed carefully (like at 283° Magnetic), MAY negate the need to add a second antenna to pick up the two additional ION and CW channels. Also, it's not so large, where drmcnutt may be able to use the mounting post that he previously used for his Sat Dish (repositioned if necessary). I'm just trying to be as conservative as I can, just in case this falls on it's face, where drmcnutt won't have spent a bundle on a fluke. So Fellas, if you got a better idea, or other choice for THE Antenna, let's hear it.
