i recently moved from Pennsylvania to Palmdale, CA, 93550 and brought my digital stream box with me.

I'm up in the high desert and cannot get reception from my converter box.

Can you tell me why do i need a different antenna other than the one i used in Pittsurgh which gave me fine reception.

I'm about 50 miles from the San Fernando valley which picks up all the valley and Los Angeles channels.

Thanks,

George

Greetings George, and welcome to the Forum :welcome:

The first thing we'll need, is a reception Chart on your location.

Go to...
TV Fool
fill out the cells completely, then...
look above the chart and see the line of bold type.
Copy and paste that link into your next post here, and we'll go from there.

Now, for your other question...
Yes, there are differences in Antennas, Jewels to Junk !
Once we have the requested information, we can give you a selection of available Antennas, which would be right for you (I hope).
There are areas where it's nearly impossible to get even fair reception, but your chart will help determine that.

Have a good Day ! :)
S.W.

Thank you for the help but I have no idea how to navigate that site.
