Well it took a little doing to get it right ! The pic's are great. The best thing is I get more channels for free 18 in all. I just read that If I go with a 360 deg. antenna i will get around 56 channels!

 

Take the cable and shove it where the sun don't shine!

 

I'll never give the cable co. another cent ever again!

Glad it works good for you! It reaLLY BLOWS for me.. Only good thing is 4 out of the 8 channels I get are PBS. I have awful reception some days and the bummer is it doesn't just get staticy like before. It get all pixelated and you loose the audio first thing. Makes it pretty frustrating to try and watch something that is not coming in perfect. Just my .02 and btw I have a decent electrically boosted antenna not just plain rabbit ears.

The best choice at your location is the Winegard HD 7084P antenna.

This antenna has the ability to capture the Violet rated signals and provide consistent quality digital reception. Because the TV transmitters are located within a 40 degree spread of each other the antenna can be installed in a fixed position with the narrower end of the antenna pointing at the center point between the two transmitters with the furthest separation.

It help me out a lot. check the maps out.

The one thing I noticed about the coverage maps, is that they don't indicate how many different channels each station broadcasts....Most of the stations I pick up on my antenna are broadcasting 2-3 channels, each....So, for each station you can pick up, you can add 2-3 more on your selections...

I'm picking up about 12 channels, including ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and PBS....Hooray for free TV! (even as lousy as it is, at least it's free)

I tried again all day Saturday.....hundreds of dollars in antennas....cables... connectors............pfffttt....it does not work in my area... at best I had 11 channels (2 in spanish and others were MPT, Qubo and Ion) and the two major networks that I had for a bit... clip out and get pixelated... best signal was 75% but it only picked up 8 channels....next was about 50% with 11 channels...finally just gave up and called DISH.
