As high as possible and facing the closest big city since that's probably where most of the signals are coming from.

Think I read somewhere that Sev may know a thing or two about antennae. Installation, tuning, even dismantling.

For anyone that is familiar with Sev's recent forrays into antenna reallocation, that sounds diabolically funny.

Doubling an antenna's height quadruples the signal strength.

Advised my next brother to add another 20 foot and upgrade to a
deep fringe TV antenna. He could pickup Chicago from lower Michigan.


Oh. Most important. Stay off the roof and ladder. Swan dives are dangerous.

When got the hm it had a dish on the back porch, I put an antenna there and got reception, but not all the stations because of the trees across the street Tall Old Cottonwoods, that sprouted along the Arkansas River water table, well over 100 yrs ago.

I found another antenna on a 60 foot tower I was going to climb.

Time ran out and never got the chance to attempt the ascent.

Thx guys, so wtf is the simple course of action? Firestick or and antenna up Higher.?
Now if you guys ever have ANY questions on Auto Repair I know all to well how that works, I can even tell yah how to save money just buying parts.
I ran auto/truck repair shops for almost 18 yrs and a motorhome repair shop for 4 then retired. At the RV repair shop, we didn't do chassis work, just the house, anything above the frame.

Dave.
Auto repair is all well and fine. But the important question is. What do you know about farm tractors.

The first thing you need to do is provide some information as requested.

You could be using equipment that is inappropriate for your situation.
Not all OTA equipment is equal or designed to do the same thing.

Just like auto repair. It is important to have a certain amount of information in order to provide a diagnosis.

Do me a favor and take a few seconds to run the signal analysis, post the link and state the equipment you are currently using.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

My son has a "Jail broken" firestick and gets more content then he can watch.
Broken means it has more capability then a non broken one.
Legally it's a gray area.
Just google broken firestick.
