My 86 year old mom just moved into an assisted living facility. Before considering cable, I thought I'd try an antenna for her and see if she was satisfied with that. Unfortunately, for TV reception anyway, her room is on the west side of the building and the signals all come from the east.
Because she would like something unobtrusive and having limited mobility she can not be fiddling with it, I set her up RCA ANT1450B from walmart.
She did need the amplification, I tried it with the amplifier unplugged and missed more stations and some of the ones she did get would pixelate, etc.
She is picking up all the channels I'd expect except 6.1 (also 6.2) and 10.1 (10.2-10.4 also).
I thought I might get a different antenna and see if she would get more channels. But I'm sure what might be good to try next?
Is there some particular reason why 10 and 6 would no be picked up?
Since I'm not yet allowed to post a link, I will post a follow-up with link to TV fool report.
