Channels I would also like to pick up: 7.x(ABC), 11.x(CW-11)(both on H-VHF)
Channels I receive all too well, but could care less about
: No explanation nec.
The challenge: (see attached photo) Basically the way I'm facing, is pretty much towards all of Manhattan, if not the ESB specifically. I'm estimating the hill(itself, not including any trees, etc) at anywhere from 60 - 70 feet total height, or about 30 feet taller than our location.
Can I safely assume that NO type of antenna nor any amount of amplification will help me get those two additional channels, given what is in that photo??
