I have a Winegard 7697p connected to a Channel Master CM-7777 preamplifier mounted in my garage attic (equivalent of a second floor). Below is my TVFool chart. I get "good" reception according to my television on all of the yello and pink channels EXCEPT Fox (48 / 57.1). My TV doesn't even pick it up when I do a channel scan. I am having a hard time understanding this because I get good reception on MyN (39 / 63.1) which appears to be broadcast from the same tower according to the TVFool info? Any ideas?

Relocate the antenna. It's in a "dead spot" for that station.

If relocating the antenna does not work, try the antenna outside. Even though Fox is 29 miles away, it is at 2 edge reception, which is iffy for an antenna thats in the attic.
