ok so here is a picture of my roof
and i switched my tv to cable off and re did auto program to find channels over the antenna it was pretty close to before but values were different. so this is what i got now
on the one cable i got 4 channels
2.1,2.2, 2.3, and 11.1
2.1 channel diagnostics
phy ch= 23
all of the channel 2's were perfect
and channel 11.1 was terrible, maybe 1 sec of video every minute
the second cable i have coming down from the roof got me this:
1 channel 11.1
11.1 channel diagnostics
phy ch= 11
SNR= 19.5 anywhere to 20.5db
now my confusions comes in because as far as i can read the tv fool results i posted earlier, these 2 channels are extremely close in distance and angle....maybe im wrong, i dont understand why im only getting on channel on either of the two cables and not both channels on both cables. at this point im thinking i need to drill a hole by my tv so i can use a 6 ft coax cable instead of 50ft after my matching transformer the splices the 2 lead 300ohm to my new rg6. that should help with signal loss, also a fm blocker as they are cheap enough. For installing preamps should they be up on the antenna? or could i install it where the 2 lead wire comes into the basement? if it has to go up on the antenna i wil wait untill i drill hole and shorten cable length and can actually get on the roof to tweak the antenna direction to see if i can get 11.1 on the antenna that is getting 2 and 11 terribly, i was thinking of following the two wires to their respective antennas and moving the the one that gets 4 channels slightly in the direction of teh one that is getting only 11.1 and fanagling it untill i get as many channels/strongest sig str possible, then install a pre amp.
Is there a better way to align the anteanna, i.e perfectly with compass?
thank you so much everybody for your help and support
