I can't get ABC and PBS via over the air antenna from El Dorado Hills, CA. I am using Clear Stream 4 antenna from Antenna Direct, I get most other channels just fine. What can I do?

Do you need to add a VHF antenna? Is ABC on RF7?

I think I do need to add something to get these two VHF signals, do you think rabbit ears would help?

First, where is your antenna located?

ABC and PBS in the Sacramento area require a high-VHF antenna. The C4 is a medium-to-long range UHF antenna but is fairly blind on high_VHF.

Antennas Direct makes a simple VHF add-on for their C2 antenna that can easily be installed on a C4. Just swap out one of the stock reflectors and rewire it. While not optimally located, it does well enough for most folks for up to medium range high-VHF antenna and avoids either the expense or the physical size of a second or larger combo antenna. Look for it under Accessories > Reflectors on their website.
