Good day everyone!

First timer to this forum, and contemplating OTA. With the analysis report from tvfool - http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d2df9e8137bb990, can someone please suggest the right antenna and it's mount details (attic/roof etc)?

Thanks a lot in advance.

I checked out your TVFool analysis report - looks like with a decent Indoor Antenna you could pick up around 10 Channels. I'm in Portland and use the omni-directional NV20 Pro works like a charm

Alternatively, you could install an antenna in the attic/roof and you would get up to 20+ stations. Best bet is the Channel Master CM4228 - AVS Forum review on it here

If you can get away with an indoor/attic antenna I'd go for it. Easier to install/maintain and the aesthetics are better than outdoor if that's important. However, the best reception will always be on a roof as high as is reasonable (30' from ground level).

Thank you all. I posted on TVfools forum and RCA ANT751 was suggested for the Canadian channels. I've placed an order already. Once I receive it, I'll install and report back how it turns out.

Thanks,

Please put a location in all antenna help threads per the sticky. See my edit.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
