Im not allowed to put up an outdoor antenna.

My apartment is on the northside of a small hill, the broaodcast towers are on the southeast-ish "opposiet" of the hill, thoe towers are 30ish miles away.
The black is the hill I set behind. And my apartment is actually torwards the the end of that cherokee court......The hill is taller than what I can see over, maybe a good 20feet tall or so, but thats guessing....

You are going to have issues unless you somehow put the antenna outside, or at least high enough in your apt to get over that hill.
Do you live on a second or third floor? Can you somehow mount an antenna on the wall outside your window, or balcony if you have one? The ANT 751 is a small antenna.

Also just for curiousity, re-post your tvfool results, but this time when you enter your data, put in 20ft for antenna height just to see if reception improves.
