I get CH 3 but it is sensitive to interference and weather.

RF 3 or virtual 3? We have no idea. Please post your TV Fool report and start a new thread.

She would be running about 5 tvs also. Any and all help is appreciated.

This should be a new thread since it's about a specific reception situation. This thread is for generic antenna discussion. Follow the sticky above.

Then the DIY antenna thread may be of interest, too.
How to build a UHF antenna...

DO NOT build the one in the first link. I'm still using the 4-bay bowtie shown starting at the bottom of page 1, but there is a huge amount of information here, so don't stop there!

HAve fun,
Frank

Roanoke, VA has THREE local Stations in Lo-VHF Band on Ch3 (PBS), Ch4 [CBS, Duplicate to UHF Ch18] and Ch5 [ABC, Duplicate to Hi-VHF Ch13]:

YES, you probably need a HUGE Antenna for (at least Ch3).....but before we can recommend a suitable Antenna(s), we first need to see a link to your TVFool Report. We also need to assess whether you should also try to pick up Ch4 vs UHF Ch18 and Ch5 vs Hi-VHF Ch13, depending on your Location and intervening Terrain. And what is your current Antenna(s)????
