I have been lurking on this board for several months and I have to admit that I have learned a great deal about TV and satellites etc. This is a terrific resource. My new Mits 65732 is in route, the Dish installer is scheduled in as well. I am dropping my COX cable due to the poor HDTV selection. My locals are not available in High Def over the sat and I need some assistance choosing an OTA antenna. Here are the Antenna references. Any help would be appreciated. I can go attic or roof top. This is Kansas so trees and tall buildings are not a major concern. I was looking at the Winegard SS2000 because it can be attached directly to the satellite dish. Will it work?

Hey, always glad to see some fellow Kansans join AVS..... I still use Cox for HD so I am not sure what antenna to recommend to you, however check out this link...

It will take you to the Wichita Ks, OTA HD Forum.. there is lots of good info, and I believe that some people have given reviews of OTA Antennas..

Let me know how you like satellite, I have been toying with the idea of dumping Cox and going to dish... I will be interested to see what you think...

The SS2000 is absolute JUNK. At that distance, you should attic mount a Channel Master 3016, and point it toward Wichita. It's available from for $29.

Use the balun kit included with the antenna and run some RG-6 to the HDTV. You can get some good RG-6 cable from RadioShack, Lowe's, or Home Depot. You might need only a 25-foot run, maybe longer (up to 50 feet).
