Is anyone using OTA in the East Brunswick NJ area? I'm looking for a good UHF antenna to pick up the NY stations, and maybe even a couple of Philadelphia, PA stations, and was curious what everyone's using to accomplish this. I've read a lot of the threads here, and plugged in location in the antennaweb, but actual experience will help with my decision. Thanks,
Ralph :rolleyes:

I am in Middlesex county and receive the NY stations (what is available) but not the Philly ones. The only way to know for sure is to try.

Thanks for the reply. What antenna are you currently using for your reception? It looks like using a really large mulitdirectional, you can get WCAU (NBC) in Phila.

I live in West Windsor(Mercer County). I'm using a Winegard 8800 with their 4800 preamp mounted in the attic. I get all of the Philly stations, WNJT out of Trenton and if I turn it to the north I can get CBS and FOX from NY. I may get a rotator when the rest of the NY stations get back on line.

sorry
I am using a small channel master UF only (model 2428?) on an inside wall of my condo. With an outdoor antenna and decent elevation you should be able to get philly and NyC
