Here's my plot. Any recommendations would be appreciated. I've been leaning toward an Antennas Direct DB2e and putting it in my attic. Then, run RG6 about 75' (over and down) to a cable box on the outside of the house (splitter city!). I would expect to put a small line amp after the antenna to maximize (but not overdrive) the signal for the 75' run and push through the loss of the splitters.

What say you gurus?

Kindly

1) Edit the title of your topic to include a location

2) Post the LINK to your TVFool plot, not a graphic of the plot. There's a distinct difference in usefulness.

3) How many sets do you plan to use?

4) What stations are on your "have to have" and which are on the "nice to have" lists? Any "don't care" stations?

A DB2e will cost you your NBC station and one of the PBS stations unless you add a VHF element to it.

My apologies. In Kennesaw, Georgia, with 4 TVs to serve.

Here' s the plot link: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d2df9f758b71965

I'd like do get the major networks... Basically all yellow channels. Any recommendation over the DB2 or should I add a VHF antenna & combine?
