I'm not a handiman. I have no idea how or who to call to install an outdoor antenna. Can you please give me some advice or tell me what skills a person will need to have. I could never do this, I'll have to hire someone plus, won't i need to run cable to the TV? Even once i mount the antenna, I don't know anything about cabling the house adn the best way to go about doing it. Suppose i want the cable to go to more than one TV?

FYI, i do have coaxial going to all the rooms in my house already.

Thanks!

Where do you live?
Have you tried a google search for antenna installers in your area?

Well I plugged in my location and i found some possibilities. I wasn't sure anyone did this but looks like i could have looked up home improvements and looked around. But i typed in Antenna Installation and the word SERVICE popped up in the google search box and i selected it. Most of what it offered was from Sears. I've never used them for home improvement. Do they install stuff you buy from elsewhere?

Sears? Probably not.

I'd try calling several TV Repair shops in your area and see if they can recommend someone.
