Tyler what do you think about the RCA ANT3036? It has good reviews but it's a huge antenna that I probably need being surrounded by mountains and trees.. I can get it at Wallyworld for $79.95 but Amazon has got them for $64. WM is great on returns but IDK about Amazon..as far as shipping. I heard Best Buy will match anyones price- wonder if WM will do the same. If there's another good one let me know..I just wanna do this One more time!
I would go with a Winegard 7696 or the bigger 7698. You don't need the large old school antennas for Low VHF. These newer models are designed for HiVHF 7-13, and UHF. That is what you need for this area. And perhaps a Winegard 269 or 8700 preamp. And similar Antennacraft versions are HBU-33 or HBU-55. You can try the Antennacrafts from Radioshack, but best prices are probably Solid Signal or similar online vendors. Winegard has better build quality.
Thats good to know- I really don't want a huge antenna unless I have to. I tried the HBU-33 and it didn't work for me. Even though my avatar shows Greenville, I'm actually in Pickens with a lot of mountains and trees. Does Radio shack carry Wineguard? Lot higher but an easy return.
It seems they all say from 7 & up. Does this mean I can't get channel 4? Also what is HiVHF?
Maybe the FCC should pass a rule that says that when stations do their required station identifications, in addition to displaying the city of license they have to also have a voice-over announcing the RF channel on which they are broadcasting. Something like
"This is WYFF Channel 4, Greenville, SC, broadcasting over-the-air on licensed UHF channel 36."
I'm sure the cable companies would just love a rule like that!
