New to the boards here, and reporting from Lake Elsinore, Riverside County (zip 92530)
Have a Radio Shack 15-2160 antenna in the attic of a two story house. Row of pine trees partially block the 301.x degree angle of the house, but they have been trimmed and I tried to point the antenna to the right of where the row of trees ends. With just the antenna I was able to pull channels 4-1 ,5-1 & 5-2, 9-1, 24-1, 28-1 & 28-2, 34-1, 34-2, 50-1 through -3, 56-1 & 56-2, 57-1, and finally 58-1 through -4. 28-1 and 28-2 would drop on and off, so I decided to add an amplifier (Radio Shack 15-1170)
With the amplifier, channels 2-1, and 7-1 through -3 finally came through, although I had to tune channel 7 through 53. I did a rescan and then channel 7 came through as 7-1 through 7-3. I still haven't been able to pull channels 11 and 13, so I'm thinking I need to either a) put the antenna outside (trying to avoid this), or b) get a bigger amplifier.
Any recommendations are welcome!
Oh yeah, TV is a Samsung TX-P3071WH (built-in HD receiver)
