Looking for some input on how to hit two towers in Omaha.

Trying to cut the cord from DirecTV and just ordered a Chanel Master DVR+



Looking to get the RCA ANT751 Outdoor Antenna from Amazon[1] , and mount it on my current DirecTV mount and use that existing cable.



My issue is one main tower is at 67.04°/8 Miles (ABC/NBC/CBS) and the other at 193.33°/13.5 Miles (Fox/CW), will this Antenna be able to get them both if I aim it somewhat in the middle of those two towers?


Here is my TVFool Report[2]



Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank You
Jason

Get a ClearStream 2V instead. Remove the reflector, mount the VHF unit to your mast (or a separate mount), and you have a very good bi-directional UHF/VHF antenna.

As far as the D* mount - The antenna MUST be located so the signals from both directions can get to it. You may well have to move the mount. As for the cables, they're fine. Remove any multi-switches and replace with a standard splitter.
