My roof's too high and steep, and i'm afraid of heights, lol. I had a friend try to hook it onto the back of my D* dish, but with anything touching my dish, it caused my satellite to go out. I dont think he was enthused about it enough to bother with installing a mount for me, and i didnt want to be pushy.
I'm basically going to need a separate mount for it, though I already have the antenna cable rigged to the roof (the endpiece is unattached lying besides my satellite dish atm).
I'll let ya know how the indoor RS double bowtie works out when it comes it. It was only 14.99 so its worth a try. If I can get one indoor antenna to pick up shinall good and the other one redfield, then i might just get a switcher so i dont have to get up to rotate the antenna every time i change the station.
(edit) regarding having trouble with 16 and 38, i did notice something really strange. When they do come in, the signal strengh (using the feature on my STB) is always stronger than ABC and CBS, but it drops out on me more. It goes from near pegging the meter, to the bottom causing a dropout. Maybe that has something to do with what you suggested. My house was built in 1995.
