Mandatory read *** before *** posting

Do NOT start a new thread in this section without consulting a moderator. Find the metro area nearest to you using this index: United States THREAD INDEX - Find your local discussion thread HERE

The reason? Reception issues and antenna questions are 99.9% different based on locality. Better to get answers from those already familiar with the geography, cable systems and broadcast transmitters. Posting in an existing thread sends a message to its subscribers. Posting blindly in this section does not. You'll be ignored.

NEXT: For antenna issues of ANY kind. Even if you can't possibly imagine location mattering, do this ANYWAY: Go to and include a LINK ..I repeat.. a LINK to your TVFool report. Please use street addresses and not lat/lon. Most of us don't have time to go plug that in and see where you are. Your exact address will not display when you use a TVFool link. Plus, with a link, we can click on stations to get more information. Can't do that with an image.

If you don't do this, you're going to be asked to, anyway, and that costs time. No two points in the US are exactly the same, so the answer to nearly all antenna questions will be different in different locations.

If you get no response to your post in your local thread, then go to the HDTV Technical area and READ THE STICKY THREADS there.

The goal is to get your answers as quickly and accurately as possible. Ignoring the above will only hinder your efforts.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
