WCPO knocked off the air.

WCPO was off the air during tonight's storms. As of 11:30 pm they were back up.

Afternoon, I see this thread is still very active so I am hoping you guys can help me find an antenna to put in my attic. I live in a neighborhood that has restrictions on having an outside antenna so that is not an option. Before our house was built i ran my own coax cable from the attic to my basement where all of my lines run from the rooms. I currently have a walmart special up there and am receiving most of the local channels. 19 is spotty at best on all but 1 tv. My house is facing north directly parallel to I-75 (which is about 60 yards from my house). Antenna will be apx 25 feet off the ground. My attic is fairly large but I would prefer nothing too large. I am a true beginner so anything that could be plug and play would be great. I have also attached a copy of my tvfool report. Thanks in advance!!

First, as stated in the antenna help sticky thread, a link is better than a screenshot. Since you have fewer than 5 posts, PM me the link and I'll insert it FOR you.

Second, HOAs cannot restrict television antennas beyond historical or safety reasons. Exceptions are condos and townhomes where the roof may be shared. I've lived in two neighborhoods where such restrictions have existed and have happily put up antennas and DirecTV dishes. The latter was an expensive legal battle, but I prevailed. It's also the reason they didn't argue the OTA antenna.

That said, I lived in Florence for a while and had great success with a large combo in the attic. I WAS on a hill, however, so that helped. I could get Cincy and Dayton stations from there. I miss that house.

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

I am in maineville and can receive all Cincinnati stations with an old winegard sensar in the garage attic - 20 feet off the ground. I had it in the attic for a while but moved it outside to combine with an antenna to get dayton stations (for some odd reason I am still a browns fan) - at the time I did test it inside and it still worked well.
