petercw2, - so you are getting which channels and which ones are you not getting?
42-1 (Channel 4) Yes/No -- Signal Strength ___
38-1 (Channel 7 - PBS) Yes/No -- Signal Strength ___
34-1 (Channel 17 - WB) Yes/No -- Signal Strength ___
32-1 (Channel 30 - FOX) Yes/No -- Signal Strength ___
19-1 (Channel 47 - CBS) Yes/No -- Signal Strength ___
13-1 (Channel 12 - NBC) Yes/No -- Signal Strength ___
10-1 (Channel 25 - ABC) Yes/No -- Signal Strength ___
OK let's rule out the obvious:
1. re-check all connections
2. re-boot your receiver
3. manually enter channel number - 34-1 or 19-1 - mayber your receiving is not mapping them correctly
4. Antenna type -(read below)
It appears you have some funky antenna, I believe you have this one (see link)
Typical antenna used (I believe, at least this is the type I use - not the same brand though)http://www.solidsignal.com/prod_disp...=&PROD=SPR7042
Ugly I know, but you probably should utilize one of these in your attic first then try to install outside if that doesn't work.
You can "demo" (in other words purchase one at Home Depot/Lowes) one and return it if necasarry, but I am willing to bet that the antenna you have now is the issue - it just looks gimicky and unreliable.
