The FM Fool report indicates very strong signals nearby, including Paris Mountain. And several FM stations from Charlotte also come in strong. I am going to add more FM traps, because I connected the UHF antenna to the radio, and in spite of the UVSJ and FM trap, I am still getting FM stations coming through. But are there any FM channels that cause bad harmonics or interference with RF22? Although WCNC has a side mounted directional antenna with a bit of a null, I still get it reliably at my own residence which is further away than my sister's house. And it used to come in good over there also. I just wonder if all these new FM translator stations they have added in recent years could be creating a problem, and I think a few others such as 95.9 may have increased power. Still trying to troubleshoot. Although in a few years things will be changing when the channels move, but the current set up should still work except for perhaps a few isolated issues that may need to be resolved when the time comes. I am also going to replace the CM-Amplify with a Juice preamp and see if that helps better with the overload.

Looking for some advice on antenna(s). Jumping into cutting the cord for the first time but still need to be able to get the main networks. According to TV Fool both UHF and VHF-Hi are going to be needed but all channels seem to be between 304° and 1°. A few more channels are at 6° but those are just bonus channels if receivable.

Main channels wanted:

Outdoor antenna(s) mounted on the roof or to the eve should be fine with the wife. This will put the antenna(s) around 25’ off the ground. Aesthetics are a concern but only slightly. As the back of the house faces 300° the roof system will hide the antenna(s) as long as the don’t have to be mounted above the ridge of the roof. Last concern is the antenna(s) will feed multiple TV’s watching different channels at the same time so a rotating mount is out of the question.

What would be the best plan of attack for these needs? Would two antenna’s be better than one or not? What antenna(s) would you suggest?

First thoughts after a lot of reading are ether the DB8e or DB4E and a 30-2440 from mcm or a single Winegard HD7694P (the HD7698P seems to big). If two antenna’s how do you hook them together? What preamps are best for each application?

I think I just need a bit of help.

Ryan....I am in the process of answering your other post in the 'technical' section but needed 1 more post so that I an add my TVFool link to this is just a heads-up to check there and to give me the extra posting that I needed to add the link.
