There's a large area around this intersection where the predicted signal strengths are equal.
Signals are mostly weak but not impossible. Mine are weaker. It will require a preamp and a good outdoor antenna that's high enough to clear the trees. You'll need a notch filter for KRCB on channel 23 because it'll overload any preamp.
I wouldn't consider any antenna smaller than the Winegard HD7698P or the AntennaCraft HBU55. A good preamp would be the Clearstream Juice.
HD7698P - $125
Preamp - $80
Notch Filter - $125
Coax, Mast, Mounting, etc - ???
Since all the San Francisco stations are 2 edge, I can almost guarantee you that you'll receive all the stations but not 100%. There'll be conditions where the stations won't come in. There's no way to know without trying it.
