Broadcast Quality SW of Atlanta
In a new townhouse with a ClearStream C4 in an attic installation. Coordinates attached. The installer started with a Terk wall/table top model in the attic with a cheap Terk signal amp. Poor performance. The C4, with the Terk amp, sends decent signals from ABC/NBC [2.1 and 11.1] down 20-30' of RG-6 through a splitter to two HDTVs, with Fox [5.1] to one TV and occasional signals from CBS [46.1]. As you see from the coordinates, I'm 26-30 miles sw of the main ATL towers, with the C4 pointed toward the 50-55 degree [magnetic] azimuth. No PBS coverage at all. Curiously, I get a good signal from Ion [14.1], more than 50 miles away in the opposite direction [5/9 degrees, tru/magnetic]. What gives?
I'm adding the high VHF kit to the C4 in hopes of getting PBS [8.1] and a better signal from NBC [11.1/10]. I'm adding the ClearStream Juice signal amp and an amplified splitter. I'll report on the results, but ask you Atlanta area cable cutters for any additional suggestions. What can I do to get both PBS channels, for example. Regards!
