help with HD signals / antenna
Ok - Getting a bit frustrated with OTA signal strength, etc here where I live in Atlanta. I live in a third floor apartment (top floor) in brookhaven (Post Glen) and am trying to find that best solution to receive the major network HD broadcasts but without having to constantly move around the antenna whenever i change the channels.
Don't know if you'll ever be satisfied with an indoor unit, just too little to work with, especially as your in the UHF range for all but WXIA.
Your other major
problem is you are so close in, that on one hand you need a highly directional antenna to cut down on the multipath distortion, yet on the other you need a rotator because you are so close to the towers. Not knowing the address I'd still guess that the towers are well apart as far as directional angle is concerned.
Using the zip 30326 I see the local stations from 163° all the way to 185°, thats a 21° difference.
No directional antenna is going to pull that wide a range, especially that close in.
Might want to look at the Channel Master site and take a look at the 3010 Stealthtenna or the 3000 Smartenna. The Smartenna I'd suggest first, and is omni directional, small, and works decent 'in town'. I would set the STB to only pull digital stations in then go back and delete the ones you don't want.
