Thanks Mattdp.. a lot of interesting reading there. I will start researching rotators and the type of base I want.. tri pod vs j bar.. etc , best deals on RG6 cable..how much I need.. amps and splitters... and form a plan. I have watched enough DIY install videos that "maybe" I am willing to tackle this thing myself.. I may call a local place for an estimate.. just to compare. Glad ai happened across this forum, and should i venture into the land of antenna owner, I will be sure to post my results... but will continue to gather data from anyone willing to share..
