My temporary antenna situation is this:
Before hurricane Rita I unfurled this VHF/UHF antenna in the attic and it expanded to a size larger than the Voyager 1 spacecraft and was to gangly and unwieldy to move. So I set it in a sweet spot pointed towards the Lafayette stations to receive the following HD stations with strong signal strength:
3 KATC ABC HD--strongest DTV signal we receive in Marksville
10 KLFY CBS HD
15 KADN FOX HD
15.2 KLAF SD
24.1,24.3,24.5 LPB/PBS HD
When CW 50 in New Iberia does their flash cut in a year people here can expect to receive them as they have a strong analog signal here.
I use a good set of rabbit ears to receive the Alexandria stations so I don't have to turn that beast in the attic.
I have never picked up 31 KLAX's SD signal.
I can easily receive 5 KALB, 48 WNTZ SD, and LPB's DTV 25.
I can also get a solid signal from Fox 14 KARD Monroe with the rabbit ears, but they must be pointed precisely. Same thing for 33 WVLA NBC Baton Rouge.
In the coming weeks in conjunction with a house landscape project, we'll be installing a new outdoor antenna. I want the best set up possible with a tower so high, it'll need red lights and guy wires.
Because Marksville is in a "super rural" area between cities with numerous DTV signals expected to come on in the next year and some of them in the UPPER VHF band like 9 WAFB, 10KLFY, 7 KPLC, & 8KNOE, I'll want the Channel Master model with both maximum UHF and upper VHF ranges.
No station in Louisiana will be in the lower VHF band of channels (2-6) in a year.
