I live in Gulfport in the Orange Grove area. I just got into this OTA stuff about a month ago. My first antenna was the cm4228 with the 7777 preamp. I mounted on a 20ft pole and had good success except for the bad multipath I was receiving from WWL(4.1) and espeacially WDSU(6.1). The frustrating part was I good pick up FOX 8 with no drops. When I pointed the antenna to Mobile I could pick up WKRG (5.1) with no drops and WEAR (3.1) with some drops doing the day. I decided to switch to the XG91 with is much lighter and suppose to handle multipath. Well, it does seem to bring in stronger signals on some of the stations but it still not resolving my issues I have with wwl and wdsu. I think I'm just going to keep the antenna pointed to mobile. When the sun was going down last night, I did a rescan and my tv found over 25 digital stations. I was getting over 94% signal strength on 3.1,5.1,15.1 and not to mention all the pbs stations. Also picking up wxxv wlox and pbs from the side. In summary, this is what I got
20 ft pole
cm 7777 preamp mounted on pole
New Belkin RG6 Quad (solid copper) <50 ft.
Glad to see some people in here that live on the coast.
By the way, how do you start a new thread under gulfport/Biloxi or could we create a GulfCoast,MS thread?
