Instead of 2 C2Vs, I would suggest a Clearstream 4, and then get the add on VHF element. And a preamp. Or even better, possibly a DB8e, with the add on VHF element. Point part of the antenna towards...

Great choice with the 51F5300. Excellent full 1080p pic quality, and a good value at $529 or $549. But if you have "crappy DirecTV " then you should upgrade to HD to get the full outstanding picture....

I think he should consider a Winegard 7696 or Antennacraft HBU-33 antenna, and a Channel Master 7778 preamp or 3414 distribution amp. Or possibly a Winegard LNA-200 preamp. Not too much amp is...

They have done a good job with the morning show on WJZY. But the 6pm and 10pm newcasts indeed need an overhaul. Hopefully more of a standard style newscast with anchors at a desk. Similar to other...
