You may want to consider a Clearstream 2V or 4V and have better luck. Aim for sweet spot between the Dallas and Charlotte towers. You are probably to close to the Clt towers to use an amp.

Perhaps the Mohu 50 amplified version would work better. But those Mohu antennas are not optimized for your VHF channels. I would consider a Terk HDTVa sold at HHG. It has rabbit ears for VHF, a good...

I believe you have hilly terrain in that region, which may be a concern. Especially if you want reception from Pittsburgh as well as Morgantown. And it looks like you have both Low and High VHF, as...

The 55LB6300 looks very nice in the stores, with a wider viewing angle due to the IPS panel. But as a result, black levels and contrast may not be quite as good. But I am more concerned about the...

They simulcast Channel 7 on 62.2 because of gaps in their coverage area, apparently in Western NC. But it would be nice with today's advanced encoders, that they broadcast both 62.1-CW and 62.2-CBS...

It appears WBTV may be broadcasting their news from a different studio, as the backdrop and camera angles appear slightly altered. And there seems to be a black and white checkerboard floor. And I...

Your TV may have to have HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) for this to work. Do you have Optical Toslink or Red/White RCA audio? That may be another option.

I think the picture quality on GritTV is very good. But I agree it would probably be nicer in 16x9 format. And they should do the same with Bounce, especially when they air the local news broadcasts....
