I think he means DB8e. The DB8e has moveable halves so you can point it in two different directions. There will still be the same problem though with possible loss of stations because each half will...

It's been 2 weeks and KMMW is still off the air. I wonder what's going on? They haven't filed an STA for silent operation with the FCC.

When you put antennas back to back like that and then sum them together with a 2-way combiner it's pretty much like not having the reflector. All sorts of experiences have been reported combing two...

I'd recommend an HBU44/HB55 or an HD76987P/HD7698P on the roof because you have 1 and 2 edge paths to your stations even though they are not very far away. The signals cover a broad range of what I'd...

The official launch of Decades isn't until May. They're doing something they're calling "Countdown to Decades" which I guess is going to run until then.

Does your TV not have an Add Channels function? I know there are many Sharp TVs that don't have it and I've heard that some Samsung TVs don't have it.
