I've had this preamp for 4 years now, & it has helped at getting 4 LPTV UHF stations, & the only Class A VHF-LO station. The full power stations were never the problem, as I'm about 30 miles SE of...

Going with a VHF-Hi/UHF only antenna for the Philadelphia market won't work for getting WPVI (ABC), as it's on RF 6. So unless the OP can live without ABC, then the OP must go with an all channel...

I'm starting to wonder if Winegard doesn't care as much about outdoor antennas anymore, that they'd give you a lame answer about the HD7694 being too powerful. The HD7694 is the minimum you need for...

Tribune Company already dropped the 9pm news, & they did not renew their broadcast agreement with the Cubs, so that won't even be seen on WGN-TV next year. The new Tribune is looking to take...

It's a good idea to have an antenna for subchannels that DirecTV does not carry. Most of the time, it's the national diginetworks, but some local TV stations have their own programming on one of...

The only thing I have heard that 7.2 (not sure if there'll be a 7.3) that the .2's on ABC O&O stations will be locally produced content. Not sure what all that will be, but I'm sure news & weather...

It looks like you're mainly interested in Chicago stations, & not so much for WOCK-CD. I say go with the Winegard HD7694. If you're interested in using the same antenna for FM stations, more than...

If you're only wanting Chicago stations, then here's a few recommendations: Winegard HD7694 & Antennacraft HBU33. Those 2 are good as long as WOCK-CD on RF 4 is not important. I don't know if you...

I eventually did that, & I got it to get off of 60.1. Thing is that my HDTV is only 2 years old, and Insignia 26" 1080p TV. I don't know the model number at this time, but it's an ok TV for now. ...

I went to see if Escape was on 60.2 or 60.3, & my TV locked up on 60.1, like it did with WYCC a couple of months back. If they're adjusting the bandwidth on 60.1 to add 60.3, then why is it locking...

Call it what you want, but there is in fact a null in that direction, but it's a soft null. The only reason isn't furthered nulled in that direction, is because they're operating the translator on...

They also have to protect WCCU Champaign, IL as well. That's why the signal is also nulled in that direction, but not as much, since WCCU nulls theirs to the north, for when WCIU was still on RF 26.
