Sure. Just put up an all channel antenna that's 10' wide and about 15' long, add a pre-amp that can handle both weak and strong signals, and add a ham rotor. Put all that on a tower that clears all...

They were running "real" programming as of last evening instead of the test loop. I watched "The Investigators" from 5 to 6.

I didn't check the details, but it was full screen, low resolution.

It doesn't matter which way you do it, either will perform nearly the same. Make both cables the same length and give it a try. Keeping the cables as short as you can before amplification is...

You'd actually need a time machine since all the analog stations in Tijuana signed off a year and a half ago. I haven't see Doc Brown around here.

Throw your little Winegard back in the returns pile. It's way too small to work well in the Bangor ME area. It doesn't work because your NBC station operates on channel 2 which usually requires a...

The HLSJ would pass FM almost completely unattenuated (perhaps a fraction of a dB). If you elect to go for that low VHF channel, you will still need the full band FM filter.

Hey, I just ball-parked it until the distance and heading was within a quarter of a mile. Didn't take more than 20 seconds to get in the area, figured that was close enough for FM.

It means something has failed. Connection, balun, cable, preamp, etc.

There is neither a requirement nor a reception benefit to grounding an antenna in the attic.
