It can also be confusing that the channels no longer correlate for actual VHF and UHF. Whereas WBTV was analog Channel 3 on Low VHF, it is now actually UHF Channel 23 for digital. But they still use...

The G1483 Hoverman antenna was made by Antennacraft and used to be sold at Radioshack. Hard to find anywhere now except maybe Summit Source. An alternative to traditional 4-bay and 8-bay designs.

Well you should be able to receive WSOC and WCCB easily from the Smith Mtn. translators. Which is ABC and CW. But the other networks may be a bit more challenging. And yes, CBS, NBC, and FOX from...

I agree with SpencerKarter that WYFF-4 should air the 4th hour of the Today Show, with KLG and Hoda. Instead they tape delay the 3rd hour and preempt the 4th. I am fortunate to be able to view it out...

I am sure you are quite correct. But those Channel Master dist amps are well reviewed when used in the proper application.

Interesting from Valdese that TV Fool report indicates stronger reception from WLOS RF13 rather than WSPA RF7. Because in many areas WSPA is easier to receive, and WSPA is much closer than WLOS. Must...

Sometimes a preamp will help, other times it may do more harm than good. But if you have an outside antenna with a long cable run, and some splitters, then an amp may help maintain or stabilize the...

From Valdese, you should easily receive the translators for WSOC and WCCB. But to receive the Dallas signals from Charlotte, and perhaps some Greenville-Spartanburg, you will need a good high gain...

I prefer NBC Nightly News or the CBS Evening News. I think they retired Diane Sawyer on ABC to appoint David Muir as a lure for younger viewers. He is not yet an elder statesman anchor like Tom...

WSOC and WAXN are on the same tower. But WAXN is lower power and uses a directional antenna, whereas WSOC is full power and omnidirectional. I believe WAXN has to avoid adjacent channel interference...

WBTV big reveal could come tomorrow or most likely by Monday. No advance publicity so far but hopefully a nice upgrade. I believe the February ratings period begins tomorrow.

In Rowan County, you will also be able to receive Greensboro channels. So you may want to see if you can find a sweet spot that will aim the antenna midway between Charlotte and Greensboro. You may...

Those panel style antennas may not be the best choice. And the noise figure on the built in amp is a bit high. And combining antennas can be problematic. But good luck.

I would get a F4500 or F5300 Samsung plasma if they are still available. Both are very nice and were reasonably priced.
