For my attic system in NY I'm using the ch. 6 folded dipole for VHF (6,7, 12 and 13) and the bowtie for UHF (26, 34 and 43). They're coupled with a cheap UVSJ, the kind that used to be included with...

ION is on channel 50 (UHF). You said elsewhere that to get that you lose WNYA, which is on ch. 13 (high VHF). Can you still get WTEN (26), WMHT (34) and WCWN (43)? Those are actual channels; they'll...

Yup. Like the Leap of Faith in Last Crusade. Or Ike jumping from the saucer in South Park 101: "It's my turn!" (foop). Of course nothing really bad happens if you guess wrong.
