Try the RCA ant111 non-amplified antenna just inside the bedroom window, no metal screen, no low-e glass, and let us know what you get. While you are set up to experiment, also try the flat panel antenna at the same location.
300ohm invented the narods. As him on this thread: http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=121956&page=59
Oh WOW! You have some serious restrictions to deal with at your location. Besides thinking of trying different heights for your antenna, you might try moving the antenna left or right. That's what I did with a temporary 2-bay antenna that was facing a tree line that made the wavefront very uneven. I positioned the antenna not only for max signal strength, but also for best presentation of the pilot signal (which the tuner needs to lock on) at the low end of the channel on...
Using the tvfool interactive map option enabled me to solve a reception problem. The problem was caused by a large cargo crane in the signal path. There were two transmitting antennas on one tower at different heights. One signal was OK, the other was not; sort of like a limbo dance bar in the way. http://www.avsforum.com/t/1340737/distribution-amp-problem/30#post_21023467 You should be able to see if the building is actually in the signal path using the map option as I...
Scott: Thanks for the tvfool report. Many of your stations are strong, but are 1 and 2Edge which means that the terrain between the transmitters and your location make the reception less reliable. The 4x4s would work, but I would prefer to use a metal tv mast supported by the eaves. The CS2 antenna is primarily a UHF antenna which is OK for all of the main network stations except for WJBK Fox on VHF-high channel 7. Combining two CS2s might be more trouble than it's...
Scott:What does the tvfool report for your mother-in-law look like? Please post it so that we are better able to help you.Enter her location info here for a report:http://www.tvfool.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29Copy and paste in your next post the bold type link near the top of the report.Is it the CVD508?http://www.avsforum.com/t/1172673/craig-cvd508-cecb
Yes, unless it is a special splitter designed to pass the DC power to the preamp.I suspect the leaves. Can you make a temporary setup of your antenna so that it has line of sight to the transmitters?
What VHF high antenna are you using?If you are using a UVSJ to combine the two, it is the right gadget. If you are using a splitter in reverse to combine the two, it is the wrong gadget.
When I made that complaint to the Sadelco tech, he taught me how to do this:The CH42 images in the other post aren't supposed to match, because they were made using different antennas at different locations.It doesn't bother me at all that the correction factor (+6.8 dB according to the Sadelco tech) isn't included when using the frequency mode because I'm only looking for the max signal when aiming an antenna. As the UK hams say when adjusting their transmitter for max...
Here is the tvfool report for Colorado Springs; using your exact address would be more accurate:http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d0559b07944b02aWhich ones?What Denver channel do you want? Is it KDBI on real channel 13, virtual channel 12.1?Is your antenna for UHF only, or can it pick up VHF?Yes, different models have different features. With my SONY I can add a channel after scan. Try entering 13 for the real channel or try entering 12.1.KDBI is a...
