Any ideas? Do I need to use an outdoor antenna?
I live about a mile north of Lancaster airport, and there are lots of big trees surrounding me. I live in a 1 story apartment...
To get ABC from either Harrisburg or Philly, you will need a VHF antenna. WHTM uses RF channel 10 and WPVI uses RF channel 6. WHTM should a lot easier to get since they are hi-VHF.
WITF should be pretty easy to get since they are UHF using channel 36. WHYY in Philly uses channel 12 (hi-VHF).
Those little Terk antennas probably won't work well since you really need something with gain that is high and away from trees. Exterior antennas would be best. If you can get UHF and VHF antennas high into the air from your QTH and point them towards Hburg, you should have no problem. Terk antennas typically only work well with nearby mid-strength to strong signals.
