With an antenna height of 16 ft, the info showed WGHP being 1-Edge with a noise margin of only 26 dB, but with a height of 30 ft, it was LOS with a noise margin of 36 dB.
I am not sure what all of that means to me other than LOS. haha
Can you help decipher?
If all you're looking to do is to make sure that you can receive all of the Triad stations, then your existing set-up with just an added bit of amplification may work. The amp will introduce some noise of its own, but if it boosts the signal enough to overcome signal loss from cable runs and overcome any noise introduced after the addition of the amp, it could be worth it.
It looks as though you're currently just below the signal strength needed for you to be able to lock in WGHP. (Or maybe you're getting a signal OK at the antenna, but it is being degraded before it reaches the tuner.) If you're already getting WMYV reliably, then you probably don't need all that much of a boost to bring in WGHP at your location.
Are you using an attic installation or an outdoor antenna?
If an outdoor antenna, is it a roof mount or a deck mount?
It looks to me as though Charlotte stations could be tough to get, unless you had very good equipment, maybe even a tower to mount the antenna on.
