Even pulled in a Myrtle Beach station the other morning. So in the right spot you should have no trouble with Raleigh stations in Cary. I've got it indoors, second floor, on a bookshelf at eye-level pointed in the Greensboro direction, connected to the amplifier, then into the house coax central location and out to all the house TV jacks. One key for me was that I could measure signal strength with my PC TV tuner (HD Homerun software). Slight movements made huge differences in signal, like leaning it a few inches left or right. Do you have any way of looking at signal strength?
Well, it's an interior wall, downstairs, and it's a townhouse so a shared wall. I wasn't expecting much, but with PBS coming in so perfectly and not being that far from the garner tower, I figured It would work better than this. The thing I find interesting is that if I put it at various spots on the wall I ONLY get the PBS, if I have it resting on the wall mount BEHIND the TV, it picks up 11 stations, but the garner channels don't have any signal.

I also noticed changes in positioning did change the SnR quite a bit, but once I found the spot, I haven't touched it in 2 months.
I'd love to do this, but I really don't know how to do it in my situation (the townhouse).
I'm going to take it upstairs and try it on that TV this weekend and see how it is there.
All this being said, this is my first ever antenna so I'm totally green when it comes to this lol.
