I have the two piece version of the CM4228 as well as WineGuard VHF antenna combined with a $3 antenna combiner and I get 11/55/58 no problems (and the boston channels if I rotate the antenna's.)
I've never managed to even get a peep out of 8-1 but I do get A signal from NH, VT and Boston, I'm at/around 1400'.
Thanks for your input JasonAndreas:
I am in West Springfield and couldn't get DTV11 to come in with a roof installed UHF CM4228 w/rotator. I took your advice and for kicks tried my old "rabbit ears" placed in my basement where my home theater is located and voila I got DTV11. Today I went out and bought a combiner. Presently I receive DTV11 (22-1), DTV55 (40-1), DTV33 (3-1, 3-3 [HDTV]), and
DTV58 (57-1[HDTV]) but no Boston or NH stations. I am not sure of my elevation. Little tips can go a long way, thanks again....now if we can only get WGGB and WWLP to broadcast in HDTV...
