I did it myself. No rocket science here. Just point toward northern Suffolk (Driver specifically). My antenna is on a mast strapped to the chimney. WSKY's transmitter is near South Mills NC; you still shouldn't have any problem during fair weather.

The antenna can be installed like a sat dish on the side of the house or chimney, i was able to hide it from the street. I also have a DTVPAL-DVR, you can find them on ebay, no subscription and mine works great. Good Luck.
Being about 15 miles from Driver, using a preamp may be a little overkill, but may come in handy during weather events. Heavy rain will degrade a DTV signal big time! The preamp may help you pull in WUND (UNC TV) in NC.
Jccsup, do you live in a restricted neighborhood in Matthews? I can't imagine needing to hide an antenna there....
