I posted this in the big huge global thread, but thought I might get some good advice here from the locals..
Here's my TVFool info:http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...9fbe701af93ba4
Specifically, I'm in the valley just off Eastview Dr. (near bob jones high school).. all the local broadcast channels are about 12 miles EAST from the house. However the CW (I'm a Smallville fan...
) is located WEST in almost the opposite direction and is 30 miles away.
If I've been reading these forums correctly, the big broadcast stations to the EAST (except maybe PBS) are all strong enough in our area to not really have to worry too much about how to pick them up. It's the CW that I'd like to try and get as well
however. I am not against attic placement (2story) if I have to.
Would a highly direction antenna
be best here pointed towards the CW tower (@ 311deg), and would such a highly directional antenna still pick up all the other broadcast stations coming from the other direction (all within 83-93 deg)? Or am I just out of luck?
Oh a whim I picked up a bowtie antenna from radio shack today. If I understand correctly, all the 83-93deg broadcasters look strong enough to pick up with a generic antenna... It'll do for now until I can figure out the best choice for all of them plus CW...
I see the Winegard PR-8800 8-Bay is available from Summit around $45 plus shipping.. It seems to have the strongest pickup in the channel-14 range from EV's Best Top Rated thread (linky linky
)... not sure how directional that one is though and if its the best choice for me..
Thanks so much!!
