Would suggest doing a little research first. Go to antennasdirect.com, warrenelectronics.com, etc. and do some research. How much will an antenna, mounting hardware, cable, etc. cost.
Installing an antenna is not rocket science, people have been doing it for years. If you are somewhat handy (i.e you can figure out how to research and learn a little, accomplish things like changing a faucet, running a phone line, etc.) you could probably do this.
Not to say that their experience and the time saved is not worth it, but you will at least know what kind of markup they are really charging. I think earlier in this thread someone said they charged $100 for a $59 retail Channelmaster antenna.
Good to know how much the "free" install, or the "$30/hour one hour" is *really* costing you, and then do the math on if it is worth your while.
You aren't that far out, it shouldn't take 30 years of antenna experience to get something that picks up UHF channels at 22 miles out
