You should not need a preamp with that antenna, especially since you're only about 16 miles from the WCCB-WSOC transmitters.. There's a good possibility that
you're experienceing front end overload of the receiver at times..
But you may have to do some tweaking of the alignment to get all the charlotte stations, as you're approaching a 90 degree reception spread to get all.
As far as being allowed to watch WSOC.. huh? The newsroom isn't the engineering staff..all they know is if the picture is there..
