I would like to rig myself with OTA_HDTV.Here is the Theoritical Parthttp://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...8d1745ac50afc6
(Select CURRENT and DIGITAL)
but Canada is to pull the plug on analog on August 2011 so you may take a look at PENDING and DIGITAL)I have no care for analog signal
.For the more practical
My next neighbour has a VHF/UHF antenna (Yagi) 30 feet above the ground from wich 7 of the longest VHF branches are gone. From the look, it’s a Channel Master with a rotor wich is controlled by a rotary dial inside next to the TV.
With the neighbour’s setup, I can get ALL the green and yellow channels listed on the tvfool report (CURRENT – DIGITAL) but not in a single position. I need to use the rotor.
Using a home made UHF coat hanger antenna, I can get some of the US Channels at 167° but none of the local channels at 268°
As I can count on ACTUALLY and PREDICTED broadcasters on channels below 14 ( 14 NBC, 12 CTV, 13 ABC), I guess I should get both VHF and UHF signals. Is that right?Do you have any solution to suggest?
I dont’ want too much trial and error so this is why I seek for help. It may be anything from a single VHF/UHF antenna or a combination of more then one antennas.Also, is it common to get two antennas each in different directions rather than have a single antenna with a rotor?
Thank you very much
