So is it not just me, but Winegard really did spec these antenna for channels 7-69 at one time? I notice now they say they are only for 14-69. I do recall they said they may not perform as well on 7-13, but now I see no mention of it at all on their website.
My SS-1000 is connected via about 20' of RG-6 to a Channel Plus distribution amp which is then split several times to feed the various TV's in my house. Right now I'm able to get the digitals from 2, 7, 9, 28, 32, and 48. I'm not seeing anything on 20, but that's a good 60 miles away and I never watch that station anyway.
IMHO, the biggest problem with DTV is there's no way to adjust the antenna until AFTER you lock in the station. Once I got KWWL added then I could adjust the antenna to peak the signal.
