I get CH 3 but it is sensitive to interference and weather.
W-G HD-769x Series are Hi-VHF+UHF Combo's with minimal Gain in Lo-VHF (Ch2-6+FM) Band.
W-G HD-8200 (and HD-7084) are their ALL BAND Combos (Ch2-69). Solid Signal also offers a Clone of the HD-8200.
Earlier post seems to say you live in/near Lynchburg, within the Roanoke DMA.
Roanoke DMA Report shows THREE Stations in Lo-VHF Band on REAL Ch3 (PBS), Ch4 [CBS, Duplicate to UHF Ch18 & Ch19] and Ch5 [ABC, Duplicate to Hi-VHF Ch13] You SHOULD already be receiving Ch18 (or Ch19) and Ch13 and wouldn't NEED Ch4 and Ch5 [can you confirm???]:
Although NOT shown in the above Roanoke DMA Report [I'm looking at TVFool for downtown Zipcode], there is a PBS Station on Ch11 (WVPT) that you MAY be receiving if you have a Hi-VHF Antenna with significant amount of Gain....can you confirm??? Would this fulfill your requirement for PBS if you can receive it??? Or are they broadcasting significantly DIFFERENT schedules and you would prefer to receive BOTH???
YES, you would need a HUGE Antenna for PBS on Ch3.....but before we can recommend a suitable Antenna(s), we first need to see a link to your TVFool Report [WebAddress URL at top of Browser after enter Location].
What is your current Antenna(s) situation???? Indoor vs Outdoor??? Would a ROTATOR be acceptable or are you looking for a (probably) multiple Antenna solution???
It also helps if you provide FMFool Report for your Location to check on second Harmonic Interference to Ch11 and Ch13 in Hi-VHF Band.
