I've given up on this antenna. Tried for hours last night to get all the networks, moving the antenna all over the room as far as the cable would allow and re-scanning. The only network (plethora of spanish and shopping channels aside) I consistently got was the CW. Fox came in most of the time. CBS sometimes, but usually it would catch the channel in a scan, but when I tried to view it, it would just be a few frozen pixels and then lose it altogether. With one placement I got the ABC affiliate and the picture/reception was fantastic. Was able to watch a football game and never had any problems, but then when I moved the antenna a few feet and re-scanned, the channel was gone and I never picked it up again with any placement. The reception on Fox for the Big10 Conference title game was pretty good, but went to hell the last five minutes, just becoming a jumbled mess of pixelization and cutting out. Totally unwatchable. But never in any scan did it ever pick up at all the NBC or PBS affiliates. So this just isn't adequate and I'll return it.
There is a channel with the call-sign LAFF that always came in, but with real bad synch issues. The audio was always about five seconds ahead of the video.
Would still like some recomendations on a good local installer for a roof or attic mounted antenna if anyone can guide me.
