My testing suggested that height didn't really improve anything. I could get the same signal holding the antenna on the ground. Earlier this week, I had the massive antenna on a ~5ft pole and a ~120ft piece of coax connected to a tv so I could walk around the yard and the roof to try and figure out what was going on. I'd guess it is maybe 15ft up in the air right now. It's secured to the house but I basically just used stuff I had laying around so I could test this unconventional location. I have some pieces and parts coming so I can put together a more permanent mount.
The stations in that direction are WSWP, WVNS, WZTS and WOAY. I wouldn't mind getting WVNS in addition to WSWP but WSWP is all I *really* wanted. I'm using the Antennas Direct UHF/VHF combiner to add in a 42XG UHF Yagi pointed at WVVA, WLFB and WJDG. Of those, I can't seem to get WJDG.
