GREER, SC RECEPTION 29651: I currently live in Mauldin SC, in Greenville County zip code 29607. In the coming months I will be moving to Greer, SC in the area of zip code 29651 which is just across the Spartanburg County line. I am hoping to maintain reliable reception of the Charlotte TV signals I currently receive, which are WBTV, WCNC, and WJZY. And WSOC and WCCB often come in at night. With an attic antenna and preamp.
According to TV Fool, my signal strength should improve, from 74 miles to 65 miles. And I plan to install the antenna outside rather than in the attic. Can any experts comment on the Charlotte reception report for zip code 29651 and what stations I should reliably receive? Despite closer mileage, my concern is WCNC has more of a null to the west and I hope I can still receive that station. And perhaps a better chance of holding onto WSOC and WCCB during the day, as they can be received in parts of Spartanburg County. I do not expect any issues with any of the GSP stations, except possibly WLOS which can be problematic from Asheville.
The TV Fool does not list WSOC-34, but it does list the RF30 translator and WCCB-27 which should be similar to 34. And driving around Greer, I get strong car reception of 95.1, 96.1, 107.9, and 103.7 on the radio. Although apples to oranges, it may give you an idea. I looked at one house in 29651 and an indoor antenna got WBTV and WJZY, but not WCNC or WLOS. Hopefully an outside antenna will pull in WCNC as well. Experts please comment on 29651 reception as I am currently working with a realtor to purchase a new home in Greer or perhaps neighboring areas in southern Spartanburg County, such as Wellford, Lyman, or Duncan. Better real estate pricing and hopefully better Charlotte reception in these areas. Seeking opinion of TV Fool report for 29651 zip code if an expert could post the link and comment, thank you.
(Since I am concerned about the Charlotte stations, I posted in the Charlotte thread rather than Greenville-Spartanburg. And unfortunately I had technical problem and could not get TV Fool to post the link). Moderator please assist if this post should be moved to GSP forum, thanks.
