I have included my TV fool assessment.


I'm about 28 miles out from the major broad sites. The problem is 3 of the channel's I want are in the high VHF band.


PBS = RF Channel 8

CBS = RF Channel 11

ABC = RF Channel 13


I was originally looking at Antenna Direct's DB2 or DB4. But I heard those are only meant for recieving the UHF band.


What would be proper for my application. I really want to be able to get CBS and ABC.


I need to roof mount since my attic has a radiant barrier.

you might consider the Winegard HD1080, a small VHF/UHF bowtie unit - may not have the gain if you don't have a clear line of sight to the towers.


otherwise, a Winegard HD7694 / 7695 / 7696 unit


These are the new series cut for VHF 7 up to UHF 52, so they are not as large as the older units cut for the very low VHF 2 thru 6 channels.

Kamiraa,


A HBU-22 would be a low cost alternative. It has sufficient gain on both UHF and high VHF for the broadcast towers in your location.


HTH.

I'm trying to stay away from the long 60 inch v shaped antenna's if possible. I'd pay more for it to be less of an eyesore on the house.

The "V" or "T" shape is what gets you the VHF channels.
