Not entirely sure. My guess based on records I can dig up is that the batwing was used for the channel 12 digital signal during the transition.
FCC law prohibits HOAs from allowing reasonable antennas. Not sure about landlords, but do some Googling.Hello Everyone,
I live in Woodstock, GA, 30188, in the Hudson Woodstock apartment complex. My apartment of one level is on the ground floor of three floors in the building, and all of my windows are West facing. In that direction as well as around me are either three level apartment buildings and trees that reach just above the apartment buildings, or the rest of the building around me.
I purchased a RCA "amplified ultra-thin signal-finder HDTV multi directional" antenna with a 65 mile range, but am only getting ten OTA channels no matter where I move the antenna in the living room or kitchen areas of my apartment. The built in signal meter shows a maximum signal strength most of the time except in a few places. The channels that I am getting I am getting perfectly, such as 14-1 ION TV, 14-2 QUOBO, 14-3 IONPLUS14-4 SHOP, 14-5 QVC, 14-6 HSN 47-1 TLMD, 57-1 WATC DT, 57-2 WATC00, and 57-3 ALIEN, at least the ones that I have checked.
Unfortunately, I am not allowed by the management to put up any kind of antenna outside in any way, on the roof, outside on the ground, etc.. Therefore any indoor antenna or outdoor antenna must be placed inside. Furthermore, it appears that there are no other Internet and TV providers except for Xfinity, possibly having secured an exclusivity contract with the apartment management, as the Xfinity Internet that I have at the apartment comes in through a coax port in the walls. I have noticed a number of dishes up on the high and lower level roofs of the apartment buildings in my complex, but I am not sure if those are grandfathered in, or if they were what the apartment complex had for TV service previously.
I would like to get the main network channels, such as what I got at my previous residence, 69-1 The CW, COMET 69-3, CBS 46-1, ABC 2-1, FOX 5-1 or signals belonging to the networks in good or great quality, in addition to what I have now if possible, and any other channels would be a bonus, like PBS.
My TVfool report is here:
Is there any other report I need to provide for someone here to help me? fromprohibitj g
Is there anyone in the same apartment complex as me, or in Woodstock who can help me or can anyone give me any tips on antennas, outdoor or indoor, to purchase and place indoors, or anything else that I can do?
The tvfool.com database has not been updated in several years so is more or less useless as a signal tool. You'll need to generate a Signal Search report using the rabbitears.info site:
In Athens the WSB signal strength & decode S/N ratio took a step change upward earlier this week....so may be worth another re-scan, on the chance that it will help your situation. I am crossing my fingers it is a permanent change, and not just a temporary re-location to a different tower as they did during the repack.Thanks to you guys for responding. I have been a tivo user for over a decade, so yes, I've tried every trick I know of to rescan., etc., etc.
Looks like I've just become a CBS viewer now. Their weather forecast is easy to watch anyway...
I came here to post about something else, checked the past month of activity first, and saw this. Thank you Trip! I gave up on WGTV a year ago. I have a VHF antenna aimed straight at Stone Mountain JUST to receive WGTV, but stopped getting it a year or two ago (literally, zero lock) and had given up. Gradually I've been replacing all my Tivo record programmings with WPBA 30, which is the second tier PBS in Atlanta so gets their programs late if at all. Last week I started getting a glitchy signal, an improvement at least. Glad to understand why.
