Maybe the Mods can move these 2 threads into one.I finally figured out that the "DMA" you are in is HARLINGEN, TX (East Coast of TX, just above the Border) so I could look that up in www.rabbitears.info Market Listings. FOX/CW Networks share KFXD on Ch20, which is your weakest (NM = 30.9 dB) Major Network and COULD be difficult to receive Indoors. Since you have numerous VERY STRONG UHF Stations, you should NOT use an Amplified Antenna.
Ch13 is the ONLY Hi-VHF channel listed in the GREEN and YELLOW bands in your TVFool Report...and with NM = 57.8 dB is going to blast through pretty much ANY Antenna you pick...even if advertised for UHF-ONLY.....so you can use pretty much ANY or the BETTER NON-AMPLIFIED UHF Antennas listed in the fol. Thread:
PS: Although there are SEVEN 100 kW FM Stations within 20-miles of your Zipcode location (per www.FMFool.com), Ch13 is strong enough to NOT be affected.
I provided the fol. answer(s) for "Best" UHF+Hi-VHF" Antenna:
Here is a revision for UHF (Only)...and very strong Hi-VHF channels that are going to come in no matter what:
The Winegard FL6550A did not pull in the FOX HD 67.1 either, not inside or outside, it did pull in many more channels, 36, than the Mohu Leaf. You say channel 20?? Not 67.1??
I will keep trying!
I would try a directional bowtie with reflector aimed at all the 280 deg +/- channels. The reflector would probably get rid of the other FOX channel at 154deg. The reflector may help pick up the 31.5 mile channel without a preamp. There is a commercial one like this at Walmart, Antennas Direct DB4e Enhanced DB4 Long-Range Bowtie UHF DTV Antenna .60 miles............ So they say............ This has been difficult.
