I've had a few requests for info on these antennas so I figured I would post how this antenna helped me get CBS and where I purchased it. I live about 40 miles Northeast of the Atlanta transmitting towers and have a 2000' "foothill" in front of my house in the direction of the Towers. I installed a 120" Radio Shack VHF/UHF antenna with a ChannelMaster Titan 7777 in my attic and received NBC, ABC & Fox with 60%+ signal strength but 0% on CBS. I then tried a ChannelMaster 8 Bay Bowtie & 60" Wineguard both in my attic and on my roof with no luck. An installer suggested ordering a channel specific antenna so I said what the hell. He ordered me a Blonder Tongue Laboratories BTY-10U UHF Antenna (Cut for Ch. 14-19) and Channel Master Spartan 3 0071 Pre-Amp. Hooked it up in my attic and immeadiately 100% signal on CBS. "Reversed" a low loss splitter and tied both antennas together. Maybe this antenna could help someone who is having trouble receiving a specific channel. I believe they also make UHF/VHF antenna. Mine was purchased through Dow Electronics out of Tampa. Blonder Tongue website is:
