I like Bill Kelly spent a lot of time and effort to finally get a stable digital signal. I live in Thoroughgood which is known for poor reception and I believe that Birdneck also has problems as well as the North end of the Beach.


I believe that my dreaded drop outs were due to multipath interference which is similar to trailing ghosting in an analog signal. My final solution was to horizontal stack two cm yagis on a chimney mount with a horizontal rotator along with a cm 7775 pre amp. I now have a steady signal; however, I have to adjust the rotator each day to get the best stable signal. I even need to adjust the antenna when watching different stations in our area even though they all are coming from Driver (except 2-1,2-2,2-3,2-4,2-5).


I could not find anyone in are area who was particularly knowledgeable about antenna selection for digital signals and I learned a lot from the hd hardware thread. Glenn at www.atechfabrication.com was helpful with the concept of multipath and I purchased the horizontal stacking fittings and fiberglass pole from him. The products were well made but somewhat pricey for antenna equipment.


If you would like to talk with me my pager is 475-9197.
