I live in Charlotte, less than 30 miles from the 4 digital transmitters available in this area. I just bought a Terk TV-42 because it installed right on my satellite dish (so I didn't need to mount yet another mast on my roof and it could use the existing dish wiring). The reception is spotty at best for analog stations, but all I really wanted was to bring in the digital stations. Thought I was okay, signal strength usually above 70%, and not too much digital dropout. Then it rained today. Lost 2 of the 3 digital stations that broadcast during the daytime. Can't have an antenna that drops the ball every time it rains! I figure I need a stronger antenna, but don't know enough about them to pick one; just got more confused when I visited the Channelmaster and Winegard web sites. Went to the "antennaweb.com" web site, and it says that doggone Terk should be adequate! The TV-42 is supposed to be "powered" by the satellite receiver, but evidently not enough. It's pretty flat here, no obstructions between me and the towers. I'd like one that would install with a minimum of hassles, like the Terk. Attic installation is out. Any suggestions?

I would try the Channel Master (4221 or 3021) four bay bow-tie antenna. About 20"W x 4"D x 39" H. Info at: http://206.155.192.130/pages/u1.htm
