Hi guys,To recieve the most OTA channels, do I need two antennas, one for HD and one for SD? What antenna is best for Marrero to receive as many channels as possible (BR - Biloxi, etc)?

 

I've been looking at this site 

http://www.dennysantennaservice.com/new-orleans-tv-stations.html

 

They have three antennas available, HD Stacker, EZ HD, and the Wineguard Flatwave found here  http://dennysantennaservice.com/winegard-fl6550a-flatwave-hdtv-antenna.html

 

Anyone ever use this site and/or its antennas?

 

 

I can mount outside and have a pretty clear line of sight from my roof North NorthEast to NO.

 

 

 

Thanks

I can answer the first question. An antenna is an antenna. Despite marketing hype there is no such thing as a special "digital" antenna. Just be sure you have one that pulls in both VHF (WYES broadcasts on channel 11-virtual channel 12) and the other stations are all transmitting on UHF (not their virtual VHF channels; e.g., WWL 4, WDSU-6 and WVUE-8).

Your best bet is to locate the local thread that covers your specific area and ask for assistance there. Include your TVFool plot so that reception can be estimated.


I'd skip the Denny's stuff personally. The indoor Winegard is widely available for as little as $30 at Home Depot. His little outdoor antenna is identical to the RCA ANT751R, and the "Stacker" is something between a mystery and a gimmick.


Until our TVfool plot is analyzed, do NOT go buy just any antenna. There's a method for getting you the most appropriate antenna and following it will avoid a lot of confusion and wasted time and wasted money.
