Getting more information. Are you getting CBS? apparently the Radio Tower in Warren is causing problems for reception of CBS? What Antennae and other equipment are you using?

I live in Basking Ridge (near Lyons) and on the back side of the "Millington Quarry" hill. With a $60 Radio Shack antenna in the attic I get all of the New York stations at high signal levels (75-92). It did take a little while to get the antenna situation working...with special attention to the quality/bandwidth of splitters, preamp, coax connectors, etc.

You should be able to get all fine stations in basking Ridge. I watch them down here in central Bucks County, Pennsylvania, over a 65 mile path.


The STEALTHtenna is a VHF/UHF combo antenna, but has most of its gain on VHF - it's not really well-suited to UHF reception. (All of the NYC DTV stations are on UHF frequencies.)


Try either the Channel Master 3021 4-bay screen, or CM 3022 suburban UHF yagi for better results. If signals are weak, add the CM 7775 UHF preamp. That should be all you will need.


For more info, go to www.projectorexpert.com and check out the articles on DTV reception.
