Snowy analog is not good enough, but you do need a better set up to test.


First you need to get that antenna outside.


Next you need a pretty clear signal path from your house to the signal source. Are there any buildings or large hills in the way.


Is the GS-2000 a uhf only antenna?

If it is, you might try receiving the WB, ch69.

The GS-2000 is both VHF and UHF (range of 55 miles with preamp). I can get KSWB on channel 69 UHF (watched Pokemon http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/tongue.gif ) and the picture is okay but still a bit garbled. I am assuming that once it's on the roof it'll be better but I am just curious how bad an analog signal can u get and still have a clear digital signal

From my experiance, the analog picture should be clear.


It does not have to be perfect, but no obvious ghosts.


The garbled audio would seem to be a tuning problem.

That I would not worry about.


I prefer a 100 mile plus antenna with no preamp.

Preamps are more helpfull with long cable runs,

garbage in, garbage out.

Okay I asked this question in another thread but I dont want it to get lost in the shuffle:


Okay I am in Escondido (San Diego CA) in the Del Dios neighborhood. I bought a Winegard GS-2000 antenna. I plan to have it installed on Friday. As a test I hooked up the antenna to a tv inside my home and I got all the analog channels but they were very snowy (I got Fox with the clearest picture but still sometimes garbled sound). So I am wondering will putting this antenna on my roof on a 5ft mast help and if I get snowy analog is that a strong enough signal to get digital??

Thanks for the replies
