All, thank you for the helpful info! Big Help!
Update - Was able to rescan and get Cozi which here is an NBC subchannel. Reception is sketchy. Goes from 0 to 63 in seconds. Unfortunately, the guide never populates for any Vegas local channels. Not sure why that is.
For both brands of rabbit ears, similar results for both. Almost zero reception non amplified both plugged directly into tv as well as plugged into receiver antenna in Definitely pickup most locals with amplification/booster plugged in with power. Cozi is sketchy and only came thru after placing rabbit ears in window seal. Not a pretty setup! I don't understand the 'multipath' issue in prior post, but assuming I need booster to pick up any locals at all perhaps the issue here has nothing to do with multipath?
I'm onto researching exterior antenna, and want something reliable that picks up the VHF 4+PBS which the rabbit ears with booster picks up well with pixelization happening a few times a day. But for NBC also want 'low band' and pick up NBC's 2 subchannels including CoziTv. I hope whatever reliable antenna I can find that works great for Vegas, I can hire a handiperson to install cause I definitely cannot handle. Seems best would be something that mounts ontop of my satellite, like the old Terk I had for many years before digital came along and blew it out of the water. Haven't heard of a digital version of the Terk. That way would not need to run new wires into the house and seems more efficient instead of poking more holes in the home. If anyone has any advice, would be greatly appreciative.
