I am considering doing some things to my OTA antennae system, but there are many complications. I have a Channel Master combination antenna from the 70’s. It has 9 long pieces, 9 short pieces, and with a UHF piece on the end with V points out. I will attempt attaching a picture. Currently the Motorola rotator (Model# 9510A) is not functioning, possibly due to deteriorated wire. The former utility pole top part it is on has been used here for TV antennae for over fifty years, so I am concerned about breaking off if I put a ladder against it. I do not want to go any higher, it is above roof line and a power line goes between antennae and house. Distance from house to pole takes 100’ package of 300-ohm flat wire. Probably another 20 ft to 30 ft of wire to TV. Antenna was raised many years ago and reception went to pot then. I believed I repaired one of the ends that had dropped down at a spot weld with a metal screw. I have read that by raising even a few feet is how that affects reception on this forum several times. I have also tried a CM4221 Antennae many years ago and could not get anything on it, and still have. Tried it with RG59 and flat 300 to no avail, and walked it around the area. I have some RG6D5 (maybe 30 ft) copper clad steel wire from Dish 500 setup that I no longer use. I have some utility poles here with the bigger bottom ends of utility poles, but they have been lying on the ground for around twenty years. I believe they would be difficult to get up into the air to get in a hole because of their size and weight. Having not attempted to check their condition, I am not sure of them. Keep in mind that this is WV and that 100 ft of distance may give me 15’ of lift from the hill. Though the pole is almost 15 ft and plus antennae mast height. Lots of concerns for reception with hills, and trees. Because of the power lines I don’t want to go any higher or bigger antennae. In the past with old system the 300ohm cable provided less signal loss. http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id=1ddad4df398da3 I have considered building one of the twin type antennas, thinking they would not be as big or high, and better tuned. Channels Received: WNPB, occasional pixling, WTAE, occasionally able to watch: WQED, occasionally able to watch at various times. WPCW most generally pixilated. Antenna is presently pointed north. Zinwell Converter Model ZAT –970A (digital to Analog). RCA console type TV bought in 89, occasional picture dropout, unplug and restart. Needless to say with all these obstacles and located in a difficult to receive location. Possibilities?
