    Spacing on stacked wineguard high bands

    Yes, we tried both models at my friends house almost 70 miles from DC & the Antennacraft is noticeably better than the Winegard. Do you have any FM stations around 95 Mhz near you?

    Spacing on stacked wineguard high bands

    Have you considered the Antennacraft Y10-7-13? It is slightly better than the YA-1713. Also, do you have any FM stations around 95mhz within 10-15 miles?

    Need recommendations for a long range OTA antenna.

    You could also try a Radio Shack FM trap to help bring in channel 11. FM 99.9 is less than 5 miles away & it's second harmonic falls right on top of VHF 11. You can easily return the trap if it doesn't help. You can also try the more directional Antennacraft Y5-7-13 to increase gain & reduce...

    Hope Antennacraft doesn't discontinue it. Winegard just discontinued the YA-1713, so now it's the only game in town.

    Nice pix!! Glad to hear of your success!! Not sure how important channel 13 is to you??(good late night offerings & a few Ravens games not carried on 9) Unfortunately 13 is only beaming about 6000 watts in your direction. Their directional antenna limits power output to the west due to an...

    At your distance, I doubt you will see anything on VHF with the 4251.

    Do you have the FM trap engaged? The full band antenna is getting a huge dose of FM from 105.5 whose 2nd harmonic falls right on top of channel 13. The antennas being so close is likely not helping either. If in your shoes, I would replace the RCA combo antenna with the lightweight/low windload...

    Parabolic OTA Antenna

    What is your elevation?

    Going OTA

    Is the antenna mounted as high as possible in the attic? You may be able to improve performance by trying different locations in the attic as well.

    Going OTA

    Excellent choice!!

    What's a guy gotta do?

    The best bang for the buck antenna that will supply both a robust VHF & UHF signal is the HBU-22. You could use the more expensive ANT-751 if aesthetics are a concern & achieve just about the same level of performance. The ANT-751 should be available locally at most Walmart & Best Buy stores...

    Can a satellite dish interfere with an OTA signal?

    Even the most directional antenna can perform well from the back with a relatively clean /multipath free signal to work wth.

    ANTENNA POINTING ISSUES

    Like Jim said, it is not so much aim, but quite possibile the antenna is sitting in a null spot for that particular frequency. A few inches up or down will likley solve your issue. This is quite common with digital TV, especially with the change of seasons when leaves drop off trees & change...

    Wish they would get rid of the "Live Well" channel instead.
