    Orby satellite TV antenna install. 38674 zipcode

    The one channel you now get it Virtual channel 12 - actually a high VHF channel 9. The "Ultimate" antenna is a UHF - I doubt that it will receive the PBS 12. Channel 12 is listed as FAIR on Rabbit Ears site: RabbitEars.Info Good Luck, Bob

    I have a Orby Satellite system - the receiver works great for OTA even when NOT connected to a satellite - just the antenna. Program Guide good for 5 days out. Can often find the receiver on sale for $50. Bob

    How far away can you get channels nowdays with an antenna?

    When pressed some of these antenna folks will say that they are talking about 150 mile diameter or in another words 75 miles in each direction - so 150 miles between two stations in opposite directions. Bob
