Due to the CBS dispute I received a free DirecTV LCC. It came with the Winegard amplified flatwave antenna. I currently mounted this right at my gable vent, which is just vinyl material with an integrated bug screen. This side of the house faces east towards Philadelphia, however I have a few large pine and maple trees in the back yard as well. I installed an electrical outlet in the attic because those Winegard nitwits did not put F-connectors on either end of their USB powered inline amplifier, so everything is currenty connected and working. I get CBS in the 40-60% signal range depending on time of day and while there are some ocasional glitches and pixelation, I would like to try something better than the flatwave antenna. I'm attaching the radar output from tvfool. I'm really looking to get a more stable picture and one that may hold up in the weather so if the satellite signal is lost from snow or rain, we can still use OTA. I'd prefer to attic mount the antenna, and I know its just regular house wrap and plywood up in the triangular shaped attic space, as opposed to the foam pads they put on the house prior to our replacement of aluminum siding with vinyl siding a few years ago. I would also consider splitting this two ways, one into an SDR just for fun and to see what kind of signals I can find out there. I've been recommended the ANTOP 400-BV which is pretty expensive, the LAVA HD8008 and Channel Master CM-4228HD (which would definitely be attic mounted). Any experience with these? What about something that looks simular to the CM-4228HD but cheaper, like this Xtreme Signal HDB-8X () or any kind of look alike, or antenna with lots of elements on it. I realize I will probably never get WPVI channel 6, not many people can get that and unfortunately they will not be repacked higher up to a better frequency I think due to conflicting RF usage in alternate markets (Baltimore and New York). With the Flatwave I get channels 3,10,17,60,65 in the Philadelphia market.
