Those are very good antennas. Yagi's are excellent as well.
Yours is an example of why these stupid rules governing "white areas and b curvature signal grades ( is that right?) are a load of crap.Wouldn't work here because we have channels on Lo VHF and Hi VHF and we're 50 miles from the tower with mountains in the way. My antenna is 14 feet long.
SIXTY FEET? Wow! I've mounted as high as 30 feet. That was without a safety harness. Pretty stupid, yeah. But I had plenty on which rto hold and I had both feet hooked into the tower structure and I braced my upper body at all times.That looks really nice. Wish I could have an OTA setup that easy. Living 65 miles LOS from Birmingham, I doubt that would work here.
I have a 60' tower that is about 25 years old, had the antennas, cable, and roter replaced in 2009, lighting took the whole thing out in summer of 2013, and the guy that climbed that tower to install that equipment is out of business now, can't find anyone else to do it, and I sure as hell ain't climbing 60'. So, I just get locals from Dish only now.
Yep. Two antenna farms in CLT. About 30 degrees apart for me.Those are very good antennas. Yagi's are excellent as well.
I have a friend north of here who has 4 of them in his attic. Has two pointed toward Charlotte( CLT). Two pointed at Greensboro( GSO)...He receives all locals in good to excellent quality from both DMA's.
GSO transmitters are 40 to 50 miles distant over relatively flat terrain. Hence the reason he gets those fairly well.
CLT's are closer but a bit scattered.
Isn't Kansas and that part of Missouri flat? North Alabama is very hilly and rugged not quite mountainous like East Tennessee, but plenty hilly to degrade a signal. Might be worth a try though. Thanks for the report at that distance.I live 65 miles from Kansas City and I get very good signal on almost every channel and I have mine in the attic.
I will not be affected by CBS, not in an O&O market. I am not pleased that Showtime is going away. I expect they will be back sooner rather than later due to NFL football, the demand that will have to be met in those markets, especially where OTA reception is not practical or non existent in those areas.
i'm in the DFW TV market so i will lose KTVT and KTXA which are both CBS O&O. this is the first local TV station dispute for the DFW area dish customers since the Belo (then owner of WFAA, which ended up acquired by Gannett late last year) and Fox/New Corporation (owner of KDFW and KDFI) in October 2010, luckily both were resolved before the channels could go dark. unfortunately. these channels will go dark as Dish and CBS are in unfriendly terms and isn't CBS already suing CBS or have they not filed any lawsuits yet.
