that i'm 67 miles fr the nearest ota hd antenna and that getting the network locals is going to be tricky. i'm also in a very low lying area at sea level. the guy seems to really know his stuff. he going to try to talk voom into authorizing a preamp and a large mast mounted antenna. like i said the installer seems on the ball. if i cant get a good picture on the locals then i'll have to cancel voom. what do you guys think? thanks.
