I have a Channel Master CM-4428HD mounted 30' AGL. What pre-amp do I need to receive stations that are 50+ miles away?
But what do you mean "traffic is too heavy?" I'm confused by that statement too
I mean I have traffic come by the house here too yet I dont have issues picking up a 72mile distant station
that should work
now looking at some info Fox Detroit is on VHF (RF7) whereas the antenna you are going to hook this to is UHF only. While it will work somewhat OK getting VHF High if that is the channel you are having issues with amplifying it might not help and a VHF/UHF antenna would work better
Their website says it gets both and Fox 2 comes in good most of the time, except when traffic is too heavy.
Pick up FREE Digital TV with Channel Master digital HDTV Antenna CM-4228HD for the best TV antenna reception
they are contradicting themselves. IN the specs it says
Receives channels 14 thru 69
as does solid signal...The highest gain Channel Master UHF antenna! Perfect for long range Digital and Analog UHF reception.
Like I say a UHF only antenna CAN get VHF Hi but it is usually at a hindered signal versus a VHF antenna. When Minneapolis did the DTV conversion Fox & NBC went back to their analog spots (9 & 11) and my U120 antenna could only pull a 73-76 signal on the TV. I'm 29 miles from the towers. Switched to a combo and now they are at 100%
Heck my VHF only 1913 picks up UHF too at a low signal..even though its pointed 180 degrees away (that antenna is aimed for a VHF only station 72 miles away...only channel in that market)
