So, using antennaweb, I see that I should get a "red" antenna...medium directional.
(I'm in San Jose, CA 95134

Will a "red" antenna (CM4228) also receive the signals from the colors that precede it (yellow and green i think)?

How precise does the pointing need to be? The stations I want are at 290 and 295...are they close enough that I wouldnt have to move the antenna?

THANKS!!!

Yes.

The 4228 has a beam width of about 20 degrees so as long as the stations are inside that, you're OK.

I'd point it at the red station and the yellows and greens should be OK.

The only other problem you may run into might be multi-path on the yellow stations which might require some directional tweaking.
