Reception Issues
 
I've bought a Winegard HD7694P and installed on my roof. My local particulars are

I'm trying to get the stations listed at 10 deg but all I am getting is a very fuzzy channel 3 almost anywhere I point the antenna. Looking north I have trees starting about 50 yards away and going for about 200 yards. After that it a clear shot at the mountain where the transmitters are. Is it the trees or am I missing something simple?

You might want to check your TV's channel setup to make sure the tuner is set to "air" mode instead of "cable" mode.

Thanks, that's probably the "something simple" I missed! I'll try it tonight.

What kind of TV set do you have? It appears as though the only transmission that you are receiving is one of CHAN's analog signals on Channel 3. If you don't want to purchase a new TV, then you should at least purchase a digital converter. This will allow you to pick-up the digital transmission from CHAN (RF22) plus the other very strong digital and analog transmissions covering your area.
