You can buy an RCA 19" tv set at Walmart for $74.95. Once you are done with it, you could likely sell it for the same price, or keep it for future use.

Can you run a brand new piece of coax up to the vhf antenna in the attic, and hook it directly to the vhf antenna only? Bypassing the UVSJ, and anything else.

Since it's on RF7, which is very...

If so, then what does: "It no longer appears" mean? No longer...

Well, the Menard's store has the internet page ad labeled as ANT752Z, and that's what I thought I was getting. However in the store, the box is labeled ANT752E.

I've never had one go bad, even 5 years later. Regardless, I'd email Kitztech and ask them if they'd repair it. If you haven't already done so.

Thanks!

Well, I finally was able to confirm with another person locally, that they see the exact same issue with this sub channel OTA.

I'm going to email Comet Tv now.

Looks good. However it's too closely mounted under your UHF antenna. They need to be at least 2 feet apart, and should really be 3 feet apart.

Otherwise they will interact in unpredictable ways.

Looks to me like you need a zero at the end of your 15 ft.

I'm sure you'll get something, but what, and how good are the...

You need a signal level no lower than 0 to have much hope of receiving it. Your -9.1, would need 9 db gain from an antenna, JUST to bring it up to zero level. You'd also need to be aimed directly at...

Did you mean ABC 5.1, WEWS-TV? That's 2Edge, (that means it "bounces off of two things" before getting to you) and 69 miles away from you.

That will take a large outside antenna, at least 30-40...
