I should at that the three Roanoke stations to my north (17, 18 and 30) do not come in with my current configuration unless I climb a ladder and turn one antenna. Those are the stations I refer to...

I'm actually combining two Antennas Direct antennas (a C2 and a C2V) pointed about 70 apart with excellent results. The VHF element is meaningless as all the stations I receive are UHF here. The...

Smile PBS problem solved

I've solved my PBS problem. I now receive channel 32 (virtual channel 26) 100% of the time. I bought a new (better?) combiner and went back to combining a C2 and a C2V, one pointed straight at...

I used to live in Morrisville in a rented townhouse very near you. Almost all your major stations will come from the towers in Auburn. The notable exceptions are channel 25 (WUNC, virtual channel...

Good luck, Sue. If you bought a C2V I think you'll be happy with the results.

I have the Antennas Direct Clearstream C2V that GroundUrMast recommends. Even when I had it indoors it surprised me by pulling in stations in the yellow (requiring an attic antenna) and even in the...

I live maybe 15-20 miles from you in Eden. Reception is surprisingly decent in this area. Technically you're in the Roanoke-Lynchburg market but you may find stations from the Greensboro or even...

The picture above is my C2 mounted on the wall in my old apartment in Raleigh. No special hardware is needed. A hook you'd use to mount a framed picture or a lamp should work. There is an optional...

For me the best way to find out the ideal spot for an antenna is old fashioned trial and error. A location change of even a few feet can sometimes make a difference. Since you're indoors to begin...

When I was limited to indoor antennas I tried a lot of small ones. The best results I've had, by far, in three locations were with the Antennas Direct C2. Yes, I think the C2V will do better for...

It is really unlikely that an indoor antenna is going to pick up WSOC-TV at all. It's deep in the pink. Pink requires a roof antenna. I have an Antennas Direct C2V (originally a C2) which I used...

Yeah, let's just have an incorrect database because someone doesn't like a channel. That's a great idea. #smh

I used to live in Franklin Co. to your northwest. The signal strengths for channels 10, 11 and 12 were lower than what you show. The VHF add on ADTech mentions will definitely work for channel 11...

After spending way too much time on my roof today I made the decision to stick with the C2. The DB8e, particularly with the two panels pointed in the same direction, does have more gain. You can't...

I will repeat my suggestion of the Antennas Direct C2V. It is far less directional than bigger antennas and you have a lot of fairly strong signals in your area. Lots of gain isn't what you need...
