Sorry guys, been away for a bit.
I like the looks of that Clearstream, it's looks impressive and I suspect would outperform the old bat wing.

It did have a Winegard III, but it's very old and the coax is shot, plus stripped gears, so I removed it and had to do some roof...

It took me some digging but I found it. It's WTBS out of Atlanta. Looks pretty weak at 15kw. Doubt I'll be able to get that reliably. I did try it as an analog channel too with no luck. Too bad, I...

Sorry, this is DIY. I believe the HBU55 is DOA. About to try to get the HD7698P tuned in. Have to use it until I can get it back down. Those were new cables with factory ends.
