Again, the terrain blocks the signal even before it gets to the TREES.
Thanks for all your help, Rabbit. I will print some of these images and give them to him.

FWIW: He is a 78 year-old lunch buddy that lives a couple miles north of me. He had some analog reception back in the day but hasn't bothered with any of it since digital. But as your posts show, channel 51 was the strongest and he said he did used to get it.

Just recently, another lunch buddy gave him a small antenna and a good length of coax to try out. I told them both about this site and how well it can predict signal strength no matter where you live.

So now we know that he's out of luck, at least with this small antenna he has.
Everything from the roof down to the TVs was installed new in 2011.
