Tv Antennas and Tv Reception

Because the house has brick and metal siding the antennas will be mounted above the roof.
This recommendation is based on Current Plus Pending Applications Included of the Digital Channels tvfool radar report.
For the best do it once installation. Install a Winegard HD7696P antenna aimed at about 170 degree magnetic compass for reception of USA and Canada digital stations/channels.
And a Winegard HD7694P antenna aimed at about 67 degree magnetic compass for the reception of Canada digital stations/channels.
Here is how to aim antennas ,
The HD7696P antenna will have a Winegard AP8700 preamp.

The HD7694P antenna will not have a preamp.

The coax wiring will be separate from each antenna to the location of the Tv.

And at the location of the Tv will be a remote control A/B antenna switch from MCM electronics #32-4425. The remote control A/B antenna switch is also available at saveandreplay.

Here are places to buy antennas and etc. , , , , , , .

Antenna rotors are Not channel surfing friendly , must wait for antenna to rotate. A/B switch is channel surfing friendly , press the buttons on the remote to change antennas.
