diy db8

We have went ahead and decided to save money by getting rid of cable. I have since made a vertically stacked db8. I've used plans I found online which called for 7 in. whiskers with a 3 in. gap spaced about 5 1/4 in. and 1 1/4 in. phase lines. I was able to receive NBC and few other stations if directed NW and to SW few Richmond stations. However they were short lived and the signal became weak without any luck.

Based on my data sheet, can you recommend optimum diy measurements/ diy antenna design and best antenna direction for some stations. I honestly would be happy with any major network ( or more). Here is my location data.

Thank you and I appreciate your help.
