Philadelphia- successful installation. 49 channels.

Said he didnít need the 40 ft. ladder he brought.

49 channels for $260, without a monthly bill.

Donít know about analog stations. Lead goes into a Magnavox (TB100MW9) digital converter box w/o analog pass through.

Follow up: I was at the Sears web site. They had installation available through Crutchfield. Local antenna, attached to one or two TVís is $200. The Channel Master CM-3016 antenna was another $60. The next larger antenna (CM-3018) was $20 more. The installation for the CM-3018 is $300.

Crutchfieldís installation partner is Installs, Inc. The first 2 persons they put me in touch with claimed they could not do the job. They didnít have a 40 foot ladder. The second one rolled out here with 2 trucks, 6 persons at 8:15 AM. Then told me he couldnít do the job, he had to get that 40 foot ladder. Two weeks later, he still didnít have the ladder.

I told Installs and Crutchfield that either they get it installed, or I was cancelling the installation and returning the antenna. I followed up with an email to persons listed on the Installs web site.

Installation completed this morning.
