A Simple reception situation.

A 1 antenna solution.

The magnetic compass spread of receivable Digital Tv stations/channels without repeating any Tv stations channels of the group of Tv stations to the south west is 29 degrees.

The forward beam width of a Winegard HD7696P antenna is from 48 degree to 63 degree.
That more then covers the 29 degree spread of the group of Tv stations to the south west.

The signal gain of the HD7696P antenna is more then what is required for reception.

Above The Roof install a Winegard HD7696P antenna with a Antennas Direct CPA-19 preamp.

For 1 Tv connected use no splitter.

For 2 Tv's connected use a , HFS-2D , 2 way splitter.

For 3 Tv's connected use a , HFS-3D , 3 way splitter.

Aim the antenna at about 220 degree magnetic compass direction.

Here is how to aim antennas ,

As always the starting aim direction is the -> starting aim direction.

I fully confident that the antenna will receive the Tv stations with the antenna aimed at about aimed at 220 degree magnetic compass , if some fine tuning of the aim of the antenna is required then turn the antenna left and right to find the aim direction for best reception.

Looking at the Digital Tv stations/channels list , I see that the Digital Tv stations channels from the top of the list down to and including KSMI-LP to be received.

Here are some Above The Roof antenna mounts , , , ,

Buy the ronard antenna mounts at solidsignal by typing the word ronard in the solidsignal search box.

Here are some places the buy antennas and etc. , , ,

As always , trees and tree leaves do a real fine job of reducing or reflecting or blocking Tv reception and so do buildings and other obstructions.

It is best the install the antenna at a location that has the least amount to no amount of obstructions of any type or kind in the direction of reception.

The Tv/s Must Channel Scan for the Digital Broadcast Tv Channels , sometimes named the 'Air Channel' or 'Antenna Channels' in the Tv setup menu because the Tv transmissions travel through the air from the transmitting antenna to the receiving antenna.

DO NOT channel scan for cable tv channels.
