What channel? I don't know, whatever he can pick up.

Yes he has trees, but mostly is down in a valley similar to me -- only worse.
Thank you for the additional information.

I looked at the satellite view. You are right; it does look worse than your location. He is surrounded by trees that will block TV signals:

and he is down a hill:

Even with a big antenna as high as he can get it, he will not be able to get much.
