Contrary to the results I can NOT get WWLP at my current height even if I point my AntennaCraft (Y5-7-13) right toward it. There is also a hill directly that way. Normally I use this VHF only antenna for WNAC and keep it aimed that way.
Yes, you would think so. The tvfool report knows about the hill, but it doesn't know about the trees in the WWLP signal path. Trees block TV signals.

That little hill only 0.3 mi away is a problem.



An MCM 30-2476 with the front end tilted up and a preamp might pick it up.
