Ok this will be a 2 antenna set up. The first antenna is a Winegard HD7698P antenna with a Antennas Direct CPA-19 preamp aimed at about 301 degree magnetic compass. The Tv stations/channels that will be received are , KSPR-DT channel 19 ABC and The CW , KYTV channel 44 NBC and Weather , KOZL-TV channel 28 IND. , KOLR channel 10 CBS , KOZK-DT channel 23 PBS. . The second antenna will be a Winegard YA1713 antenna with a Antennas Direct CPA-19 preamp. aimed at about 235 degree magnetic compass. The Tv stations/channels that will be received are , KEMV channel 13 PBS , K07XL-D 7 RTV and Antenna Tv and This Tv and Me-Tv. The 2 antennas and 2 preamps are 2 separate systems and are Not connected together on to one coax , the 2 separate antenna systems coaxes will go to the location of the Tv and will be connected to a Radio Shack # 15-1968 remote control A/B antenna switch and the output of the A/B switch is connected to the Tv. Here is how to aim antennas , http://www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html

You can install the HD7698P and CPA-19 preamp and receive , NBC , ABC , CBS , The CW , Independent station , KOZK PBS. And use a antenna rotor CM9521A to rotate the the antenna to receive , K07XL RTV and Antenna Tv and This Tv and Me-Tv , KEMV PBS. However rotors are not channel surfing friendly and not every one will agree with where the antenna is pointed. You can start with the HD7698P antenna and CPA-19 preamp and install the YA1713 with CPA-19 preamp later.

The Tv Must Scan for the Digital Broadcast Tv channels sometimes called the 'Air Channels" or 'Antenna Channels' in the Tv menu because the Tv transmissions travel through the air from the transmitting antenna to your receiving antenna. Do Not scan for cable Tv channels.

Digital Broadcast Tv Channels have a main digital channel and digital sub channels , so the HD7698P antenna will the digital main channel and the digital sub channels. I provided the information of the Tv stations main digital channels and digital sub channels. An example is KSPR-DT channel 19 , the main digital channel is ABC the digital sub channel is The CW.

If you are still living in the PAST when there was only one Analog channel per channel , those days are gone. This is now digital , digital can put more then one digital channel in the place/space of one analog channel.

If you are looking for the easy way out , you are setting your self up for the antenna scammers. There many money hungry people on the internet that flat out do not care about you. They will take your money.
