Ok cool sounds good I have a suggestion for you that would work well for you it's the new channels master antenna
Cm-3011HD&amp,cm-7778,and use a Jpole mount.

Thanks, but doing OK with the GE 29884 - just put it in the attic a few minutes ago - pointed 285T and all the signal strengths increased a bit ... got better WEIQ from Mobile so may be able to hold it, did lose Ch 19 from Pcola, but not a biggie - do ya think I could get it back by pointing 300T (120 + 180), instead of the 285? Would be backside of the antenna.

No preamp - doesn't look like one would help me much with current low cost approach?

Here's the numbers from floor to attic:
Update
ant floor ant attic
3 - 77/98/100 100/100/100
5 - 79/96/100 98/98/100
10 - 70/68/100 100/100/100
15 - 88/98/100 100/100/100
18 - 67/90/100 90/100/100
19 - 73/98/100 lost
21 - 82/98/100 100/100/100
23 - 94/98/100 100/100/100
33 - 72/90/100 100/100/100
35 - 76/98/100 92/98/100
42 - 38/48/none 73/90/100
44 - 91/98/100 100/100/100
55 - 72/98/100 91/98/100

Checked pointing ... was a bit off - closer to 279, so repointed to 285 ... got 19 back with only noticeable thing being slight signal degradation on 42.

Those GE antennas are quite sensitive to not only side to
side aiming but up/down aiming as well. You may want
to experiment and see if pointing skyward slightly gives you
better signals.....

You should try stacking them like 4 ANTENNAS in a square 3ft apart by 3ft apart
I bet it will be out of this world!!
