Cool RCA antenna logistics

Hi: newbie bot oldie --- who remembers sysops and 300 modems. Anyway seeking to cut satellite out (directv). I purchased an RCA antenna and find that I can pick up the locals with poor reception. The spouse is very visual and would be cool with me cabling it to the roof ( small single story home). Would appreciate feedback from anyone who has gone down this road. Greetings.

Welcome, Adolfojm

We usually answer reception problems on the Help With Reception thread because you will get more attention there.
http://forum.tvfool.com/forumdisplay.php?f=7

but we will try to help you here.

What RCA antenna are you using?

Where was it located for the test?

We need to know where you are located and would like to see your tvfool signal report.

You can do a report here:

thank you and apologies

Hi rabbit73

Sorry for the typical rookie error (not doing appropriate leg work to find thread). The antenna is a 702F and I had it placed by a window. My area code is 93433 (central coast california). Here is the report:
