Antenna in Redmond, WA

Hi! Here is my TV fool report:

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...46ae80a9f0518a

Other stuff: I am in an apartment/condo complex on the west slope of a hill. My patio is southeasterly and I wondered if

or
http://www.amazon.com/RCA-ANT751-Qua...I2FU9PDSNKJ2K0

would work to get the yellow stations (FOX/NBC/CBS) if I mounted one outside? Right now I have a small indoor rabbit ear set and can pick up the green ones ok-ish.

Thanks!

The Main Group of Digital Broadcast Tv stations are to the , South West.

As best you can , install the ANT751 antenna out on the patio away from the the building so that the ANT751 antenna can have the best possible obstruction free reception of the Tv stations to the South West.

Here is how to aim antennas , http://www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html.

------

Question: Can the ANT751 antenna be located so the reception is not being obstructed by the building in the direction of , South West ??

I see that the , South West group of Tv stations are at about 244 degree magnetic compass direction.

Digital Broadcast Tv Tuners can develop - Digital Glitches - that are not cleared out with simple channel scans.

To clear the tuner do Double Rescan.

So I've set up the antenna in my room against a south facing window pointed SW, and I get everything I want except for NBC and PBS, which seems pretty odd to me as PBS should be super easy to get and NBC should be with the rest of the Seattle channels, right? Mysterious!

As always , the inside of buildings and attics Are Not a reception friendly environment and Never Will Be a reception friendly environment.

Adjust the antenna aim and location for better reception.

Have done , Double Rescans??

Is there a , patio/balcony , to put the antenna on??
