Smile Antenna Recommendations

Here's my report: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...8e03b2e1cc4490

Please advise on optimal antenna recommendations for my area. Would something like the RCA ANT751 be sufficient or would I need more signal gain with something larger? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Have you moved since your last thread?

I see you are using a different zip code for the report. A zip code report isn't very accurate.

Based on what little information you have given the 751 should be OK if it is outside and no buildings or trees are in the signal path from 346 degrees magnetic.

Smile Antenna Recommendations

Hey rabbit73! Yep, we're very mobile here in SoCal, as you noted. I swore my last move would be the final one, but here we go again. Or, as Willie Nelson sang, "On the road again....." Anyway, the immediate area I'm in is LOS and rather free of obstructions, at least directly in front of me. I'm looking at about 20 feet up, but since Mt. Wilson is around 40 miles away, I wasn't sure if the 751 would be at its limits and a larger antenna with more gain would be advisable? I appreciate your kind help again. Thanks so much. TV Fool is an oasis for many of us for sure!
