Antenna and Booster Suggestions?

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...e2cbbae3011dc6
What antenna would you recommend for this location? This is exact location. I would like the antenna to be UHF and VHF.
I would like to receive.
KYTV 3.1 UHF
KSPR 19 UHF
KOZL 27.1 UHF
KOLR 10.1 VHF
Thanks in advance for the help.

I see you have started a new thread before finishing your previous thread.
Antennas Direct 91XG Signal

Is this report for you, your mom, or someone else? It looks like a different location.

KYTV 3.1 UHF

KOZL 27.1 UHF
KOLR 10.1 VHF
KYTV 3.1 NBC, real channel 44, NM 13.5 dB, 63.7 mi, 331 deg mag
KSPR 19 ABC, NM 16.0 dB, 63.7 mi, 331 deg mag
KOZL 27.1 MyN, real channel 28, NM 13.0 dB, 66.6 mi, 332 deg mag
KOLR 10.1 CBS, real channel 10, NM 13.9 dB, 66.6 mi, 332 deg mag

Channels that far away will have interference to the signal from the curvature of the earth.

It is the real channel number that determines what antenna is needed.

VHF-Low, real channels 2-6
VHF-High, real channels 7-13
UHF, real channels 14-51

Those 4 channels will require a Winegard HD7698P antenna aimed at 331 degrees magnetic.

The booster is a problem. I would suggest a CM7777, but it might be overloaded by K07XL, which is a low power station but only 1.1 mi away. A CM 7778 might be a better choice.

K41HC is off the air.

You are on the fringe of KOZL coverage:



BUT you location is still in the blue, which is promising:

You have some strong local FM signals that might interfere with TV reception. You will probably need an FM filter in addition to the FM filter in the preamp.
