Its been about 20 years since I have had an antenna so I am starting over. If possible I would like to put an antenna in the garage attic but could move up to the roof outside if necessary.
Initially I will hook up one tv with a cable run of about 50-60 feet but may want to add a second tv with another 30 foot run from the first set.
There is an existing rg59 cable that runs to the den from the roof and past the garage attic. It is 20 years old but runs inside and under the house in the crawl space to the den. I mounted an indoor/outdoor amplified antenna from Monoprice.com # 4730 with minimal results. http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
My fool report shows the channels I am interested in are Ch. 5,8,12 all at 306 degrees and 45 miles with the balance all Uhf (26.1,32,48,)at 318 degrees at 8.2 miles ( I can see the towers from my house). Only 12 degrees between the two directions.
Oddly ch. 10 which is the opposite direction (180 degress) comes in when using rabbit ears.
I believe the ch 5 signal (NBC) is also on ch. 32 but not sure.
I have looked at Denny's Tv antenna source online for some ideas.
Sooo. Should I change to rg6 cable, and what antenna do you recommend?
