Attic Antenna Needed
Hey there guys. I am cutting the cord and need some advice. I am renting a condo, and can't put an antenna on the roof or outside. I do have access to the attic though. Here is my signal analysis:

I am only looking to pull in the stations that are all in a line SW of me, so directional should be fine. Would be hooking into the existing cable splitter and going to 3 tvs. No really long runs (longest is under 30'). The attic isn't huge so I need to get something that isn't massive.

I know these aren't ideal conditions, but it is what I am stuck with. So what would be the best option for an antenna? Do I need an amplifier or anything else that I don't have right now? Would appreciate any help you can give me.

Attics and the Inside of Buildings Are Not a reception friendly environment and Never Will Be a reception friendly environment.

Begin the Reception Situation with a , , HBU33 antenna in the attic aimed at about , 232 degree magnetic compass direction.

Here is how to aim antennas ,

Use a Real and Actual magnetic compass to aim antenna.


A antenna system amplifier will most likely not be required.


For 1 Tv connected use No splitter.

For 2 Tv's connected use a 2 way splitter.

For 3 Tv's connected use a 3 way splitter.


I reception situations/problems happen in the attic that are not resolved with antenna aim and location adjustments in the attic.

The move the HBU33 antenna to above the roof in such a manner that the reception is not , obstructed , impeded , blocked , by the , attic , roof , building , in the directions of reception , South West , North East , East.

The main group of Tv transmitters are to the South West.


Here are some above the roof antenna mounts that do not make holes in the roof.
Use the , ronard(4560) , eave antenna mount.
Measure around the chimney and use a , ronard(2212) , ronard(2218) , ronard(2224) .

Buy the ronard antenna mounts at , , or ,
