The following information are main situation/problems and not the only situation/problems with Tv reception.


The Current Tv Channels that are being Transmitted and Received in the , USA , Canada , Mexico , are.


VHF low band channels 2 thru 6.

Are effected in a Negative Way by natural interference , sun shine , atmospheric static , lightning.

And human made interference , electronic and electric.


VHF high band channels 7 thru 13.

Are effected in a Negative Way by , Multi-Path Reflections Tv signals bouncing all around. Digital Tv tuner computers can correct multi-path up to a certain point and then the multi-path is , To Much.

Channels 7 and 9 are effected more by multi-path then the other VHF high band channels.

Using a omnidirectional antenna such as and not limited to the FDTV2A , receives multi-path from all directions , receiving multi-path from all directions is , Not Good.

To reduce the reception of multi-path , use a directional antenna that receives better in the the forward direction and less at other directions to the directional antenna.

The VHF high band channels , 7 thru 13 , are also effected in a Negative Way by human made electronic and electric interference.


UHF channels 14 thru 51.

Are effected in a Negative Way by Signal Attenuation , meaning Absorbing and Blocking reception. And also multi-path reflections.


As always , the inside of buildings and attics , increase multi-path reflections bouncing all around and absorb and block Tv signal reception.

And human made electronic and electric noise is greater inside of buildings and attics.


Recommend install a directional antenna aimed at KUSA-DT channel 9.

Above the Peak of the Roof in such a manner that the the roof and building are not , obstructing , impeding , blocking , reception in the directions of , South West , West , North West , South , South East.

Install a AntennaCraft, HBU11 antenna.

Or a ANT751 antenna.

Aimed at about 199 degree magnetic compass direction.

Here is how to aim antennas ,

Use a Real and Actual magnetic compass to aim antenna.

As always , starting antenna aim direction is the --> starting antenna aim direction.

The antenna aim direction can be adjusted for the best reception.

Most Digital Tv's have a Signal Strength Meter and some Digital Tv's also have a Signal Quality Meter.


The Tv signal strengths are strong at your reception location , a antenna system amplifier is not required.


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

To clear tuner do Double Rescan.


Here are some places to buy antennas and etc. .

Home Depot or Lowes can have the ANT751 antenna in stock in the store , no matter what the Home Depot and Lowes web sites say.
