PBS (9.1-9.3) are non existent, 13.1 occasional. 16.1 and 22.1 appear to be good though. Antenna is pointed at 274 magnetic north. The ClearStream was my personal choice although my install guy is wanting to try one of his antennas on Monday. This may be a lost cause but willing to try his recommendation then go satellite or cable if that fails. Could just be a rough area where I am at. Will report back after Monday. Thanks again to all for your help!
Can you take a photo of the antenna's view? From your previous photo the tree looks very large in front of that peak. Also you'll likely need to be higher than 3 ft above the peak. The C4v has a very narrow main beam lobe so grabbing signals around trees are more difficult also. What antenna does the installer want to try and also what is the opinion of the installer on the location?
