A little 400 foot hill is not likely to be in your way unless you are at the very base of that hill and directly in the RF shadow.
Thank you for that location information. I picked up a small yagi since I didn't think I'd receive NBC. I'll make sure to aim it in that direction to see what whill happen. If I pull that in I'll look at one of those 4 bays.
