Tv antenna rotators Are Not channel surfing friendly , must wait for antenna to rotate and their Will Be Domestic Situations about the direction the antenna is aimed.

The CM4228HD is a good selection for the antenna.

Your location has , Strong Signal Strength Tv stations , that will be received through the back of the CM4228HD antenna , WTBL-CD , WUNE-TV , W20DD-D , W42Dr-D.

Many , many , many , many , Digital Broadcast Tv stations channels will be received with the CM4228HD antenna aimed in one direction , aim the CM4228HD at about 125 degree magnetic compass direction.

Here is how to aim antennas ,

Also looking at the , Digital Pending Applications Included tvfool radar map and channel list I see some Strong Signal Strength Tv stations that are less then 7 miles away.

I recommend do not use the AP8700 preamp , My concern is the strong signals will overload the AP8700 preamp and be the cause of bad reception or no reception of some channels.

I recommend use a Antennas Direct CPA-19 preamp , the CPA-19 is made to resist overloading from strong signals.

Here are some places to buy reception equipment , ,

For 1 Tv connected use No splitter.

For 2 Tv's connected use a , HFS-2D , 2 way splitter.

For 3 Tv's connected use a , HFS-3D , 3 way splitter.

Buy the HFS splitters at , or

The 40 " J mount is a good selection for the antenna mount.

May I also suggest a. , If installing the tripod antenna mount use the 5 foot tripod antenna mount. If using the eave antenna mount use the #4560.

Buy the ronard antenna mounts at solidsignal by typing the word ronard in the solidsignal search box or buy from ronard.


As always , trees and tree leaves do a good job of , reflecting , reducing , blocking , Digital Tv reception and so do buildings and other obstructions including your own roof and house.

It is best to install the CM4228HD antenna at a location that has the least amount to no amount of obstructions of any type or kind in the directions of reception including your own roof and house.

Install the antenna Up High.

The Tv's Must Channel Scan for the Digital Broadcast Tv stations/channels , often named the 'Air Channels' or 'Antenna Channels' in the Tv setup menu because the Tv transmissions travel through the Air from the transmitting antenna to the receiving antenna.

Some Digital Tv's will automatic channel scan for cable tv channels.

DO NOT channel scan for cable tv channels.

Go into the Tv Setup Menu and select , 'Air Channels' / 'Antenna Channels'.
