ADTech, thanks for checking into that (I was hoping you could!) I'll pass along the recommendations. I directed the person to rabbit-ears knowing all the issues, especially for 10 and 12, because if he couldn't get 5, then bigger VHF antennas would not be worth the cost and time.

The person is in Morgnatown, WV. I used to live there and in several other towns in the Mountain State. This case is pretty typical for many - the rolling hills really break up reception for many. Even when you're near the top of a hill, the shadows of other ridges still frustrate OTA reception. 'Tis no surprise that CATV was born in this area.
