This recommendation is based on the street level tvfool radar plot and channel list.

Not the exact address..

Because the street level is the tvfool radar plot and channel list that is posted.

A Simple reception situation.

Here is a 1 antenna solution to receive the New York area Tv stations and Philly area Tv stations

Above the roof in such a manner that reception is not blocked by the roof or house in All directions.

Install a Winegard HD7000R antenna aimed at about 87 degree magnetic compass direction.

Here is how to aim antennas ,

The HD7000R antenna is not a very directional antenna and receives good from/at other directions.

The HD7000R antenna receives the best at the front of the antenna and Also receives at front angles , back angles / back , of the antenna.

The least reception is directly on the sides of a directional antenna.

Here are some roof top antenna mounts. if using 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.

A Winegard DS3000 , J type antenna mount can be used to install the HD7000R antenna.

Here are some places to buy antennas and etc. , , , ,


For one Tv connected use No splitter , No amplifier.

For 2 Tv's connected use a Channel Master CM3412 distribution amplifier.

For 3 or 4 Tv's connected use a CM3414 distribution amplifier.


As always , trees and tree leaves do a real 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 HD7000R 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.

The Tv's Must Channel Scan for the Digital Broadcast Tv 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'.

I return and reread the information that I provide for the question askers.

Looking for typos and to clarify the information.

I found 2 typos and have corrected them.

I found that I recommended CM3212 and CM3214 splitters and called them distribution amplifiers.

I have corrected the model numbers to CM3412 and CM3414 , that are in fact the distribution amplifiers.

Distribution amplifiers are what I am recommending.

It is interesting how the mind works , I can tell my self , Type a number that is correct , and as I am telling my self , I type the not correct number.
