Above the High Peak of the Roof install a , , HBU44 antenna aimed at about 167 degree magnetic compass direction.

Here is how to aim antennas ,

Use a Real and Actual magnetic compass to aim antenna.


No antenna system amplifier is required.


For 1 Tv connected use No splitter.

For 2 Tv's connected use a simple common 2 way splitter.

For 3 Tv's connected use a simple common 3 way splitter.m

Yes the coax cables that are connected to the dish can be used for the antenna.

Disconnect and Remove All satellite system components such as and not limited to , multi-plexers , multi-switches , splitters , couplers , amplifiers , power injectors , power supplies , and etc. .


If the dish mount does not work , here are some above the roof antenna mounts.
Use the , ronard(911) , 5 foot tripod antenna mount.
Use the , ronard(4560) , eave antenna mount.
Measure around the chimney and use a , ronard(2212) , ronard(2218) , ronard(2224) .

Buy the ronard antenna mounts at ,


As always , trees and tree leaves , plants and plant leaves , have a Negative Effect on Broadcast Tv Reception and so do buildings and other obstructions including your own roof and building.

Some and not all Negative Effects are.

Absorbing and Blocking Tv reception.

Multi-Path Reflecting Tv Signals Bouncing All Around.

The Best Practice is to install the HBU44 antenna and any other antennas at a location that has the least amount to no amount of obstructions of any type or kind in the directions of reception.
At your location that is . South , West , North West , North , North East.

Is best to have the HBU44 antenna further away from trees in the directions of reception , your main direction of reception is South and a little east.


The Tv's Must Channel Scan for the , OTA=Over The Air , ATSC-Digital Broadcast Tv Stations/Channels , often named the ~ DTV Channels ~ Antenna Channels ~ Air Channels ~ in the Tv Setup Menu because the Tv transmissions travel through the Air from the transiting antenna to the receiving antenna.

Some Digital Tuners will Automatic channel scan for cable Tv channels.

DO NOT channel scan for cable Tv channels.

Go into the Tv Setup Menu and select ~ DTV Channels ~ Antenna Channels ~ Air Channels ~.

Scan for , ATSC-Digital Broadcast Tv Channels.
