JoeAZ, thank you for your insights!

I have already discovered that the ClearStream 2MAX is capable of high-VHF (RF12) indoors, from my second story. I can't pick up RF12 from the ground floor, either indoors or outside, so I will ultimately need to install a roof-mount antenna.

Yesterday I experimented dragging my 2MAX through a window pointing to Chicago and picked up an additional low-power station (RF30/virtual 57.1). Signal strength improved a bit on the stations I was already receiving.

Unfortunately, a tower would not be an option in my neighbourhood. I am in a single-family home, but the property lines are extremely close. I could install a roof-mounted antenna with a rotor.
