Remove the UHF antenna that is on the tower.


------>------->----->---->A antenna rotator is Not required.<----<-------<---------<-------


Install a , Antennas Direct , DB8e , current UHF channels 14 thru 51 antenna.

Aim the DB8e antenna at about 142 degree magnetic compass direction for reception of as many of the Weak Signal Strength UHF Channels , Buffalo Tv Stations as possible.

And the stronger Canada UHF Tv stations/channels will also be received.


Here is how to aim antennas ,

Use a Real and Actual magnetic compass to aim antenna , do not trust a , cell phone , tablet and etc compass.

As always , antenna aim can be adjusted for best reception.

Most Digital Tv's have a , Signal Strength Meter , and some Digital Tv's also have a , Signal Quality Meter.


Also install a ,

Y10-7-13 , VHF high band channels 7 through 13 antenna for reception of CKCO-DT , VHF high band channel 13 , Network CTV 1 .

Aim the Y10-7-13 antenna at about 239 degree magnetic compass direction.


Install a ,

10G221 preamplifier.

Connect the DB8e UHF antenna to the UHF connection on the preamp.

Connect the Y10-7-13 VHF high band antenna to the VHF connection on the preamp.


Install the , DB8e antenna about 3 feet above the Y10-7-13 antenna on the same antenna mast pipe.


As a Test to prove reception.

Use All New Coaxes for the connections of Tv antennas and amplifier.

And run the All New Continues Length Coax through a open door or window direct to 1 Tv , No couplers , No splitters.


If reception Test proves successful then,

For 1 Tv connected use No splitter.

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

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


Here are some places to buy antennas and etc.


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 Reception.

Multi-Path Reflecting Tv Signals Bouncing All Around.

The Best Practice for Reliable Reception is to install antennas 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 building.

The directions of reception at your location are , South East , South , South West , East.


The closer all types and kinds of obstructions are to the antennas , the more the reception will be disrupted.

It is Ok to cut down trees that are close , in the directions of reception.

The directions of reception are , East , South East , South , South West.
