Long distance tv antenna c4 ultra range,according to the tv fool signal color code, the tv station i'm trying to pick up falls into the week to very week range. the transmitter is about 75 miles away,will using the c4 ultra rang antenna make it possible for me to pick up this tv station if i live just out of the weak to very weak range,where the code fades to gray or extremly weak range? Thanks.

What is your location? The more information you provide the better we can help. Do you live in a house , apt. , mobile home , farm ,city , island , mountain top , valley , desert , forest , what is the city and state or a link to a tvfool report. How many tv's will be connected?

My location is Evansville,Indiana,i live in an apartment with an upstairs bolony,i'm trying to receive louisville,ky stations like wave3,or whas,wdrb.A small town about 15 miles from here Boonville,Indiana can pickup these stations with a weak signal but the signal fades out according the tv fool color codes.East parts of Boonville has a pink color code.i have one tv in my apartment.I bought a c4 ultra long range antenna,trying to pickup Louisville stations.I live in the eastern part of Evansville,but my apartment faces toward the west so i can't use the c4 antenna untill i move into another apartment facing toward East & Louisville,ky.The c4 has a range of 65 to 100 miles.Do i have any hope of picking up Louisville without moving to Boonville ?Thanks,James.

You need to give us some more information, first. Please rerun your TVFool plot, making sure you adjust your location and antenna height to properly reflect your situation. When you have the final radar plot, there will be instructions on how to share your results using the URL specified. Post that URL here.

The stations will not be received at your Evansville location , you will need to move to East Boonville. As far east as you can get at East Boonville. There can be no buildings or other obstructions obstructing the view to the east , as the signal is very weak. Go to the >>Start MAPS<< part of tvfool and you will see that the signals are spotty at best. 90 miles is a very long ways in parts of USA where there are a lot trees and hills for Tv reception. Here is my recomendation , Tv antenna HD8200U and amplifier AP8275 . http://winegardtvantennas.com
