Can I get OTA TV at my location?

I live on the north side of a mountain in western Virginia. Most of the TV channels are south of me. Just wondering if I can cut the satellite connection (DTV)? I own 35 acres and its possible for me to mount an antenna at a higher elevation but not sure how many feet of cable I can run before I begin to lose signal integrity. Can anyone help? I would love to get off of the DTV network? My TV Signal Analysis Results are attached. Thanks!!!

Please post a live link to your TV Fool report. The .png image lacks the live links to the path profiles which can help us understand the surrounding terrain you have to deal with.

Also, please use the following method to create an additional TVFR for the high point you have access to. http://forum.tvfool.com/showthread.php?t=14508

I am a newbie to this so I hope this new info is what you need. The link to my report is http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...2c153ae5deb7b4. My house is located at 3640'9.75"N/8246'35.40"W (Google Earth) and the elevation is about 1400 feet. The high point on my property is 3640'0.43"N/ 8246'38.60"W and is about 1830 feet. The "flat distance" between these two points is 3260 feet. The actual distance is longer since there is an increase in elevation. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more info.

To be sure we are looking at your location and not someplace else, can you confirm that you are located about 3.5 to 4 miles south of Duffield proper? I ask because there seems to be a significant difference between the first report you posted an image of vs the latest information.

Thanks
