Moving to the country

Moving to a rural area and was wondering if I will be able to receive any signal.
I have an Antennacraft Y10713 and an Antennas Direct DB4e that I should be able to put up at 30'. Also have a RCA TVPRAMP1R preamplifier.


Any chance of this working? Where should the antennas be aimed for best results? Thanks for the help.

Unfortunately, it looks like you'd better call the cable company. Try the query first, but it's not looking good.

Here's the link to get your RabbitEars report. Their data is much more up to date.
Antennacraft Y10-7-13 VHF, Antennas Direct 91XG UHF

Estimating you location based on the TVFR you posted, I took a look at the data in the vicinity of Shooting Creek / Route 64 (In the Nantahala National Forest).

This study; was based on theoretical access to a ridge top location after confirming very poor signal conditions down in the valley. As you can see in the report, it would only be reasonable to expect access to one or two PBS transmitters. Even if you have access to a ridge top for installation of an antenna, you then would face the challenge of relaying that signal to your desired viewing location. This is theoretically possible but I've yet to meet anyone who has put that much effort and money into such an endeavor.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
