Chances I can get ...

WENH, by pointing right at it with a Y10713 and preamp?

Here it is at 60' - though I don't know offhand how I'd get that much height.

The predicted signal at 40' is too low for a single Y10-7-13. However, if the transmitted antenna pattern favors you and your terrain is favorable you might be able to find a height that works. You could consider a pair of the same antennas stacked and then expect to find the optimum height by trial and error.

That little red co-channel scares me. What does WENH look like at 100'?

Even if you get it up to usable strengths, that co-channel might torpedo the thing.

I see no reasonable prospect of getting that station. The desired incoming signal is too weak and will buried in the background noise most of the time.

Here it is at 100' - becomes LOS. http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...d243dabb5b2226

Funny - I don't see any other channels on the list broadcasting on 11.

Lookee there, it indeed pops LOS and useable strength at 100'. Maybe backtrack and see at what height it pops LOS, say 70'/80'/90'.

It may be possible at higher heights to get a usable signal. Question is are you willing to install a tower to get it?

It's still 2-edge at 80, but a NM of 17. One edge at 85 and LOS at 90.

No tower this year ...

It's not on the list, but possibly WWLP in Springfield Massachusetts. Springfield also has a PBS affiliate, WGBY, real channel 22. Even closer are WGBH and WGBX in Boston and WSBE in Providence. Concerning WENH, I suggest you simply try to find a hot spot, especially if you will be using a dedicated antenna for the station.
