Is it Possible ?

I will be using the coax that was run to my DISH receiver.
I can pull in the Huntsville channels, no problem, but is there an antenna/preamp/amplifier combo that will enable me to pull in Birmingham (100 miles), Nashville (85 miles) or Chattanooga (75 miles) stations ?

Thanks for any help/suggestions !

There is a warming on your TV Fool report that it is only resolved to the block level. So it may or may not be accurate for your location. Please re-do your TV Fool Report using the directions at http://forum.tvfool.com/showthread.php?t=14508 --- and prepare one at 25 feet and 25 feet. That information will be useful.

If your report does not change, it will be difficult to get the stations in red and the ones in gray will likely be impossible to bring in.

How motivated are you? Are you prepared to install a tall tower, if needed, use a large antenna array, or deal with a rotor?

What does your line of sight look like in each of those directions?

Nashville & Chattanooga directions, I will have minimal trees to deal with.
South, toward Birmingham.....no obstructions.
I can go about 30' up, that's about the highest I'd want to go. A rotor is no problem, will gladly use one.
