Smile Reception help in FL

Please see the message below that I sent a few years back. I never pulled the trigger on the DB8e and am wondering if that is still the best choice. Thanks!

Hello everyone,

I have just tried the Mohu Leaf (along with the amplifier after a lengthy conversation with Mohu) and have not been able to find a location for the device where I can get the 4 channels I am interested in (WFLX Fox, WPBF ABC, WPTV NBC, and WPEC CBS). I am considering moving the leaf to the attic, but want to know if anyone has any different suggestions as to how I should proceed. All of the channels but NBC are in one direction, and Fox and ABC are UHF while NBC and CBS are Hi-V. Any leaf configurations or suggestions for different antennas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Pat

The C2MAX is a far better choice than the DB8e since you have both UHF and VHF as well as stations in nearly opposite directions.

Your actual results will be mostly determined by how well you pick a suitable mounting location. A spot that gives the clearest available line of sight in BOTH required directions is the best location, everything else goes down hill from there.

A very difficult situation for any ONE antenna. Mounting
outside is nearly a must.... Cannot help but wonder if
two C2Max could be interconnected to solve this problem???

Nope. My suggestion is intended to exploit two design characteristics of the C2MAX (or a C2V with no reflector): Bi-directional reception and very broad beam-width. If that doesn't work, it gets a lot harder.
