OTA Reception - Courtice, Ontario

I currently have my Digiwave 2200 installed on teh roof of my house but struggle with receiving FOX - WUTV 29-1 and NBC 2-1 on some days. The ABC and CBS feeds are always strong, any suggestions as to how to imrove the FOX and NBC signal strength?

Please redo your radar plot with your exact address. Post a link to the TV Fool page rather than a picture of the plot. Pictures are not interactive.

What's a Digiwave 2200? Sounds like an off brand antenna, which could be the source of your problem.

The FOX station transmits on ch. 14, and your antenna is far less sensitive at the low end of the UHF band than the top. If you want to stay with the bow-tie style, then consider the AntennaCraft u8000 or the Antennas Direct ClearStream 4. Feeling handy? Check out the M4 design shown here.
