Default out door antennas

Are out door antennas allowed in TV ? I refuse to pay outrageous cable prices here outside of Buffalo.I have a roof antenna, I get 18 stations. My only cable is for internet service . High speed $14.99 per month. Spectrum. We may be relocating to TV in a year. What is antenna reception like in TV generally speaking?

Rescan your channels. ME TV is broadcasted from Orlando on 2.4 and Gainesville 20.3. I get both channels living in Pine Hills.

ReRun "Channel Scan" on your Tv Setup Menu

NBC2/ABC7 's transmitter tower has been off air for reworking as of 2/10. They just updated their website saying the work that needs to be done will be extended over this weekend.

You are correct. My bad on that link. I saw a WESH story the other day as well as the one I linked to and assumed (incorrectly) that the tower story was WESH's. WESH is a VHF station (actual VHF frequency is VHF Channel 11), so an antenna that can receive high-VHF as well as the more typical UHF OTA channels is key.

Would you be willing to share your antenna design? I also made my own. I can’t get channel 2 NBC. It broadcast on RF 11 which is Hi-VHF. I’d be interested to know if your antenna is able to get that station. Also is your antenna installed outside or in the attic? My antenna is currently installed in the attic. Thanks!

You will lose about 30% of the signal strength by putting it the attic. Get one that goes on your roof, as high as possible, and aim it at about 113 degrees.

I understand the difference between attic and roof installation but, I prefer to keep it in the attic if possible. With the antenna I built I get all the UHF channels at 75% signal strength or higher. Are you getting NBC to 2.1? And if so, would you mind sharing your design. Thanks!
