A simple basic primer for receiving the Best possible HD Digital TV reception
is to us a UHF Antenna aimed at Scrays Hill just SE of Green Bay. TV channels
are arranged as follows: VHF-Lo (Chan 2-6), VHF-Hi (Chan 7 thru 13), and
UHF (Chan 14 thru 61). After Feb 2009 when the Analog TV Channels are turned
off and Only the Digital/HD TV channels remain, 99% of the digital channels
will be in the UHF band (Channels 14 thru 61). The most Digital reception requires
a UHF antenna; namely a flat Bow Tie Version or the wedge Yagi geometry. Bow
Tie versions come in 8 bay($50), 4 bay($25), 2 bay(indoor), or single bay.
The better brands are Channel Master & WineGard. A CM 3021 4 bay bow tie
can be used in a closet, attic, or roof & has a 40-50 mile range. The 4 bay
bay bow tie design is also capable of picking up the VHF-Hi band such as TV11-HD.
Loosing channels 2 thru 6 in Feb 2009 means the Big, wide antennas should disappear.
And these OTA (Over the Air) Antennas should be attached with RG-6 round coax, not thin
RG-59 round coax cable.
