7. Approximately how long will the coax cable run be from the antenna to the TV. If a signal splitter is in use how long will the cable run be from the antenna to the furthest TV: 50'

Hello Ken,

Fortunately your location is elevated enough that the signals from the West/Northwest are going over the foothills. The antenna best suited for the reception conditions is the EZ HD TV antenna. I'm a little concerned with the tile roof. We do have people reporting good reception through a tile roof. However, if you can located the antenna so the signals don't have to penetrate the roof that is best. The transmitters are at 310 degrees magnetic. 

When supplying only 1 TV with only a 50 foot cable run a signal amplifier should not be needed. If in the future a signal splitter is added into the system use the HDA 100 signal amplifier installed in line on the antenna side of the signal splitter.

If I can assist you further, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Hello Linda,

The ABC, NBC and PBS TV transmitters are located to your West/Northwest near Redding.  The FOX and CBS transmitters are located to the Northeast. The signals from Redding are too weak to use an omnidirectional antenna. To receive all channels I recommend the EZ HD antenna system #1. This system comes with two antennas, antenna coupler and preamplifier. Aim one antenna WNW and the other NE. Couple the two antennas together using the antenna coupler and amplify the signal with the preamplifier. The system also comes with three connecting cables to make the connections from the antennas to the coupler and from the coupler to the preamplifier. This system will provide reception on all channels without the need for a rotor. 

You can use the existing coax cable for antenna reception.

If I can assist you further, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Approximately how many feet above ground level will the antenna be installed?: not sure 8-10 ft
Will the antenna be installed outside above the roofline, in the attic, etc...?: above roof
How many TV locations within your home will the antenna supply? In other words, will a signal splitter be in use and if so how many times will the splitter divide the TV signal?: 2
Approximately how long will the coax cable run be from the antenna to the TV. If a signal splitter is in use how long will the cable run be from the antenna to the furthest TV: not sure in two seperate bedrooms 25-50 ft ?

Hi Wanda,
 
I retrieved all of the reception data for your location and the EZ HD TV antenna is an excellent choice. Plus we have numerous positive reception reports from customer's using the EZ HD in your area. Install the antenna aiming South. See attached photo.
 
Considering the strength of the TV signals reaching your location I don't think signal amplification will be needed when supplying 2 TV locations within your home.

Hi Jun,
 
A very good choice for your location is the EZ HD TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming West. 

Along with the antenna I highly recommend the AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8780 will enhance the all around performance and deliver a strong signal to all 4 TV locations.

If you have any questions please ask.

Hi Christopher,
 
A very good antenna choice is the EZ HD TV antenna. We have a lot of these antennas in your area with several reports of excellent results. Install the antenna aiming North/Northwest. In this position you will receive all of the LA area channels which is a lot of channels.
 
You may or may not need signal amplification. It's too close to call. I would try without and in the unlikely event signal amplification is needed install the HDA 100 signal amplifier in line just before the signal splitter on the antenna side of the splitter.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reply.

Best TV antenna for:
Diamond Springs, CA 95619

We live in Diamond Springs, California, some 40 miles East of Sacramento. We discontinued the TV and cable is not out where we are. We installed a conventional TV antenna in the top of a pine tree, which took it up some 50-60 feet. However, the rotor motor froze and my son is now to heavy to climb back up in that tree. I would like to get a TV antenna that could be mounted on the roof, even if it means using some sort of extension, The house is on the side of a hill. Any suggestions as to what is my best bet? House sits down on the East side of the hill, however, the ground swells up to both the North and to the South. Zip 95619. Placerville is approximately 2 miles to the North. Thanks.

Greetings, Most of the channels come from the Southwest. It sounds like the hill will be in the way. With this in mind I wouldn't go with anything less than the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the antenna use the AP 8700 preamplifier. This combination will provide the maximum performance to overcome the reduced signal strength caused by the hill.

7. Approximately how long will the coax cable run be from the antenna to the TV. If a signal splitter is in use how long will the cable run be from the antenna to the furthest TV: 30 feet

Hello Rick,

I have two options for your location. 

1. Use the EZ HD TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming North/Northeast. Along with the antenna I recommend the HDP 269 antenna preamplifier.

2. Use the HD Stacker TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming NNE. When using the Hd Stacker a signal amplifier will not be needed.

The choice is smaller antenna with preamplifier or larger antenna without preamplifier

Hi Glen, 

The antenna best suited for the reception conditions at your location is the EZ HD TV antenna. The signals are both VHF and UHF frequencies. The EZ HD receives both types of signals equally well. The antenna should be installed aiming East.

Along with the antenna use the HDA 100 signal amplifier installed inline on the antenna side of the signal splitter.

If you have any further questions please ask.

Best TV antenna for:
Huntington Beach, CA 92648

Submitted TV antenna recommendation form.

Name William
Address?________ Huntington Beach, CA. 92648
How many feet above ground level will the TV antenna be installed? 15 feet
Will the antenna be installed outside or in the attic? Attic
If attic what building materials does the signal have to penetrate to reach the antenna? Ceramic tile
How many TV locations within your home will the TV antenna supply? 1 TV locations
How long will the coax cable run be from the TV antenna to the furthest TV? 30

Hi Wiliam,

MT. Wilson is the main TV transmitter location for LA. The ceramic tile is not a plus but it should be okay. Because there are both VHF and UHF broadcast signals and a directional antenna works best for these situations the EZ HD antenna is a very good choice. The transmitters are all located in the same direction so a directional antenna makes sense. A directional antenna will reject any signals that may reflect off of the ceramic tiling and will focus its receiving abilities in the direction to the transmitters.

Because the cable length from the antenna to the TV is only 30 feet and the signals reaching your location are quite strong a signal amplifier should not be needed.

Aim the antenna to the NNW at about 140 or so degrees on the compass. That's your starting point and may work great. However, you may find tweaking the antenna direction may be required for best results. This is especially true when the antenna is installed in the attic.

Here's a link to more information about the EZ HD antenna.

Huntington Beach, CA 92648

Hi Denny, I need a TV antenna for getting signals from LA. But I live in Huntington Beach a mere 12 feet above sea level. LA stations must be higher than I am?? What am I to do? I do use some rabbit ears now and a digital converter box and I do get some signals and a dozen channels, but very low signal strength.

I wonder what the best TV antenna is for me. Here is my info.

________ street Huntington Beach, CA 92648

One TV will be connected to the TV antenna.

The TV antenna will be roof mounted.

Hi Brad, I retrieved the reception data from two separate sources and found that the perfect choice is an antenna I designed called the EZ HD TV antenna. The antenna is compact, easy to install and yet provides outstanding performance. The TV antenna should be installed in a fixed position with the narrower end of the antenna aiming North/Northwest. This antenna position will provide excellent reception on all of the LA area stations. If the antenna will supply 1 TV without the use of a signal splitter a signal amplifier should not be needed. If a signal splitter will be in use I suggest the HDP 269 antenna preamplifier.

I'm very confident that the recommend equipment will provide good reliable reception at your location.

8. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: How do I find out what channels I could receive?

Hi Brent,

Most of the TV stations in your area are low powered translator channels that are re-transmitting signals from stations further away. Nearly all of the transmitters are located to the WNW of your location. According to the information available it looks like there's about 20 - 30 channels. 
 
Considering everything I recommend the HD Stacker TV antenna. However, I'm a little concerned with the attic installation and the tile you mentioned. If possible I recommend the antenna be installed so the signal path coming from the WNW does not have to penetrate the tiling to reach the antenna in the attic.. 
 
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Best TV antenna for:
Inglewwod, CA 90302

Hi Denny, I've been reading your site. Glad to see some people still take pride in the work they do. I have a TV antenna currently but it's old, and does not function very well. I'm only able to pick up Hispanic channels that I'm guessing come from the South. I'm in zip code 90302 and unfortunately live at the base of a foot hill if I'm correct stands between me and the signals in Los Angeles. I'm wonder what my TV antenna options are if there are any. Thanks for any insight you may have. Hylon.

Greetings Hylon,

According to the reception data the HD Stacker TV antenna along with the AP 8700 preamplifier should give you excellent reception from the Los Angeles stations. Install the antenna aiming NNE at about 30 degrees on the compass.

Best Regards, Denny

Hi Vincent,
 
According to the reception data the network channels available are ABC, NBC, CBS and maybe CW plus all sub channels offered by these stations.
 
The antenna best suited for the reception conditions at your location is the EZ HD TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming North/Northeast.

This antenna is also well suited for the weather conditions at your location such as heavy snow etc...
See http://dennysantennaservice.com/bowling-ball-test.html

Along with the antenna I recommend the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8700 will maximize the performance and help insure the signals reaching the TV are strong.

If you have any further questions please ask.
