Best TV antenna for:
Canterbury, CT 06331

Name: chris
1. Address: _______________________________ Canterbury Connecticut 06331
2. Email: _________________
3. Approximately how many feet above ground level will the antenna be installed?: 30
4. Will the antenna be installed outside above the roof line or in the attic, other: outside above roof
6. 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?: 3
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: 60

Hello Chris,
 
The antenna best suited for the reception conditions at your location is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the antenna I suggest the AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8780 will boost the signal enough to supply the best possible signal to each TV location in your home.
 
Both the Providence and Boston channels are available at your location using the HD Stacker. To receive Boston aim the antenna ENE at about 55 degrees on the compass. To receive Providence aim the antenna East at about 85 degrees. Considering the signals are weaker I don't think you can aim the antenna between the two location and get good reception on all channels from both locations. If you want both location it is best if you use a rotor and aim the antenna appropriately according to the City you want to receive.

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

Hello Jeremy,

In your area the CBS transmitter is ESE. The FOX, NBC and PBS are Southeast and ABC is South. The antenna best suited to meet the reception condition is the HD Stacker TV antenna. This antenna has a wider than average receiving beam width. Installing the Stacker antenna aiming SE will receive all channels without the need for a rotor or antenna rotation. Along with the antenna use the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier.

Jeremy, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to reply.

Hi Stan,
 
There are TV transmitters in several directions from your location. The antenna best suited to meet the reception conditions is the MS 1000 omnidirectional TV antenna. Along with the antenna use the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. This combination should provide great reception on at least one channel of each broadcast network.

If you have any questions please ask.

Hello Doug,

At least one channel of every free to air broadcast network  is available at your location. The TV transmitting towers are located to your East, West and NNW and vary in distance. The signals are too weak to use an omni-directional or multi directional antenna. The antenna best suited to meet the reception conditions at your location is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the antenna I suggest the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The preamplifier will enhance the performance on the weaker signal stations and help offset the effects of the trees you mentioned. 

Because the TV transmitters are in varying direction an antenna rotor will be needed so you can aim the antenna appropriately and receive all of the available channels.

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

Hello Suzanne,

To receive one channel of every broadcast network the antenna will need to receive the Hartford stations. Between your location and Hartford are some hills and dense forestry. The terrain is weakening the signals requiring a high signal gain antenna such as the HD Stacker TV antenna. The high performance HD Stacker antenna will offset the effects of the terrain and provide you with reliable reception at your location. Install the antenna aiming North/Northeast. Along with the antenna use the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8700 will boost the antenna signal and provide a strong signal to all 3 TVs in your home.

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

Hello Paul,

The majority of the TV stations are in NYC. There are a few stations to your north and a couple to the south. The NYC TV signals are rated to be moderate in strength. The antenna best suited to meet the reception conditions is the HD Stacker TV antenna. The building materials you mentioned that the signals must penetrate to reach the antenna in the attic are not ideal. Honestly, there is a slight risk a few of the channels may not be reliable even when using the HD Stacker antenna. However, the Stacker is the best choice for the application. Install the antenna aiming WSW at about 240 degrees magnetic. It would be a benefit to use the AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8780 will certainly improve the all around performance.

If you have any question please feel free to reply.

Hello Kathleen,

The nearest location offering one channel of every major broadcast network is Hartford. The signals from Hartford are both VHF and UHF frequencies with most rated moderate in strength with one channel rated weak. The antenna best suited to receive moderate and weak UHF and VHF signals is the HD Stacker TV antenna. I think a few of the channels are too weak to be received from the attic location. It is best if the antenna is mounted outdoors. To receive the Hartford stations install the antenna aiming West/Northwest. Considering the strength of the signals and when supply 2 TVs a preamplifier would be a benefit. A very good choice is the AP 8700 preamplifier. If you're interested there are some channels available from Providence. To receive the Hartford and Providence channels a rotor would required to aim the antenna to the appropriate direction.

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

Hello Frank,

There are some local station but the majority of the channels available come from NYC. There are both VHF and UHF TV signals and most are rated moderate in strength. The antenna best suited to meet the reception conditions is the HD Stacker TV antenna. To supply the antenna system and compensate for the signal splitter and the 80 to 100 feet of cable I suggest the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier.

The antenna can be installed stationary aiming west-southwest and receive all of the New York City channels or you can use a rotor that will allow you to aim the antenna and receive the NYC channels and the 5 or 6 local channels.

If you have any questions please feel free to reply.

Willington, CT 06279

Denny,

Address is __________ willington, Connecticut 06279
Connected to 3 TV locations in my home.
I plan to mount the antenna using a gable mount. (Eave mount)
What TV antenna is best? Thanks for your help. Aaron
 

Hi Aaron,

The EZ HD TV antenna is a great choice for the location. Install the antenna with the narrower end of the antenna aiming West. Along with the antenna use the AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8780 will provide the signal amplification needed to supply all 3 TV locations in your home. I'm confident that the EZ HD TV antenna and the AP 8780 preamplifier will provide good and reliable TV reception at your location.

Best Regards,
Denny

Hi Ken,

Hartford offers a good variety of stations but apparently don't offer the ABC network. There are two ABC station signals reaching your location one from up near Springfield and the other near New Haven.  You can receive all of the Hartford stations with the EZ HD antenna aiming Southeast. Along with the antenna use the AP 8700 preamplifier. This will provide all major networks except ABC.

To receive all of the Hartford stations plus several others including ABC the HD Stacker antenna is the best choice. Along with the Stacker antenna I recommend the HDA 100 signal amplifier installed inline on the antenna side of the signal splitter. This installation will also require a rotor so you can aim the antenna to the appropriate direction.

If you have any questions or if I can assist you further please don't hesitate to contact me.

Best Regards,
Denny Duplessis

Denny, Thanks for the info.

I am wondering, do you think it would be possible to point the HD Stacker between the Hartford stations and ABC in New Haven and pick up everything without a rotor?

Thanks you, Ken

Ken,

Yes, you can use the HD Stacker TV antenna and receive both the Hartford stations and the ABC from New Haven.  Because the New Haven signal is weaker favor the Southerly direction when aiming the antenna. Likely about 160 to 165 degrees on the compass will be the sweet spot. Using this method go with the AP 8700 preamplifier instead of the HDA 100 amplifier recommended below.
