Hi Janel,

The TV transmitting towers are located west-northwest and south/southwest from your location. The signals are too weak to use an omni-directional or multi-directional antenna. Your best choice to avoid turning the antenna with a rotor is to install the EZ HD bi-directional antenna system. This system provides two EZ HD antennas, antenna coupler, preamplifier and the short coax cables to make the connections from the antennas to the coupler and from the coupler to the preamplifier. Install one antenna aiming northwest and the other antenna southwest.

I'm sorry I don't know of an installer in your area. It's not that difficult if someone there is capable of getting on the roof. Last year I helped a 78 year old women in Pennsylvania install a complete antenna system.  

If you have any questions please feel free to reply.

Hello Steve,

The majority of the stations in your area are transmitting from a location near Davenport. The signals are VHF and UHF frequencies and are rated from strong to moderate in strength. The antenna best suited for the reception conditions is the EZ HD antenna. Along with the antenna a preamplifier would be beneficial. A very good choice when supplying 2 TVs is the AP 8700 preamplifier. This combination will provide good and reliable reception at your location. 

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

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: 75' max
8. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: No local stations available; we currently get 2 stations from the Cedar Rapids area: 7.1 (Receive Power: -72 dBm) & 9.1 (Receive Power: -78 dBm) approx. 50 miles distance with an antenna that has only 1 boom and is missing some of the arms. Other stations available are 4.1 (Receive Power: -83 dBm), 2.1 (Receive Power: -84 dBm). These 4 stations are in the weak signal strength column and are separated by more than 40 degrees. Stations 32.1 (Receive Power: -87 dBm) and 12.1 (Receive Power: -97 dBm) are in the no signal coverage column. I have looked at the HD Stacker and am very impressed by its specifications and size, but I am uncertain on amplification/rotors etc.

Hi Bill,

In your area there is a rare low band VHF signal. CBS 4.1 is broadcasting a low band VHF signal. Frankly the
HD 7084P TV antenna is better designed to receive low band VHF signals. Unfortunately, this is a large antenna compared to the Hd Stacker but it's better suited to the low band signal frequency and does a very good job on high band VHF and UHF signals. I think it's the all around best choice.

The amplifier of choice is the
AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. UHF signals require more amplification than VHF signals and the AP 8780 has extra UHF signal amplification.

We offer the
Channel Master 9521A antenna rotor. We have found it to be the best consumer grade rotor available.

If you have any questions please ask.

Hello James,

All of the TV stations in your area are broadcasting on the UHF frequency band. A very good choice is the HD 9032 UHF TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming south/southwest. Along with the antenna I recommend the AP 4700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 4700 will boost the antenna signal providing a strong signal to all 3 TV locations within your home.

Below I have included links to the suggested items.
 
James, if you have any questions please feel free to reply.

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 - 40ft? Tv is on ground level of house

Hello Mathew,

There are both VHF and UHF TV signals available. In fact there is one low band VHF signal from ABC 5.1. Unfortunately low band VHF signals require a large antenna to be received properly. The antenna best suited to receive all of the channels including the low band signal is the HD 7082P antenna. The antenna should be installed with the narrower end of the antenna aiming North/Northeast. This antenna will work great in the attic. Along with the antenna I suggest the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8700 will boost the antenna signal and insure a strong signal reaches all of the TVs in your home.

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

8. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: W live in a fairly high wind area. Old antenna currently has a non working rotator and I would prefer not to use one if I don't have to.

Hello Mark,
 
You can get most of the major networks at your location without the use of a rotor. The antenna best suited for the reception conditions at your location is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming NNE at about 35 degrees on the compass. The reception will be best if along with the antenna you install the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier.
 
BTW. Because of the design and quality of the HD Stacker it is an excellent antenna for high wind areas.

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

Best TV antenna for:
Sioux City  51106

______________St
Sioux City, IA 51106

2 tv locations , Upstairs family room TV and basement entertainment room tv

Outside

Greetings,

I examined your reception conditions using data from two sources. The absolute best choice for consistent quality reception is the EZ-HD TV antenna. Along with the antenna I suggest the high signal input HDP 269 mast mounted preamplifier. You have a couple of very strong signals along with a couple of weaker ones. The HDP 269 has the high signal input capacity so it won't overload due to the strong signals and yet it will provide the signal amplification needed for the weaker stations.

The antenna can be installed in a fixed position with the narrower end of the antenna pointing Northeast. This position will provide great reception on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and PBS plus all sub channels provided by these stations.

I am very confident that this equipment properly installed (I'm here to help if you need it) will provide you with excellent reception.

If you would like step by step detailed installation information or if I can assist you in anyway, please contact me.

Best Regards,
Denny Duplessis

Hello Derek,

There are both VHF and UHF TV signals available at your location. The antenna best suited for the reception conditions is the EZ HD antenna. The antenna can be installed in a stationary position aiming North/Northeast at about 30 degrees on the compass. It's best if the antenna is mounted outdoors. When supply a single TV without a signal splitter in use a signal amplifier should not be needed.

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