Hello John,

The antenna best suited for the reception conditions at you location is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the antenna I recommend the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8700 will enhance the overall performance while boosting the signal delivering a strong TV signal to both TVs in your home. 

Yes, an antenna rotor is a good idea. At your location using the HD Stacker antenna you can receive the Toledo, Detroit and most of the Lansing channels if the antenna is capable of rotation.

If you have any questions please feel free to reply.

Hello David,

Channel 3 CBS is almost always the weakest and hardest channel to receive in your area. Considering everything I recommend the HD Stacker TV antenna. The majority of the station transmitters are located to your Southeast except channel 13 which is NNE. I think if you were to install the HD Stacker aiming SE channel 13 would come in without the need for a rotor. Along with the antenna I suggest the HDA 100 signal amplifier installed in line on the antenna side of the signal splitter. The HDA 100 will provide the signal boost needed to supply the 4 TV locations within your home.

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

Hi Ed,

The majority of the TV signals reaching your location are from Detroit. The signals range from moderate to weak in strength. The antenna best suited to receive both moderate and weak VHF and UHF signals is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming South/Southwest. When supplying signal to 1 TV without the use of a signal splitter with a relatively short cable run from the antenna to the TV a signal amplifier should not be needed. If a signal splitter is introduced into the system use the AP 8700 preamplifier to counteract the effects of the splitter.

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

Hello Kevin,

As you mentioned, there is some rather dense forestry surrounding your location. Plus there is a building with a metal roof not to far from your location to the ENE in the path to the Detroit station transmitters. Considering all of the reception conditions I recommend the HD Stacker TV antenna. This antenna is a high performance antenna and should offset the effects of the trees. The antenna can be installed in a stationary position aiming North/Northeast at about 60 degrees on the compass. In this position you will receive all of the Detroit channels. In addition to Detroit stations there are both Toledo and Lansing stations available. To receive these channels in addition to the Detroit channels will require a rotor so you can aim the antenna appropriately. When supply only 1 TV without a signal splitter a signal amplifier should not be needed.

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

Hello Dick,

No doubt the HD Stacker TV antenna is best suited for the reception conditions at your location. Along with the antenna use the AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. The TV station transmitters are located in various directions requiring a rotor to aim the antenna to the appropriate direction. This system will provide reception from Cadallac, Bay City/Flint/Saganaw, Grand Rapids and most Lansing channels.

7. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: there are some trees nearby that are higher than the antenna

Hello Jim,
 
According to the reception data Fort Wayne is where the majority of the signals reaching your location come from. There are some Lansing channels available and perhaps Toledo but Fort Wayne will provide one channel of every major broadcast network.
 
The antenna best suited for the reception conditions is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the antenna I recommend the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. This combination will provide maximum performance at your location. The antenna can be installed aiming SSW at about 215 degrees on the compass and receive all of the Fort Wayne channels. Another option is to install a rotor so you can aim the antenna. If you aim the antenna in addition to the Fort Wayne channels you will be able to receive some of the Lansing channels, maybe Toledo and a couple of independent channels. I don't think the trees will be much of a factor.

If you need anything just let me know.

Hi George,
 
I retrieved the reception data for the location. There are both VHF and UHF signals available ranging in signal strength from strong to weak. You have a couple of options at your location depending upon which TV channels you want to receive.

1. Use the EZ HD TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming East/Northeast. Along with the antenna I suggest the HDA 100 signal amplifier. Install the HDA 100 inline on the antenna side of the signal splitter. The HDA 100 will enhance the performance and deliver a strong reliable signal to all 4 TV locations within your home. This system will receive all of the Detroit area channels.

2. Use the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the HD Stacker install a rotor so you can aim the antenna. Use the HDA 100 amplifier in the same manner as suggested above. This system will provide reception on the Detroit, Toledo and some Lansing channels.

I'm very confident you'll get excellent reception with either option above.

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: 40-50 ft

Hello Allen,

The antenna best suited for the location is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming South/Southeast. In this position you will receive 3, 8, 13, 17, 35, 41, 54, 64 plus all sub channels. When supplying only one TV without the use of a signal splitter a signal amplifier should not be needed. If in the future a signal splitter is added I suggest you amplify the signal using the HDA 100 signal amplifier. Install the HDA 100 inline on the antenna side of the signal splitter.

If you have any questions please feel free to reply.

8. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: Would like both flint and Detroit stations

Hello Paul,

Some of the TV signals from Detroit are considered weak but available and the Flint area signals are considered strong. The antenna best suited for the reception conditions at your location is the HD Stacker TV antenna. I considered coupling two antennas together to avoid a rotor but about 4 or 5 channels from Detroit are too weak for this method. The best option to receive all of the channels reliably is the HD Sacker antenna, AP 8700 antenna preamplifier and the 9521A Channel Master rotor. For the most part I think many times the Flint channels will come in with the antenna aimed at Detroit but I'm sure there will be times when the antenna will need to be turned northerly for Flint/Saginaw.

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

Hi Grant,
 
I've actually installed TV antennas in your area in the past. One installation I recall is on 146th Ave out near the lakeshore.
 
The towers for 3, 8, 17, 41 and 64 are located to your ESE and 13, 35 and 54 are NE. The best option to receive all channels without the use of a rotor is the
EZ HD Bi-directional TV antenna kit #1. This kit contains two EZ HD antennas, antenna coupler, AP 8700 preamplifier and 3 short coax cables to make all connection from both antennas to the coupler and the coupler to the preamplifier.
 
Aim one antenna Northeast and the other East/Southeast. This set up will receive all available channels without the need for a rotor.

If you have any questions just ask.

8. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: I am considering your stacker package with a tripod and rotor for my area, is there a better recommendation? thanks

Hi Gary,

I don't think there's a better option than the HD Stacker TV antenna. I suggest HD Stacker antenna kit #6. This package comes with the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier which is the best choice for the conditions. To receive all available channels a antenna rotor will be needed to aim the antenna to the appropriate direction.

According to the data you will easily receive all Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo channels and most if not all channels from Lansing and South Bend channels. A couple of years back my son and I installed a Stacker system in Galesburg and it did very well. The Battle Creek train station also uses the Stacker.

Hi Joe,

We have very good success using the HD Stacker TV antenna in your area. You can aim the antenna East/Southeast and get all of the Flint, Saginaw, and Bay City channels 5, 12, 19, 25, 46, 49, 66 and maybe 14 off of the back of the antenna.  If you add in a rotor so you can rotate the antenna in addition to the channels above you will receive 9, and 14 along with a couple of the Lansing channels 6 and 23. There may be additional channels available but these are the ones that should be able to be counted on.

Along with the antenna use the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8700 will enhance the all around performance and boost the signal to supply both TV locations in your home.

Hello Raymond,

I am going to offer two options.

1. Use the EZ HD TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming South/Southwest to receive the Lansing stations or North/Northeast to receive the Flint/Saganaw/Bay City stations. Along with the antenna use the AP 8700 preamplifier.

2. Use the EZ HD bi-directional antenna system #1. This kit comes with two EZ HD antennas, one antenna coupler, one AP 8700 preamplifier and three short coax cable lengths to make connection from the antennas to the coupler and from the coupler to the preamplifier. Install one antenna aiming NNE and the other antenna aiming SSW. This system will provide reception from both the NNE (Flint/Saganaw/Bay City) and the SSW (Lansing) without any moving parts.

Hello Joe,
 
The antenna best suited to meet the reception conditions at your location is the EZ HD TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming north. Along with the antenna I recommend the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8700 will boost the signal and counteract the effects of the 200 foot cable run and the signal splitter.

If you have any questions please feel free to reply.

Thanks for contacting Denny's Antenna Sales.

Hi Mike,
 
There are both VHF and UHF TV signals available. A very good antenna choice is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the Stacker use the AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8780 will boost the antenna signal and provide a strong reliable signal to all 3 TV locations.
 
The antenna can be installed aiming North/Northeast and receive at least one channel of every network from Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. Another option is to use a rotor and receive GR, Kzoo and South Bend.
 
I'm very confident that the recommend equipment will provide excellent reception at your location.

Hi Michael,

I retrieved the reception data and there are signals from both Lansing and Flint reaching your location. I think a very good choice at this location is the MS 1000 omnidirectional TV antenna and the AP 8700 preamplifier. This set up will receive both the Lansing and Flint.

If you have any further questions please ask.

Hi Jeff,
 
There's a couple of options at your location. There are both VHF and UHF TV signals available. None of the signals are very strong. There are receivable channels located in several directions from your location.
 
Option 1.
 
I recommend the HD Stacker TV antenna. Aim the antenna NNE at about 20 degrees on the compass. Along with the antenna use the AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. This option will provide reception from Lansing. The antenna in this position will receive one channel of every major broadcast network. ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW plus all sub channels offered by these stations.

Option 2.
 
Add an antenna rotor to the above recommendation allowing you to aim the antenna. In addition to the Lansing channels aiming the antenna will receive some Fort Wayne, South Bend, Grand Rapids and Toledo channels. Most of these additional channels will be repeat network programming but there will be some additional programming not provided by the Lansing channels.

If you have any question please ask.

4. Will the antenna be installed outside above the roofline or in the attic, other: On a 40' TV Tower with a 30' telescoping pole. (Extended only about 15')
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?: Really only need 1 TV. Might be nice for 2-3 but not vital as 98% viewing is in 1 room.
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: 65-90'
8. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: Trying to get WMMT-3 and WOOD-8, Thinking of stacking YA1713's. Have a CM-4228HD with a RCA TVPRAMP1R Digital Signal Preamplifier and can sometimes get WOOD-8 but rarely WMMT-3

Hello Eric,

My recommendation for your location is the HD Stacker TV antenna along with the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. Not a big fan of RCA amplifier's. The Hd Stacker should provide reception from both channel 3 and 8.

If you have any questions please feel free to reply.

Thanks for contacting Denny's Antenna Sales.

Hello James,

The TV signals reaching your location are somewhat weak but very receivable. The antenna best suited for the conditions is the HD Stacker TV antenna. The antenna should be installed aiming south/southwest. Along with the antenna I recommend a preamplifier. If a signal splitter is not in use the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier is best. If a signal splitter will be in line use the AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. This will provide reception on all of the Green Bay stations. 

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