4. Will the antenna be installed outside above the roofline, in the attic, etc...?: Roof mount (chimmney?)
5. 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?: 1
6. 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 ft
7. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: Real problem trees at least 50 ft and a hill 60 ft between Raleigh transmitters and house

Hi Tom,

I see the hill you mentioned. As you indicated your location is in some dense trees that look to be at least 500 feet deep in the direction to the transmitters before it opens up. Even though the TV transmitting location is only 34 miles away from your location I recommend the HD Stacker TV antenna. The performance of the Stacker will counteract the effects of the hill and trees. Install the antenna aiming South/Southeast.

Because you're only supplying 1 TV from the antenna and the cable run is relatively short signal amplification should not be needed. If a signal splitter is introduced into the system use the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier.

If you have any further questions please ask.

Hi Charles,

To receive one channel of every major network the antenna will have to receive the Raleigh channels. The signals from Raleigh are rated moderate in strength at your location. In most cases the HD Stacker TV antenna can receive signals of this signal strength rating from an attic location. However, I'm a little concerned with the planks rather than OSB. Planks have a tendency to obstruct the signal more than OSB reducing strength. Bottom line no antenna will work better than the HD Stacker but I can't be absolutely certain it will work in the attic under these conditions. There is a slight risk that the antenna may require outside installation to get reliable reception on all channels.

Along with the antenna use the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8700 will enhance performance providing the best possible reception. 

If you have any further questions please ask.

Hello Doug,

The antenna best suited to receive the Greensboro stations is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the antenna I suggest the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. If you only care to receive Greensboro stations the antenna can be installed in a stationary position aiming north. Stations from Raleigh, Fayetteville, Charlotte and Florence are available if you were to use an antenna rotor.

If you have any questions please feel free to reply.

Hi John,

Your selection for the HD Stacker TV antenna and the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier is perfect. However, I don't think you'll need the HDA 200 distribution amplifier. The AP 8700 should easily supply enough signal boost to deliver a strong signal to all 4 TV locations. I also think the attic location will work. Install the antenna aiming South in accordance to the arrow in the attached picture.

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

4. Will the antenna be installed outside above the roof line or in the attic, other: Hopefully in attic but outside is fine too.
5. If the antenna will be installed in the attic what kind of building materials will the TV signal have to penetrate to reach the antenna in the attic?: Asphalt shingles

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: There's a splitter in attic for satellite.

Hi Mitzi,

Considering all of the reception data for the location the EZ HD antenna is a very good choice for reliable reception. It should work great in the attic. Install the antenna aiming North/Northeast. Along with the antenna I recommend the AP 8700 preamplifier. The AP 8700 will boost the signal delivering a strong signal to all 3 TV locations in your home. You will likely need to replace the signal splitter. Signal splitters designed for satellite signals do not work for antenna signals.

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

Hi Steve,
 
The transmitting towers for CBS, NBC, CW and MYTV are located SSW of your location. The transmitters for FOX, ABC, PBS and IND are located to your SSE. The best option under the circumstances is the EZ HD dual TV antenna system kit #1. This package comes with two antennas, antenna coupler, preamplifier and the short coax cables that will allow you to make all of the connections from the antennas to the coupler and coupler to the mast mounted preamplifier.
 
Aim one antenna SSE and the other SSW. Once installed there would be no need for antenna adjustment when changing channels. In other words, all TVs could view any channel simultaneously from both directions.
 
The only other option I see would be to use a single antenna with a rotor.
 
The preamplifier should handle the amplification needed to supply all TV locations in your home.

If you have questions please feel free to ask.

Hello Scott,

All of the transmitters are located to your South except PBS which is West out of Chapel Hill. There are both VHF and UHF signals available requiring a VHF/UHF antenna. To receive all of the channels with the possible exception of PBS install the EZ HD antenna aiming South. To receive all of the channels including PBS install the HD Stacker TV antenna aiming Southwest. The HD Stacker has a receiving beam width wide enough to receive both locations at the same time. If you already have a suitable amplifier it should work. If you're not sure about the amplifier send me the model number so I can make certain it will work for the application.

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.: Thank you for your help!!

Hello Lee,

There are a couple of options at your location depending on which channels you want to receive. There are local stations and there are distant stations.

1. To receive the local stations ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, ION plus all sub channels I recommend the MS 1000 omni-directional antenna. Along with the antenna use the AP 8780 antenna preamplifier.

2. To receive all of the above channels plus additional more distant stations use the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the antenna use the HDP 269 preamplifier and the HDA 100 distribution amplifier and a rotor to aim the antenna. Install the HDA 100 in line just before the signal splitter on the antenna side of the splitter. Most of the additional stations received with this system will be repeat networks of what can be received with suggestion number 1 above.

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

Winston Salem, NC 27106

Name: David
1. Address: ___________________ Winston Salem North Carolina 27106
2. Email: _______________
3. Approximately how many feet above ground level will the antenna be installed?: 18
4. Will the antenna be installed outside above the roofline, in the attic, etc...?: Outside, about 4' above roofline
5. 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?: I currently have a 4-way splitter (one into four) to supply three rooms plus one HDHomeRun Dual for the network.
6. 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: The longest run from antenna to a TV is about 80' (20' from ant. to splitter, then abt 60 to the TV)
7. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: We currently have a Winegard MS-2002. That worked fairly well, but lately CBS 2.1 (ch51) and FOX 8.1 (ch35) are terrible. We'd like to avoid using a rotor so the TVs can watch different channels. Hopefully there is an antenna that we can aim at the weaker stations and will still pick up the others.

Hi David,

Unfortunately coupling a directional antenna with an omnidirectional as you suggested doesn't work well. I think the best solution is to use the EZ HD dual antenna system kit #2. The kit comes with two EZ HD antennas, antenna coupler, preamplifier and all connecting cables. Install one antenna aiming North and the other East/Southeast.

This system will definitely improve reception on all channels.
