Best TV antenna for:
La Crescenta, CA 91214

Hello Denny, Just wondering what you would recommend for me. I'm at _________ Manhattan Ave La Crescenta, CA 91214.

I checked out antennaweb and it tells me all of my channels are coming from the same area but when I point that direction (East) with my Terk indoor amplified TV antenna I only get a couple of the stronger channels 4.1 and 5.1. For channel 2.1 have to point North and elevate the direction of the antenna slightly upwards pointing to the mountains behind us. So I can't trust the view street level map option at antennaweb. Either way at least I know I could get those channels with maybe a multidirectional TV antenna but I don't get ABC, KCAL or FOX no matter where I point the antenna. There are mountains around us and we live in a valley. Any hope for us? I only bought the Terk TV antenna as an initial remedy but after researching I realize that an outdoor TV antenna is the only hope for me.

Greetings, I checked the reception data for your location. Antennaweb is not incorrect with the transmitter direction. What is likely happening the signals are bouncing off of the mountains and coming back to you from several different directions. This is called multi-path. Multi-path is a certain enemy of omnidirectional TV antennas. this condition can usually be remedy by using a direction TV antenna.

Since all of the TV transmitters are in the same direction your best choice for consistant quality reception is the EZ HD TV antenna. The EZ Hd antenna is a directional antenna and should eliminate the effects of the multi path signals. Along with the antenna I recommend the HDP 269 preamplifier. The EZ HD has been very successful in the Los Angeles area. It will provide many years of reliable service. The antenna should be installed in a stationary position with the narrower end of the antenna aiming East/Northeast.

Hello Ron,

The antenna best suited to meet the reception conditions at your location is the EZ HD TV antenna. We have a lot of these antennas in your area and numerous reports from very satisfied customer's. The antenna should be installed aiming north-northwest. To supply signal to both TVs with a 100 foot cable run I suggest the HDA 100 signal amplifier installed in line on the antenna side of the signal splitter.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Hello Shawn,

At your location the San Francisco TV signals are being blocked by mountains and the signals are likely not strong enough to produce reliable reception.

There are TV stations located to your East/Southeast. To receive these channels I recommend the EZ HD TV antenna. Install the antenna aiming ESE. In this position the antenna will receive NBC, FOX, CBS, PBS, UNI plus all sub channels offered by these stations. Along with the antenna I suggest the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8700 will enhance the overall performance and boost the signal to both TV locations in your home.

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

Hi Frank,

The LA transmitters are only 23 miles from your location but there on the other side of the mountain. The data indicates about 10 channels will come in from the Los Angeles MT. Wilson TV transmitter location. There is another set of TV transmitter on a mountain just East of Bakersfield that will also come in at your location. Considering everything my recommendation is for the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the antenna I suggest the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. If you install a antenna rotor you can aim the antenna South for LA and Northeast for Bakersfield you should have no problem receiving one channel of every major broadcast network.

If you have any questions please ask.

Loomis, California 95650

We live at _________ lane in Loomis, CA 95650. Here's the channels we are currently get: 3, 6, 10, 13, 31, 40 and 58. Of these 3 is the worst and 13 is the best. The other channels vary. Previously we had satellite with no reception problems. We have not as of yet purchased an HDTV but intend to do so.

Debbie K.

Greetings Debbie, All of the main network TV transmitters are all in the same direction to your South. Actually there a little West of South at about 190 degrees on the compass. A very good choice for the location is the EZ HD TV antenna. Along with the antenna use the HDP 269 antenna preamplifier. This combination will provide excellent results at your location. Install the antenna in a stationary position with the narrower end of the TV antenna aiming SSW at about 190 degrees on the compass.

Best TV antenna for:
Los Angeles, California 90035

Great web site! I'm ready to buy. Could you please recommend one of TV antennas in your webstore? I'm in West Los Angeles, CA, 90035. I want to do an attic installation. I figure you've sold plenty to Los Angeles residents so it would be a no brainer for you.
Thank you, David ______

Hi David,

You're correct we do have a lot of customers in the LA area. In the attic the EZ HD TV antenna should be a great choice for your location. The TV antenna should be installed with the narrower end of the antenna aiming North/Northeast. If the coax cable run from the TV antenna to the TV is 50 feet or less and a signal splitter will not be in use signal amplification should not be needed. If a signal splitter will be in use install the HDA 100 signal distribution amplifier in line on the antenna side of the signal splitter. If you haven't already you may want to check out our page TV antenna attic mount.

Best Regards, Denny

Update from David. EZ HD antenna purchased, received and installed today. WOW FANTASTIC RESULTS! GE AT ANTENNA! I expanded the folding antenna elements and lay the EZ HD TV antenna on the back of a chair in my living room. I had it pointing in the general direction of the broadcast towers here in LA. I ran a coax cable from the antenna to my Channel Master HDTV converter box. I ran a channel scan and was astounded to see close to 100 channels picked up by the EZ HD antenna. This was with it just lying on the chair in my living room. I knew then that an attic installation would be just fine. So I mounted it in my attic with room to adjust the direction. I ran another channel scan and picked up another couple of channels. Reception is perfect and strong. I'm really impressed with the power of this "compact" little antenna. I'm so happy I went with the EZ HD TV antenna via the internet order instead of buying a much larger antenna and more expensive antenna locally. Thanks Denny.

Best TV antenna for:
Los Angeles, CA 90012

Hi Denny, I'm looking for a TV antenna for my location at _________ Dr. Los Angeles, CA. 90012. I'm interested in digital HDTV reception. My neighbor has a square plastic antenna that gets the channels but they drop in and out a lot at certain times of the day. What antenna do you suggest for my location that wouldn't do this? Thanks in advance, Jeremy.

Hello Jeremy,

Many antenna designers lost sight of the real goal of a TV antenna and that's to provide good TV reception. It doesn't matter how good the TV antenna looks if the reception is poor. In the past few years the focus for some antenna manufactures has been more on how the antenna looks than how it performs. I designed a TV antenna to meet today's digital TV reception needs and I call it the EZ HD TV antenna. It's as small as we can make it without jeopardizing performance. As a matter of fact we have a page designated just for Los Angeles digital TV reception. I suggest you check it out. The EZ HD TV antenna is a great choice for your location.

Take Care, Denny

Update from Jeremy. I have to tell you the EZ HD antenna has been working great. My neighbor with the plastic box antenna just ordered one his name is Ray _______. Thank you for your help and advice.

Mckinleyville, CA 95519

I just moved into a new house that is served by cable TV. I want to replace the cable service with an antenna. Here are my particulars. I am currently using one TV maybe two in the future. I would really like to put the antenna in the attic. While my attic space is somewhat limited I could probably fit a small directional TV antenna (depending on which way it faced). The house is prewired with two coax cables runs from above the garage to the house distribution/junction box. I assume the runs were put there for local TV antenna feed. I intend to disconnect the cable feed and connect my TV antenna at that point. Unfortunately the original installer did not identify the cables. Any thoughts on identifying the cables. I estimate the cable run from the antenna to the TV to be about 100 feet. At this point I know just enough to be dangerous. The Channel Master CM 3010 Stealth antenna but I don't have a lot of confidence. My number one priority is to get the best possible reception. Based on my reading of your website I highly respect your expertise and would like your recommendation. Street address is _______ Drive, Mckinleyville, CA. 95519

Hi Stephen

Looking over the reception data for your location I wouldn't recommend the 3010 TV antenna. Some of the TV signals are simply too weak to expect this antenna will provide quality reception.

I know the attic space is limited but the smallest TV antenna I can recommend with confidence is the HD Stacker antenna. I'm afraid if you go with anything less than the HD Stacker TV antenna you will experience pixellation and signal drop outs. The antenna should be installed with the narrower end of the antenna aiming Southeast. along with the antenna use the AP 8780 preamplifier. The AP 8780 will boost the signal at the antenna output and provide the signal amplification needed for the long coax cable run and provide enough signal for up 4 TV's connected TV's.

Best TV antenna for:
Moonpark, CA 93021

Hi Denny, I would like to know which outdoor TV antenna would be best for getting local TV channels. We live in a valley surrounded by hills (approx. 50-55 miles North of LA) and cannot get good TV reception and are forced to take either cable TV or a satellite dish. We get one channel without any antenna, but the reception is poor. I would like to be able to use the antenna and connect to 2 televisions (one in the family room at ground level and the other in the bedroom, one level above). I am not a technical person, so, please advise on what make and model TV antenna will work best. By the way, I tried rabbit ear indoor antenna and it did not work. I look forward to hearing from you soon. I am located on _________ at Moonpark, CA. 93012. Thanks, Kamesh.

Hi Kamesh, I retrieved the recption data for the location and you do have some issues with hills between your location and the transmitting towers. I think quality LA TV reception is available at your location. The TV transmitters are all in the same direction from your location so an antenna rotor will not be necessary. Considering the terrain (hills) my recommendation is the HD Stacker TV antenna. The Stacker antenna will provide high signal gain (performance) and will help to counteract the effects of the hills. Along with the HD Stacker TV antenna use the AP 8700 preamplifier for best results.

Hello Christian,

The TV transmitters are 46 miles to your East on MT. Wilson. There is signal obstruction in the line of sight to the transmitters but the data indicates that the channels are available when using a high performance TV antenna. The antenna best suited to meet these conditions is the HD Stacker TV antenna. Along with the antenna use AP 8780 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8780 will enhance the overall performance and boost the signal providing stronger signals to all 5 TV location in your home.

Install the antenna aiming east at about 80 degrees on the compass.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Hello Marianne,
 
The antenna best suited for the location is the EZ HD TV antenna. I'm not sure how you will mount it when in port. The antenna has a U bolt assembly that will except a pipe to 1 7/8' OD. I'm sure you can figure something out. The antenna should be aimed Southeast for best reception. In this position you will receive at least one channel of every major free broadcast network from San Diego.  With only 18 feet of coax cable from the antenna to the TV and no signal splitter in use the antenna will not require a signal amplifier.

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

Best TV antenna for:
Orange, CA 92868

Hello, I stumbled upon your website while doing some Internet research and found it very informative. I just had a few questions before I pull the trigger and make a purchase. First, I 'm looking at the Winegard MS 2000 TV antenna and was curious if you thought it would be good for my needs. I really am only concerned with getting local TV channels. My zip is 92868 and it looks like most channels are a little over thirty miles away. second, I an somewhat concerned about the amount of work that would need to go into a roof top installation since I am a renter. So I'm toying with the idea of installing a TV antenna in the attic. But was wondering if I do a chimney install, if less work (i.e., no drilling into the roof) than a roof top install. If I do decide to do an attic install, what steps do you recommend? Lastly, this is pretty basic question, but when running the coax cable from the TV antenna to the TV, do I just go straight from the TV antenna to the TV? Or do I run it to the main power source and then just hook the TV to one of the wall coax outputs? Thank you, Charles

Greetings Charles, I retrieved the reception data for the location and I believe the MS 2000 TV antenna is a good choice for you. As far as the attic mount vs. the roof top you'll find that roof top TV antenna installations almost always provide better reception. How much better the roof top will be depends upon what building materials the TV signals must penetrate to reach the TV antenna in the attic.

The coax cable must run directly from the antenna to the power supply that comes with the antenna and is usually mounted indoors. From the power supply you can then run the coax cable directly to the TV or you can run to a signal splitter and send the signal throughout the house and connect the TV to one of the wall coax outputs. If you use a signal splitter you will likely need a signal distribution amplifier to boost the signal. If a 2, 3 or 4 way signal splitter will be in use go with the HDA 100 signal amplifier. If a 6 or 8 way splitter will be in use I recommend the HDA 200 signal amplifier.The amplifier is installed before the signal splitter on the TV antenna side of the splitter. I hope I answered all of your question. If you need anything further please don't hesitate to contact me. Best regards, Denny

Hi Terry,

At your location the HD Stacker TV antenna is an excellent choice. I retrieved all available reception data including a reception report from an HD Stacker TV antenna customer located about 12 miles to your North and the HD Stacker is no doubt the best antenna choice. The majority of the TV stations are 85 miles to your South with transmitters located near Walnut Grove. There are a couple of channels to your North and one channel to the WNW. These additional three channels are duplicate (repeat) networks of what can be received with the antenna aiming South.

The HD Stacker antenna should be installed aiming South at about 165 degrees on the compass. If you want to receive the additional three channels to the North and WNW you will need to install a rotor to aim the TV antenna. Personally I wouldn't bother. You're not going to get anything on those three channels that you can't get with the antenna aiming South. there are a lot of free to air channels to your South.

When dividing the signal to supply two TV location within your home I recommend the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier. The AP 8700 will boost the signal and insure a good strong signal reaches both TV locations.

I'm completely confident that the combination of the HD Stacker antenna and the AP 8700 antenna preamplifier will provide outstanding and reliable results at your location.

Best Regards,
Denny
