The Best choice for free digital - HDTV -TV Antenna reception for the Jackson area is the EZ-HD or the HD Stacker antennas.
The Jacksonville free to air TV market is a good one. There are dozens of free channels available. All of the major network channels are available (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW, ION) plus independent channels and dozens of sub channels to numerous to mention.
There are 3 major channels in Jacksonville broadcasting a VHF TV signals.
This is important because most antennas available today are designed for UHF signals and perform poorly for the reception of VHF signals. The major VHF channels are PBS 7, ABC 25 and NBC 12. In addition these channels provide about a dozen sub channels all VHF signals.
Be aware that most antennas on the market today claim to be VHF capable when in fact they're not.
Just because I say it, Doesn't make it true.
If you're in doubt I suggest you contact the station engineer at any of the above stations to verify the information on this page.

The Jacksonville TV station reception map below is compiled from hundreds of actual customer reports using either the EZ HD or the HD Stacker antennas. If the antenna location is inside of the Green circle use the EZ HD antenna. If the antenna location is outside of the Green circle within the Blue circle use the HD Stacker antenna. TV reception from Jacksonville TV stations outside of the Blue circle is possible but is hit and miss no matter what antenna is used for reception. Both the EZ HD and the HD Stacker antennas have been physically fine tuned for optimum reception of the Jacksonville area TV stations digital TV signal frequencies.
