Laval (Fabreville) Results with a DB4
Originally I was going for a Winegard Square Shooter and at the last moment, following suggestions in the forum, I purchased a DB4 from TigerDirect. I received the antenna yesterday...and here are my comments.
Live in Laval, Fabreville, between the 13 and 15. I have a Westi with integrated tuner.
I started by placing the antenna in my living room a few feet above the TV on top of my wall unit. It was pointing south but was quite straight
-SRC,CBC and a few local analog channels clear
-WCAX and WPTZ scanned but with a lot of pixelization
-WFFF scanned but no signal
I then placed the antenna in one of our bedrooms, which faces south, and I set it on a book case facing out towards the window, with a slight angle towards the sky...results
-SRC,CBC,WCAX,WPTZ,PBS,WFFF all scanned and with great quality.
-TQS,TeleQuebec,Global very acceptable
-TVA,CTV slightly less acceptable but viewable if necessary
-ABC snowy, but normal i assume since they broadcast in the high VHF
Hope this info helps anyone undecided. Tonight I will try the antenna in my attic, before putting it outside on a J-mount
Thank you all for all your posts...that guided me in my choice
