OTOH, for epa WCFE is about 180 degrees (186 to be exact) from camp fortune, so those stations should be picked up on the rear lobe of the antenna and Herberts Corners is about 45 degrees from it, which will put it nicely on a side lobe of an HD-8800 or CM-4228. WNYF is really a long shot and will likely only be receivable on tropo. days.epa, your strongest american station from your TVFool report is WCFE, followed by WNPI. By pointing at WCFE, you get PBS. By pointing at WNPI, you get PBS, but also have a shot at CBS/Fox from WNYF in the same tower - if you're lucky, once in a while.
You don't need a compass. Use TVFool's online maps feature, and position the antenna location exactly, using the google satellite mode. Then click on the "show lines to transmitters" check box. You might need to zoom out to identify which line goes to the WNPI/WNYF tower in South Colton. Then zoom back in all the way, and identify landmarks you could se from your rooftop that you could use to line up your antenna. (Say, a house down the street, or some nearby trees.)I pointed the antenna (without using compass) to opposite side of camp fortune (south-west). no difference in the digital stations (still 6). Will try with compass during the weekend. and probably a little higher (20 feet)
Hi,Sorry, I meant south-east. I did zoom-out/zoom-in, and pointed the antenna to what I think it should be (probably not exactly, because there are couple of trees). will try more during the weekend.
Thanks again for your help...
