Antenna Update 2020 : 4-13-20

We ordered several different antennas from online sources. They all claimed to work for Low VHF. When they arrived, some of them actually had printed right on the box that they would not work for Low VHF. Others did not work either. They all were returned.

We learned to look at the manufacturers web sites and at the specs for their antennas. Antennas capable of receiving Low VHF must receive 54-216 MHz.

We will provide a list of suggested antennas shortly. We are in final stages of testing the last one before posting the list!

We tested this last week all over the Metro area. Our engineer traveled in his car. He would stop, pull the antenna out of the back seat and hold it by hand above his head. Watching a portable TV, he could see good clear pictures at all these locations listed below. Check out the list to see if he was near where you live.
