I decided to try and cut the cord. For years I had cable, and then I switched to directv. My directv bill averaged $98 per month and really all I watched were the ESPN’s and the network channels. I decided to cut the cord. I have AT&T Internet so WatchESPN streams on my Roku and AppleTV’s at home perfectly. I thought that if I could get the network channels then I could cancel Directv.
The problem is, I am located about 50 miles from the broadcast tower and 2 of the 4 network channels are broadcast in VHF while the remaining channels are UHF. This would mean that I would need 2 antennas. So I went to antennasdirect.com and began researching.
2 websites that were a huge help were
Both websites have data on the closest television towers at your address. They show the frequencies and the direction in relation to your home. Over the air (OTA) television is directional meaning you antenna must be aimed at the tower broadcasting the channels you plan to pick up. (Especially the further you are from the broadcast tower).
I decided to order 2 antennas. UHF and VHF.
VHF antenna (Clearstream 5 – I highly recommend. It works great): https://www.antennasdirect.com/store/vhf.html
UHF antenna (DB8e – This antenna worked wonderfully as well): https://www.antennasdirect.com/store/DB8e-Ultra-Long-Range-Outdoor-DTV-Antenna.html
The clearstream came with a VHF/UHF antenna combiner. So I used the combiner to combine the two antennas. A combiner is nothing more than a splitter used backwards from what I could gather.
I intended on splitting my signal to 4 different televisions. Everything I read said that when you run long runs of coax cable, the television signal is diminished drastically. So, I purchased a pre-amp and a powered 4-way splitter.
4-way splitter: http://www.amazon.com/Antennas-Direct-CDA4-Distribution-Amplifier/dp/B0082ZJNW6/ref=pd_sim_e_6?ie=UTF8&refRID=0NDCZXJGZZ8ZK1PEMR6P
I decided I would install my antennas in the attic. I felt like I would get more life out of the cables, antennas, and splitters if they were out of the elements. I wasn’t sure if the signal strength would be strong enough but I thought I would try it, and if it didn’t work then I could mount onto the roof.
I installed the antennas in the attic and hoped I wouldn’t need the pre-amp or the powered splitter. The first thing I did was hook up a regular 4-way splitter and ran a channel search. All the desired channels came in, but the signal strength was too low and there was a lot of buffering. I decided to hook up the powered 4-way splitter and that increased the signal strength a bunch but still it was in the 65-70% range and that was not what I wanted. I then hooked up the pre-amp and boom! I had a 90% or more signal strength on all channels.
I also made sure to use only RG6 coax cable and cut the cables to be as short as possible.
Here are the RG6 cable tools I purchased.

I also used two mounts in the attic. They worked great. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000WOVD1Y/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
That’s it…that is all you need to get free OTA television. I was able to receive all the channels available in my market. WMAB 2/WMAE 12 (x.1 PBS/MPB, x.2 PBS HD, x.3 Create) WCBI (4.1 CBS, 4.2 MNTV, 4.3 The CW) W07BN-D (IND/TBN) WTVA (9.1 NBC, 9.2 ABC) W25AD (TBN) WLOV (27.1 Fox, 27.2 Me-TV, 27.3 This TV) W34DV/W39CA (UBN) WEPH (49.1 CTN)
The best part of all this, was calling Directv and canceling my service.
The location of this antenna is in my attic. The mount is screwed to the studs in the ceiling (flat part). With this setup, I can just barely fit the antenna. I have pretty much no way to adjust the tilt because it's pushed up against the ceiling. With a few extra inches, I feel like I would have better control. But the antenna works great in this location, so luckily I don't need that control. If you do, then get a longer version.
Also, because this is going into ceiling studs, I could only use 2 of the 4 lag bolts. In this location, that is fine, because it won't be in the elements. But if you are mounting outside, consider that that mounting holes may not get you a 100% solid mount.
I needed more height than what this offered, so I went to my local hardware store and bought an 8-foot piece of 1" diameter PVC tube to use as an extender. Much cheaper than buying a metal extender here on Amazon and it will last just as long. I extended my antenna 6 more feet higher. I drilled holes into the top of the PVC tube and ran wire to all four corners of my roof to keep the pvc steady in the wind. No problem! Simply put the PVC into the top of this mount and bolt it in. Works like a charm and I definitely recommend this J-Mount. Just be careful it fits your antenna diameter. The maximum diameter to insert any pvc tube, extender tube or antenna tube into the top of this mount is 1 inch! Of course, you can buy a slightly smaller diameter, but DO NOT buy a larger diameter extender unless you have an adapter to scale it down to 1" or smaller.
