Installing an OTA (Over the Air) Antenna

A couple weeks ago week, we gave an overview of the various types of OTA antennas and promised an installation of some of these antennas. Our office is located about 15 miles South of Dayton and 45 miles North of Cincinnati. Both cities offer a good amount of channels so we decided to test out some of our Stellar Labs antennas and see how well they perform. In an attempt to receive as many channels from both cities as possible, we decided to mount two directional antennas on a mast; one pointing at Cincinnati, and one pointing at Dayton.

Outdoor TV & Radio Antennas

Ideal for back-up of subscription television services, or when cutting the cable altogether, September is a great time to install a new TV antenna on the roof. We’ve put together several systems which are perfect for most locations across the country. Since the digital changeover, most stations, even those with channel designations between 2 and 13, have been moved to UHF, so there is no need for a VHF antenna. However, this is not always the case. If you are not sure about your specific channels, there are several online resources available. One particular favorite is FCC DTV Maps. Simply enter your zip code and a map of all receivable stations is provided.
