Antenna Recommendations:
Our Goat Mountain site is transmitting in both VHF and UHF frequencies.

If you try a different antenna, make sure it is "directional" (as opposed to "omnidirectional").

Do I need a signal preamplifier ("booster")?
If you have a good view to the transmitter site, you can try using an antenna and no signal preamplifier. If you find the the signal is too weak, you can then add an amplifier. We recommend a signal preamplifier for most subscribers unless you are close to a transmitter site and have an unobstructed view (line-of-sight) to the site. The best type has a part that mounts at the antenna and is often called an "outdoor preamplifier" or "outdoor amplifier". Example:

What about the cable from the antenna to the TV?
We recommend using RG6 coax cable for better performance.

If you have questions about the conversion or if you have found additional information that we could share on this page, please contact Paul.
