Re: [TV_Antennas] indoor antenna for channel 7 & 9

Hello all,



In reference to the Real TV channels, I can easily pickup the UHF channels.



But I have lost channel 7 & 9.



I did receive 7 & 9 for about two months, but about one month ago (May 2013), I have lost these two signals. The trees in the path to the tower are very minimal & are almost non-existent.



I am using a indoor Phillips amplified antenna

(Model: MANT310/MAN310F). It has been a great antenna.



I also tried rabbit ears rods (no brand name)that came with A TV set twenty years ago. Results : No advantage over My Phillips antenna.



I called channel 7; They lacked any specific info advice.



I called channel 9; Engineer said extend rods all the way out, then shorten the rods about half-way. He said if that does not work, consider calling Winegard (because of their established history).



Can anybody recommend an antenna that I can use indoors.



Thank you,

mike

How much room do u have? .I ask b/c I have a .6' Winegard mounted in the attic. .I get channels w/ that I've never got w/ an indoor antenna. .Otherwise, I've noticed minimal differences among indoor antennas.

For some reason the.architect blocked most of the attic off with drywall,

I am open to additional coments.
