Re: Directv

My DirecTV bill is more than twice my HughesNet bill.  It's awful.  Smiley Sad

Re: Directv

I get 24 chanels OTA and 80 miles from towers although elevated in mountains. Have one of these antennas with an amplifier at the antenna then a distribution amp. Granted towers are in one location. Others may need a rotator.

Re: Directv

I purchased anantenna from eBay for $28.99. Amplified and rotor on it, came with 32’ of coax. It is rated 150 mile range. I live in E TX, about 100 miles SE of Dallas and 60 Miles SW of Tyler. I was able to receive about 11 stations, mostly in Tyler, but a few in Dallas as well as Bryan/College station. I had it mounted on 10’ pole.

Re: Directv

I use a Channel Master antenna model number CM-3020 with a 100 mile range. When we lived in the Ozark Mtns (north central arkansas) we where a 100 miles from LR  and recieved around 25 channels. We had a motor so we could turn for best reception. 6 months ago we moved to Camden Tn (west tennessee). we recieve stations from Kentucky and Tn, Nashville and Jackson  we get about 39 channels we get abc,cbs,fox,me tv, some are the same like abc but their local news is different a  alot of there programing. but way more tv than I need. I rather be fishing hunting and enjoying life, tv is the pits and very depressing that is why i refuse to pay for it. they have a agenda they want to push on you, i am to old to change my beliefs.
