All the channels from your co-workers location are UHF except for ABC (11.1) on RF 11.

At 35 ft AGL all stations are line-of-sight, so I would think a VHF high/UHF antenna would do, something like a Winegard HD7694 should do.

Point it at Louisville and you will get ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, MYN and PBS.

A pre-amp is probably not necessary unless multiple splitters are used (each split cuts the signal in half).

Signals would also be available from Indianapolis and Cincinatti, but a rotator would be needed, but not necessaryof the majority of the channels.

The second co-ordinates receive the same Louisville channels, being only 17 miles from Louisville - same antenna recommended, pointed about 70 degrees ENE.

Thank you for the quick reply. Sorry about the lon/lat stats, but the system wouldn't let me post the TVFool link. I'm at the end right side of Ponder in the 47112 zip code.

I would like to be able to watch some stations in neighboring cities. We used to have WTVW on our local cable station before Insight took them over, but then that was back in the analog days. Looks like WNIN might be possible now. Would you still recommend the Winegard? Do you recommend a company for the antenna mast and rotor?

Thank you.

Does anyone know if the VIP 306 or 307 might still be available? I know they've been discontinued, but is it possible some retailer may still have them?

The supply of VIP 306 and 307s appears to have dried up, however, if you need a great VHF antenna, I noticed that Warren Electron ics has a Channel Master Quantum 1110 and a 1111 NOS at reasonable prices. You might want to give them a call...

It would be good for you to make a new prescription so I can sticky it and unstick this thread.
