Seriously, I knew that one was a loser. I'm wondering why TV Fool mentions them at all...

It lists what comes out of the computer simulation.

If you look at the compass diagram for that direction you will only see channels 20, 8 and 24 at the edge of the circle. KSAZ is even weaker.

No, but a friend in that area with a Sling box could stream it to you.

The TVFool interactive map saw you coming; it only goes to 500 feet.



It says -15.4 dB NM, but you are in a dead zone:

Alright, I'm a couple of days from putting my antenna in its permanent home. I have one last question...

the clamp that attaches it to the mast can accommodate several different angles. Should I angle it up on the first attempt, or leave it flat? I'm putting a 10' mast into a tripod that I've already secured over the peak of my roof, so I'd like to keep the takedowns/remounts to a minimum.
