Default Tv Broadcasting station's low vhf ANTENNA'S

Well I can not believe in this day in history no antenna manufactures
Are not going to make a low VHF channels 2to6.Antenna what is the
Truth fully ancer is it becuse of the old new technology?
Where if you have the ANTENNA to receive the new old
technology. it seems that if no one make's ANTENNAs
Then you have no choice but to pay for CABLE or satellite tv.And
And yes I know the low band vhf outdoor tv antenna will be
Rather big.but it's better than the $200dollar bill to pay for
Tv shows,iT's time to wake up USA and don't let the tv antenna
technology disappear.give me your input?

They CAN make an antenna just for VHF-Low 2-6, but they are NOT going to do it unless they can make $MONEY$ on it.

You do have a choice, you can use an antenna that covers all three TV bands: VHF-Low, VHF-High, and UHF.

For strong signal areas, you can use the Winegard HD7000R:

https://manuals.solidsignal.com/HD7000R.pdf

or the RCA ANT3037XR with Low-Band add-on kit:
https://www.amazon.com/RCA-ANT3037XR.../dp/B00KVVBF2A

https://manuals.solidsignal.com/Manu..._ANT3037XR.pdf

or the Channel Master CM-3016:
https://www.channelmaster.com/Digita..._p/cm-3016.htm


for weak signal areas, you can use the Winegard HD8200U:
https://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=hd8200u

https://manuals.solidsignal.com/HD8200U_Specs.pdf

or the Channel Master CM-3020:
https://www.channelmaster.com/Digita..._p/cm-3020.htm

or the Channel Master CM-5020:

I added rabbit ears to my attic mounted CM4228 to get channels 2,6, and 12. Cost: $0.00 - I had them in my parts box.

Good idea for strong signal areas.

I hope you used a UVSJ UHF/VHF combiner to combine the rabbit ears with the 4228.

Nope... twinlead connected directly to the 300 Ohm connector on the 4228.

That CAN work at some locations, but the rabbits ears might also pick up a UHF signal that will interfere with the same UHF signal from the 4228; you were lucky.

The rabbit ears in the link you gave has coax, not 300 ohm twinlead.

Call me lucky. Trying a "free" and hassle free resolution without negative impact is a good thing. Just sharing my experience.

The link was just an example.

LOL for real. Most OTA users do not want to DX. That's a different topic and hobby.
