QUESTIONS

Antenna Questions?

Indoor vs Outdoor Antenna

An outdoor antenna by far is the best option. In most cases indoor antennas will not get all the channels you want especially the VHF channels 9 and 11. Plus consistency will vary by season. This is the case for most homes in the Western New York unless your within 5 miles of the 3 transmitting towers. We highly recommend outdoor antennas.  

 

Directional vs Multi-Directional Antenna?

Directional antennas are the best bet as they receive a stronger signal than multi-directional antennas. In WNY we are lucky as the 3 transmitting towers that carry all the network and HDTV channels are located with thirty miles of each other. As a result we recommend omni-directional antennas. Locally we average between 42 and 49 channels. Some homes may receive channels 5 and 9 out of Toronto (based on geographic locations). We offer a one year warranty on signal reception.

Placement of the Antenna

The general rule is place the antenna on a roof. Structures like walls, cabinets, trees and your neighbor’s home blocks or weakens the signal especial if you are not in line of sight of where the signal is being transmitted. Attic installations also usually work but they usually require an antenna upgrade to compensate for the signal knockdown caused by being place in the attic. Antenna upgrades are not expensive. However pulling the wire from the attic to the D mark or utility room to connect to your home is. That’s way the majority of our customers opt for garage attic installations as they are less expensive.

Amplified or Non-Amplified Antennas

Many companies sell amplified antennas however in most cases these antennas are sold over the internet. First, in most cases these antennas do not work and receiving a refund is virtually impossible. Secondly 80% of the Queen City and Suburban installations do not need a pre-amped antenna. If amplification is required its best to upgrade the antenna or purchase a distributor amplifier. This is the most reliable and cost effective way to amplify your signal.

Do-It-Yourself or Professional

Putting up an antenna on your roof can be done and in some cases save you money but before you attempt it consider these factors.                                               

  1. Do you have the time?

  2. Consider your safety and have the right equipment especially safety ladders.

  3. A good antenna runs approximately $150.00

  4. Do you have the tools to strip the coax and connect the compression properly?

  5. Do you understand the wiring in your home?

  6. Can you test tone to properly isolate your internet?

  7. Do you know how to ground the antenna properly from a lighting strike? This is also necessary for attic installations.

  8. Do you have a signal meter to align the antenna? Being off two degrees is the difference between pixel free reception and getting all the channels you want.

  9. Lastly over 35% of our installations are do-it yourself homeowners who just can’t make it work and there is no warranty for their efforts.
