- Kendall Park, NJ -
I was getting hammered by Dish Network. Paying $100+ a month for a HD receiver/dvr and 2 SD receivers. Tried those small Hi gain antennas w/ preamp found in Costco/Sams Club and dangled it out of the window and it did not work. Chose the DB8 due to its small size and also its vertical orientation. Assembled and w/ 100 ft RG-6 cable put it out of the window facing North and got 50+ DTV channels from North Jersey and New York Stations . I still would like to receive the Philadelphia Stations so I went to the other side of the house and reorient the antenna now facing South. Got another 50+ stations in the Philadelphia area. So what to do now. Either buy a rotator and mount the antenna at the top of the roof and risk myself falling off or buy another same antenna and mount it back to back and install where a Dish Antenna is located and safer to install. I chose the latter.
