Jackson area OTA

Post by kc8yqq » Wed May 01, 2019 11:01 am

IS there anyone in Buzzboard-land that lives in the Jackson area receiving TV stations from outside the market? If so, how high is the antenna (tower or rooftop)? What stations can you receive and how well? If you have any other comments, please feel free to add them.

I'm familiar with the various websites that tell me what I should be able to receive. I would like to hear from someone that actually receives these instead.

Thanks in advance.

OK, from an Antennas Direct antenna pointed WNW at 40' 10 miles north of Jackson:
6-1
10-1-3
17-1-4
23-1-4
41-1-4
43-1-6
47-1-5
53-1-2
64-1-3

I didn't note what net is on what channel, but that's the channels that come in reliably.
Yes this is a duplicate post from a post on another section of the board, but hey, I got off my ass and checked for you. :)

Thanks HD74. I was considering buying a tower back when I posted this topic. I live in Stonegate Farms and from amplified rabbit ears I can get 6, 10, 23, 47, and 53. Without the amplification, 23 is gone.

I'm amazed you can get all the locals with rabbit ears.
I would definitely recommend an outdoor antenna where you are.
I have an antenna mounted on a T-post outside my barn that works far better than an indoor antenna.
Just make sure you get one with a VHF element for WILX.
