HDTV Antenna Recommendation by Zip Code
Wonder which channels are available in your local area? How strong are the signals? Don’t know how to pick the best antenna in your location? Please take a few minutes to check this reception map. Simply enter the zip code and see the reception map that shows.
Reception map color indicators:
- Green: Indoor antennas and short-range outdoor antennas can usually pick up most green-tinted channels.
- Yellow: Antennas often need to at least be mounted in the attic to pick up yellow-tinted channels.
- Brown: Antennas must be mounted on rooftops to have a chance at picking up these brown-tinted channels. Try 150-mile range outdoor antenna.
- Red: Channels are unlikely to be picked up by an antenna using standard measures
How to boost the antenna signal?
- Check http://www.tvfool.com/ by providing your zip code. Then you can find out where the broadcast towers are in your local. Aiming your antenna at TV tower can improve reception.
- Move the antenna to a new location or height frequently, if you are using an indoor one. Please wait a few minutes to see if the reception is getting better before the move.
- Rescan your channel monthly.
- Install a signal amplifier or booster between the antenna and receiver to increase the signal strength. You can check out our amplifiers through this link: https://www.homeantenna.com/product-category/tv-antennas/indoor-antenna/
Things to take care:
- These predictions are based on a terrain-sensitive propagation model resembling but not identical to the propagation model used when calculating service and interference contours for TV stations.
- Actual signal strength may vary based on a variety of factors, including(but not limited to), building construction, neighboring buildings and trees, weather, and specific reception hardware. Your signal strength may be significantly lower in extremely hilly areas.
- Please do monthly rescan in case of the signal change in your local area.
