Greetings from Georgia.
Denny and Rhonda,
I received my new antenna and pre-amp (HD stacker and Winegard AP-8780) on 16 June 2011. I installed everything the next day. I've waited this long to contact you so I could give you an honest opinion as to how my new stuff works vs. my old stuff (we've been getting ""free TV"" for 10 years) We live out in the country and IAW the ""gov"" web site, the available TV stations are in Augusta, GA. and Greenville, SC, both areas are 50-70 miles from us. Usually, when the wind blows or a storm is within 30 miles of us, our TV reception goes somewhere................other than to our TV. I've had my new stuff installed about 2 weeks now, been through 5 severe thunderstorms with strong lightning, 55 mph winds and I still had great TV reception on most channels! All I can say is, ""Damn, what a great antenna and pre-amp."" Also, I want to tell ya'll that your web site is great! I'm 65 yrs old and my son calls me a ""tec-no dinosaur"" but I had no problems getting around your web site and understanding just what I needed, and thanks to you my understanding of free TV airwaves and how everything works is up to date. One calm and clear night last week, I turned my antenna towards Atlanta (120 miles away) and picked up 3 of their channels. Of course they weren't there the next morning. Right now I have 27 channels, ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, 6 PBS stations from GA, SC and NC. I feel like I got ""Free Satellite!"" TV. My 90 year old Mother-in-law lives with us and she's happy........she can watch her ""soaps"" with NO interference while she ""naps""!
Ya'll have a great day and thanks again!
