My scientific way is looking for a neighbor who has his antena up. I point mine in the same direction. I use a converter box which picks up many digital and analog stations. Sometimes twice the stations as antena alone. Do not know why this works but it does.

I've done the same thing every time we camp. Recently I've installed the Winegard SensarPro TV Signal Meter and it works great. Purchased it from Campingworld and it was pretty easy to install in place of the regular tv booster outlet. I simply turn it on(tv off) and signal strength numbers are shown on the meter. You just turn the antenna to the strongest numbers, then turn on your television and do a new channel scan. I'm impressed how good it works. It has an adjustable gain control that helps too. Camping keeps getting better and better!

I did find that Antennapoint.com has more stations listed for my home address that antennaweb.org, so both can be used and compared.

Not sure I will mount the protractor, but I will get one and play with it and a compass.
They break easy when drilling the handle hole and cutting out the center bar. I broke 2 before I got it right.

That looks VERY interesting and not that expensive.

By all means give us a report here in the thread to educate us on this device!!

I've used TV Fool for finding towers in the past, works in Canada as well.

If you have an Android phone TV antenna helper is a good app. It uses your GPS location to find towers/signals near you and also has compass feature.
