There is a cool app available for your Android phone;
Search for: TV Antenna Helper Free on Google play. It will scan for signals either where you are or any location you put in. Displays the signals on a map or a list and their strengths. I use it all the time traveling works great.
Tells you exactly where the towers are and which stations are broadcasting from them.

You are a lucky guy that gets to communicate with a person from the Stone Age who still has and loves his Flip phone!

I grew up in the age when you went outside the house with a pipe wrench to turn the antenna pole. Somebody inside would say no, a little more, no go back, until the station came in clear enough to see. You'd be happy with those 2 stations!

I'll be right back. I have a little snow on the screen, I can hop in the 1951 Studebaker Champion and go down to Woolworth's and check a few tubes in the self tester. I think that will do it. Then I'll fiddle with the rabbit ears and put a little aluminum foil on them, that should do it...
Cool, Superman is on....

My antenna is the standard round black one that came on it. There is another coax plug on the rear cabinet. I'm going to try that one and see if it works any different.
