Will a TV antenna work at your house?
There may be a way to ﬁnd out without purchasing and installing an antenna ﬁrst.
Start by googling "TV signal locator". Various websites will pop up. Some are trying to sell you an antenna. Others ask for you zip code in order to tell you which channels you'll receive with an antenna. The problem with zips code is, they can cover to large areas. For example: Our zip code, 85396, covers north, west, and south of the White Tanks. People living south of the White Tanks may receive many channels that those of us that live north of the White Tanks cannot.
I like the website: DTV Reception Maps | Federal Communications Commission (FCC.Gov) . You can enter you street address and city, or just click "Go to my location". It will list the channels you can get at your house.
Unfortunately my home is on 270th & Potter Drive. I can only get 3 "weak" stations, whereas Surprise can get 15 "strong" channels. Check your location for speciﬁcs.
Thank you Don St.John, for your expertise.
