Hello all, Hopefully I'm posting this in the right place! I recently "cut the cord" and bought a Winegard FreeVision antenna along with 50ft of RG6, which is mounted up in the attic and the wire is ran down to a 2way splitter. I even bought a Channel Master DVR, which should be arriving any day now. I'm fairly impressed with the antenna, but feel like it could be improved. It is rated for 35 miles, and I'm about 28-30 miles from Boston stations. I get pretty much all the stations you'd want, PBS, ABC, NBC, CBS. I don't get Fox or CW, though. I did manage to pick up a couple of Providence stations, amazingly. The weird thing is, weather affects the reception. On cloudy/rainy days, some of the channels cut out and are pixelated, or just go away all together. Sometimes, nothing happens and I just lose a channel randomly, only for it to reappear the next day. Also, I found positioning the antenna extremely difficult. One spot, you get nothing. A couple feet away and you pick up the channels. If I move the antenna slightly, even though its in the same spot, I lose everything. Its VERY touchy. According to my TV, the signal strength is about 50%. Anyways, here are my questions: -Would a preamplifier help? -Would an amplifier help? -Both? -Better/bigger antenna, rated for longer miles help? Or just stick with the Winegard? -Does the antenna need to be grounded? Thanks for any and all help.
