I have been tooling around with this channel master 4-bay uhf, and am able to get mid and upper uhf, but am having trouble with my nbc station(lowvhf). Is there any way to tweak this antenna to get my signal better for that stubborn nbc station? I really don't want to have to get another vhf standalone if I don't have to. I am running 100' of rg6 quad line at 25 feet (tower). All of my stations are in the same directional cone, so I can keep my antenna stationary. Thanks for any help here. Later surfdude:confused:

I'm afraid your gonna be out of luck. I assume the antenna you have is a CM4228. That is only good for VHF-HI 7-13 and UHF 14-69. Low is VHF is 2-6. So your either gonna have to add an antenna for the Low VHF range or scrap the CM4228 all together and get a full range VHF/UHF combo. Sorry.

Not that I know of.The 4bay can only get uhf signals.The 4228 can get vhf hi signals thats the 8bay antenna.Your best bet would be to get a good vhf antenna to go with the 4bay.

Low VHF signals require a much larger antenna than what UHF needs. Hight VHF is closer to the lower UHF frequencies, sometimes you get lucky using a UHF for the hi banders, but low band is totally out of the question.

Are you sure that low band VHF is staying on VHF after the Feb '09 analog shutoff? The low band is interference prone. Both of my low band VHF's are leaving for higher channels as DT's. BTW: Don't let the "virtural channel numbers" fool you. My ch 5 is actually DT on 15. They are not going back to 5 after the transition, but will still be known as "5" due to many years of branding.
