I hope this is the right category for this. I’m hoping to get some advice from the community.
I’ve recently moved across the country to the Greater LA area. Specifically, area code 90731 and I’m having some trouble picking up the Big 5, as I call them, with my indoor antenna.
I have a Tablo Dual OTA DVR connected to a Mohu Leaf 50 amplified antenna. The antenna is mounted on a wall, near the ceiling and a window, with the flat side facing North. According to a scan of the area code on antennaweb.com the Big 5 are all about 35ish miles away at either 8 or 9 degrees. Some of the stations come in strong and clear. For example CBS (36 miles at 8 degrees), NBC and CW (36 miles at 9 degrees) I get perfectly. But ABC (36 miles at 9 degrees) barely comes in and Fox (36 miles at 9 degrees) doesn’t come in at all.
I’m no expert, obviously, but it seems to me that all of the stations ought to come in clearly. Hence, asking for advice. What does the community think?
