Yeah, thanks... I am using Chrome. Trouble is, I have so many bookmarks, even with folders galore, finding things when you want them isn't easy

What seems to work best for me is to print the post to a PDF and then store it in a folder marked RV Mods or some such.

What kind of distance can you be from a tower and still get signal with your Yagi? I am a little over 100 miles from the towers I am able to watch, if I use the booster. PS I do have an outdoor antenna.

I am getting over 100 miles with no booster... IF my sat TV does not work better this coming winter (snowbird) I will also add a rotor to the yagi and get the LA stations as well as the Yuma ones...

A lot depends on the terrain between you and the station tower. If there's a mountain in the way, all bets are off.

I do have mountains in the way. My camp is in a narrow valley. The valley runs mostly east and west. The stations I am picking up are at 85 degrees from my camp, so that is why I can pull them in. There are transmission towers in 2 other areas (south and south west) that are much closer to my camp, but I can not get any signal from them. I have a huge mast antenna and I am lucky if I can pick up one station at a time, and that is with a signal booster. My new little jack antenna works much better. I am getting 10 channels. The most I was able to get with the mast antenna or the Winegard antenna with the Wingman attached was 7 channels and they weren't coming in great.

Cable tv

Trying (for the first time) to get cable tv to work. I have a class c - I plugged the coax into the site and into my connection by the power cord. When I go through all the sources on the tv I get ... Nada. Any ideas what I'm missing?

Check the switch Plate where you connected the TV to If the switch is in the wrong position you will not get cable. One position is for your roof top antenna. The other position is for cable. There is also a LED light if its on move the switch
