answer 6
yes. You would need a splitter. Walmart sells a 4 or 5 way splitter for about $6 and also sells a 2 way splitter. I've read that you may need an amplifier if you split it to several TVs, or if your cable run is long. I used a 50 foot coax and did not split it. My signal strength was so good I think I could easily spit it to two TVs without a need for an amp. You can buy an amp for about $20 at Walmart, but it runs on 110 power. That is another good reason to put it in the attic as it is usually easier to run power in the attic than it is outside on the roof. If you have a light bulb in the attic, Lowe's sells a screw in adaptor that gives you a plug in at the light bulb fixture.

Yes, where your cable comes into the house you probably have a splitter, you should be able to attach the antenna there. We run four TVs with a one to three way splitter where the antenna comes into the house and use an additional one to two splitter within the house between two adjoining rooms.

answer 5
Since the antenna is described as UHF/VHF, it is capable of receiving stations broadcasting in either frequency. Channels 2-6 are said to be in 'low VHF' while channels from 8-13 are in 'high VHF'. Channels 14-69 are all in the UHF spectrum. Some channels that have previously broadcast in the VHF spectrum prior to the digital rollout have actually changed to the UHF frequencies and taken advantage of a higher power output.
In the Houston, TX area, for example, there are only 3 stations that continue to broadcast in VHF: 8, 11, & 13. These stations are also the most troublesome to receive for viewers more than 30 miles away because they all transmit at a low power output of 17-22kW compared to 233kW-1000kW for UHF stations. Channel 2, however, actually broadcasts at 35 and has 1,000kW of power output.

I put mine in my attic since I live in a hurricane area. It works very well. I dont know if it would have worked any better outside. But I do know I have no breaking up or digitizing of the picture going on.

I have a wood and shingle roof. I would not put it in the attic if I had a metal roof.

TV signals do not pass thru metal well. Unless you have alunimum siding on wour house, it should work about as well as it would outside.

Question

I have an abandoned DirectTV dish, can I use the cable from it?

It looks like a normal coax cable. The dish is mounted on a heavy duty tripod bracket on the roof and I want to hang my antenna from it after discarding the dish parts. Can I just use the same cable they left behind? It already runs to a splitter and then to my TVs.

the dish cables are good for dtv, however if they are old the connectors should have a good water tight cover. the worst problem with cable is water inside the jacket. ruins the impeadance. check with dtv.gov and check out signal levels. you may need an amp to give the split tvs enough signal. P.S. don't use an amp if it is not necessary, it may add noise to the signal.

the widest end is the back of the antenna, the front end has two elements that fold out about to form a "V" about 3 feet behind the tip. Best advice is to adjust antenna to get best overall signal and and tighten to mast in that position.

I think this is going to depend more on the strength of the tv stations broadcasting.

This antenna picks up the same channels I could get with my cheaper 30 mile small plastic phillips antenna.
This larger one does hold the signal more consistent.

I get some channels (PBS) that are 60 miles away with almost any antenna. And there are some channels much closer I cannot get consistently.

This is a full spectrum antenna. I am receiving channels from 4.1 to 62.2 (which is what is offered in my area). This antenna works well for both UHF and VHF.

Just go to your local hardware store and buy a co-ax "splitter" (about 6-10 bucks) It's easy and cheap. I have a 3-way splitter & run 3 TVs on my antenna.

you would need a cable splitter and more coax cable. Walmart sells both and it is not expensive. You may also need an amplifier if you added more than 2 TV's and if your cable run lengths were long distances.
