Hello, this unit has Television System: ATSC, NTSC-M, 64 & 256 QAM with Program Coverage: VHF 2-13, UHF 14-69, DTV 2-69, CATV 1-135, CADTV 1-135. If hills, trees, buildings, or other geographic features are in between the broadcast towers and the antenna, the signals might not be able to reach your antenna. Elevating the antenna, either by placing it in a higher location or using a taller mast, will increase the signal reception.
The curvature of the earth limits most antennas to about 70 miles of range. Go to www.antennapoint.com and enter your address or zip code to ensure you are within the range of the broadcast towers in your area. If you are over 70 miles from the broadcast tower(s), reception is possible if the appropriate equipment is used and the right conditions are present.
The transmitter for certain channels could be located at a lower elevation on the broadcast tower, or even behind other broadcast towers.Lower elevation or obstruction by other towers can cause line-of-sight problems. UHF signals are dependent on line-of-sight for consistent reception. Change the location or elevation of the antenna to see if the problem persists. ^AC
