I own a Sony Bravia HDTV in my living room and a Hauppauge Win-TV HVR 950Q for my computer. I plan on replacing my my cable TV subscription with an antenna capable of receiving local digital TV broadcasts.
Using antennaweb.com I need a yellow antenna type, for both low and high VHF (2.1 & 7.1) and UHF (5.1 - 66.1), the largest distance to a transmission tower is 7.6 miles, and the greatest difference in compass heading is 9°.
The Winegard antenna selector recommended the SS-3000, however, being an interior antenna, there is no suitable location near a window, away from metal bookcase, or with an unobstructed line of sight to the towers. Additionally I don't want this antenna in my living room!
I would like to mount the antenna on theflat roof of my home (approx. 37 feet high) where it will have a clear unobstructed view of the transmission towers. In that location I estimate 68 lineal feet of exterior cable, and an additional 62 feet of interior cable before reaching the distribution panel (130 lineal feet total). From there I plan on splitting the signal and feeding two television sets, one at 30 lineal feet, and the other at 37 lineal feet.
Which antenna, coaxial cable, splitter, etc. do you recommend for this installation?
