I currently live in Baltimore and am about 5 to 8 miles from the local broadcast stations in my city. I also live about 35 miles from the majority of the broadcast stations coming out of Washington D.C. Is there an antenna set up that I could use in order to pick up both sets of stations?
Both Baltimore and DC have a mix of UHF and VHF stations (Baltimore, Channels 2 - 54, DC Channels, 4 to 66. If the mileage difference wasn't enough of a hassle, the Baltimore stations have headings mostly at 338 degrees, while the DC stations have headings all towards the southeast at approximately 240 degrees.
I was looking at the MS-2000 which would allow me to pick up signals from both directions, but I know that I should avoid amplifying a signal for stations under 10 miles. I will also be running the line from the antenna to my TV about 70 feet from the antenna to the TV. Would the MS-2000 make an acceptable choice for this situation (mounted on a 3rd story deck rail with no immediate obstructions, and relatively clear LOS) in order to maximize the number of stations I can pick up? Are there other suggestions?
