CUT THE CABLE! 

June 17, 2014

A week or so ago I cut the cable with Time Warner, except for the internet modem, of course.  I had an existing 40-ft tower at my house.  Chester Electronic Supply recommended this setup, twin Winegard HD-8800 UHF Antennae on a new 10-ft mast, one pointed 355 degrees north and one pointed 167 degrees south.  Then Rich came over with his boom truck and hoisted it up.

END RESULT = 90 HD digital channels!
TOTAL COST = $326

NOTE:  Some of the channels are duplicate, ABC, NBC and CBS, one each from Chicago and Milwaukee, which are USUALLY the same except for local news and sporting events.  Also, most TV stations have sub-channels like 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, etc.

35-year old Channel Master antenna with rotor.
It still worked, sort of.  It made some very unusual sounds during rotation!
The channels I got were great, but I only picked up 8 or 10 out of Milwaukee and 2 out of Chicago.

 

 

 

The new system picks up 90 HD digital channels with no rotor!
