Terrain Issues

Keep in mind that terrain and other obstructions can block your signals.  Even if your neighbor's home is positioned at just a slightly higher elevation than yours it can have an impact.  Try moving your antenna to a higher position on the wall or in a window.   The higher the better.  When the signals are transmitted they travel in a straight line.  These signals do not go over or around obstructions so when they come into contact with something like a hill, mountain or building the signal is weakened and often blocked.  The higher the antenna placement of the antenna the better the chances of getting up and over any potential obstructions.


Building Material/Tower Direction  Issues

If the signals are transmitting to the south side of your location but you only have a north facing window you may not get as many signals as you would with a southern window placement.  The signals are also weakened because they have to travel through the building materials and often will not be obtainable.  In some homes customers get many channels in one side of the home and little to no channels on the other side.  When possible placing the antenna in a window that is facing the direction of the towers is ideal.  



Apartment/Condos

Many apartment or condo dwellers find that the higher the unit the better the reception.  This is all dependant on the signal strength in the area and the location of the unit in relation to the transmitting tower.  If the signals are transmitting to the south side of your location but you only have a north facing window you may not get as many signals as you would with a southern window placement.  The signals are also weakened because they have to travel through the building materials and often will not be obtainable.  In some apartment/condos customers get many channels in one side of the unit and little to no channels on the other side.  When possible placing the antenna in a window that is facing the direction of the towers for the best reception chances.
