no signal using digital antenna


In some areas, it can depend on the antenna used. In areas close to the stations, you should pick up fine with just about any antenna. If you're out in the country or even thirty to forty-five minutes away from the station, you will probably need an outdoor antenna. Even with this in mind, in some areas, the antenna may need to be higher or lower than your neighbors antenna. As an example, I lived in an area where, with analog television, my outdoor antenna was on a twenty foot pole. When I switched to digital, I had to lower my antenna about five feet. A person, one city block behind me, had mimiced what I had done before and after the switch. Because of the job I had at the time, he showed up at my work and inquiried about the reason he wasn't getting anything. After telling him that I had to play with the height of mine, and that he might need to take his higher, he went to try it. Two days later, he came back saying that he was getting great reception, but he had to go the full extent of his thirty foot pole. That's just within a city block, but I've even talked with people in the country where some have been lucky enough to be able to use an indoor antenna and their neighbors had an outdoor one about twenty to thirty foot high. Some have even needed to go to a good fifty feet.

i need a good anntenna


Depends on how far away you are from the station. You may just need to elevate the one you have now. Just get a roof mount pole and mount the antenna on that. Radio Shack sells outdoor antennas especially for digital signals.

how do i increase wi-fi signal strength


There are only a few ways to increase signal strength ..move closer to the source (the router) , get a bigger antenna or boost the signal...you can boost the signal with foil in the shape of a parabola around the router antenna or make one out of a vegatable strainer that will plug into the laptop(this one works best )especially for picking up your neighbors WIFI

I bought a digital converter and a terk fdtv2a antenna. I placed the antenna on my window and I am only able to receive 2 stations, one informerical and one in spanish. Does this antenna just not work for me?


You live too far away from the stations transmitters. In this case,you need an outdoor ant. to do the job.(roof top).I live in Orlando area and I get 35+ channels.

Can't get anything over antenna


Did you use an inside or outdoor antenna? An outdoor antenna rotated in the correct direction will give you the best chance of getting any signal. Look at antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the channels in your area, the direction in which the antenna must be pointed and the type of antenna you will need to get them. Antennaweb.org is very conservative in the channel listings even with the assumption of an external antenna. Do you have hills, trees or tall buildings between you and the various transmitters? That will block your signal strength - remember digital TV is an all-or-nothing signal.

I hope this helps.

(antennaweb indicates that my location will only get 2 channels from a transmitter 10 miles away. With a properly oriented outdoor antenna and an splitter/amplifier, I actually get those + 3 from 30 miles away on several TVs without signal loss..)
