    OK I am in rural Ohio, about 35-50 miles from WV stations. My flat window antenna gets most channels but a few do not come in because I assume I need an outdoor antenna.


    Lots of trees between us but I am at an elevation of 690 feet





    I will be using 3 televisions and my antenna will be 85-95 feet from the crawlspace. I will need a splitter and not sure how to do that or that I can with certain antennas

    I live just south of Cincinnati in Northern Kentucky. I built a "dirt-cheap" Gray-Hovermann antenna. A miser's DIY special. Dayton, OH is 50+ miles north and I now get all of their channels. Even the low power ones are totally watchable now. 63 channels currently, yes some doubles but they often play different shows so it's nice. There are tons of videos for diy antennas but this is the one I used.

    Yes it is cheap cheap cheap, almost no $, but it works GOOD. I highly recommend to anyone reading.
    P.S.- Since where I live there is no channel overlap so I didn't actually make the reflector and it still works like a champ.
