And a very good, accurate and precision rotor by the sound of things.

BTW: do trees have any detrimental effect on the OTA signals?? Just curious.

Yes they do, not much but they absorb the signal. And it is worse when they are wet just after the rain. And it depends on the type of tree.

The rule of thumb is that an outdoor antenna will pull in twice the signal of an indoor. And, obviously, the higher, the better.

BTW, CFTO complicated things when they switched to using channel 9, post-analog. All the other major networks are in the UHF band and most people thought all digital transmissions would be UHF-only. Not so--9 is VHF. For you folks further away, like Vaughn, you need to find an antenna that is good for both UHF and VHF. The one I have is no longer available and I'll not up on the current offerings.
