Identify TV station's antenna location. The initial thing which needs to be performed is to call up the regional television station. Ask the personnel of the station regarding the broadcast antennas' specific location.
The second step which you have to do now is to reposition your external aerial. In case you'd your aerial installed on the roof top, you have to release the U-bolts which are holding the aerials. Then, reposition the aerial and point it to the path where the television station's broadcast mast is found. Make sure you have an assistant to assist you monitor the television each time you create any modifications to the antenna. Avoid screaming to each other to communicate, but rather, utilize a phone. Each time you create a change to the placement of the exterior antenna, ask your assistant to rescan for stations. And then, when you have finally acquired the stations you want, tighten up the U-bolts to keep the aerial secured in position.
Create adjustments to the indoor antennas. You may now start working on readjusting your indoor antennas until you acquire the perfect TV reception. Initially you must ensure to lift the antennas as high up to the ceiling as possible. You may then slowly adjust the directions of the aerial ears until you're happy with the reception from the TV. It is necessary that while you make any modifications, you also continue to monitor your TV set so you can immediately identify the precise change that offered the perfect TV reception.
Transfer the TV set close to the window. If pulling and repositioning the antenna ears didn't work, you could try carrying your TV set and antennas near the window. Usually this will work as signals are strongest where there are no physical interferences. Make sure that the co-axial wires aren't kinked to below 3 inches in radius.
You may also try to find the best reception from inside the room by moving the aerial around the room. Do this while carefully monitoring the reception of stations from the TV set. As soon as you have determined which specific spot in the room supplies the best reception, move your television set to that space.
An elevated spot inside the house also provides a better TV reception from, say, the basement or first floor. Therefore, in case your television is not getting good reception from the ground it is presently positioned, transfer the TV set to an elevated floor.
