Well, I'm alive. I know, you're all relieved :-) I got up near the top of
the antenna, and realized I don't like heights. So I thought of a different
approach. I sat on the upper roof and using a very long bamboo stick, I
pushed the antenna into position. Someone helped me by moving the rotor
control in the correct direction. So the antenna is pointed correctly,
however, I just get FOX in better now and the Church channels. I think that
the amp I'm using isn't very good. It's several years old and a Radio Shack
amp with no real measure of how much gain it's giving. Any thoughts on a
new amp? Thanks!
