I just mounted a Wingard HD 7082 outdoor antenna on my roof and i currently get channels: 3, 5, 8, 19, 23, 25, 43, 53, 55, and 61. It comes out to 23 channels. I'm trying to get chanel 49 WEAO PBS Akron which is 168 degrees south. I can get the Ion tower just to the east but it's a more powerful tower. I don't know if I need to raise my mast which is already at 10'. Can anyone get channel 49 and how many channels can you get over the air?

I'm Cortland just north of Warren and Youngstown and with a cheap antenna you can 4 pbs stations, 21, 27, 33, and several other Ytown stations. If I had a good antenna I'd be able to pick up all the Cleveland stations too..........

Isn't 49 pretty much a carbon copy of 23?
or 25?
Whichever the CLE PBS one is.
I get that you want the most you can get but 2 PBS channels that have very similar programming??? Not sure I'd waste much time on trying to grab 49.

The main 49 and 25 channels have similar programming but their digital sub-channels are completely different. IMHO, 49 has much better digital programming including a channel that offers all international news broadcasts. And even though they are both PBS affiliates, there are some programs that one airs that the other station doesn't.

To answer the OP, I get all of those you listed. 23 & 49 can give me some troubles but I usually get them if I move the antenna. I also receive a few religious channels (channel 17, can't remember the others as they don't always show up)

Cool. Didn't know about the International News Channels, which I would love.
