  1. I’m less than 20 miles from the tv station, but had to use an attic antenna to get NBC. I moved a few miles closer to the station, and now cannot get it at all. Any ideas?

    • Are there any major obstructions; like trees or buildings in the way? It could be the type of antenna you have. Do you have a pre-amp attached to the antenna. You could try removing it and see if it helps. I have also seen with my televisions that not all tuners are build the same. One of my televisions will receive FOX better then the other. So it could be your tuner. If you have another TV with a different tuner, try plugging that one in and see if it works. Hope this helps and good luck.
