Question Channel 5 WOI tv

We just switched from satellite to antenna reception for our tv.

We can't get the ABC affiliate (WOI tv). Are there any other houses in Boone that can't get channel 5 from an antenna? Just wondering if it's even possible to receive the station here.

I have added an over the air antenna to dishnetwork to get the extra channels on local stations 5, 8, 11, 13 & 17. Cannot get any channel 5 stations and all of the others are sometimes good, sometimes bad on the over the air antenna. . My antenna is ground level but expect it would work much better in an attic or on a tall pole.

Good luck

Thanks cyfan2. I guess the next step will be to try to install a rooftop antenna. We were getting channel 8 (kcci) but that isn't coming in anymore over the rabbit ears antenna.

We have an antenna that extends 3 feet above our roofline. We can't get channel 5, ever since the switch from analog to digital.

We even have a electric boost on the signal & can turn our antenna to tune in the signals. We still can't get channel 5 in.

thanks for the input. I sure DID like channel 5. I'm disappointed that I can't get the signal.

What part of Boone are you in, mopar28m?
