Free Antenna

I just set up my free antenna and am now able to get CBS on Channel 2 but am unable to get KCAL Channel 9, which is where the Dodger games are. Hubby not happy. Any suggestions?

KCBS is a UHF channel. And KCAL 9 is a VHF channel. So you'll need to adjust the two long poles (and make sure they are pulled all the way out) in order to get KCAL.

The analog shutoff happened 3 years ago and you're expecting to still pull in NTSC channels? If you want OTA, either buy a converter box or buy a new TV.

Move it outside, somewhere else, place it higher, etc. Or get a more powerful antenna if it is too weak. Check »tvfool.com for the details on where the transmitters are (most are on Mt. Wilson).

You can find some on Amazon.com for $35. Weren't they always around $50? I thought the free coupon was for $45?
