Local channels are hard to receive now, so being in broadcasting I wanted to offer some tips on how to receive your local channels using an inside and outside antenna.
If you live in the Casper, Mills, Evansville or the Midwest or Edgerton areas you can point your outside antenna to the south to receive most or all of the TV stations from Casper Mountain in this market area. If you are trying to use an indoor antenna in these communities remember to find a window that faces south to put your antenna close to for good TV reception.
The location for most of the TV stations in the Fremont County area come from either the northeast or southwest depending on your location. For an outside antenna I would recommend a VHF/UHF directional antenna since these are the most sensitive type of antenna for TV reception. As for indoor TV antennas I don't like them but there are some tips in this letter if you need to use one.
I have friends who live on Pheasant Run Drive in the Sinks Canyon area and they have an outside antenna mounted in their attic pointed to the north to northeast and are able to receive FOX, ABC, CBS, PBS, and NBC. The higher the antenna, the better the result for your TV reception.
If you live in the Lander city limits and areas south you should be able to pick up CBS, ABC, FOX, PBS Lander translator, and possibly NBC if you point an outside antenna to the northeast. If you are using an indoor antenna try putting it close to a window that faces north or northeast and you should be able to pick up most of these stations. If you still need a good signal for receiving PBS you can also point your antenna south toward Limestone Mountain.
If you live north of Lander in Fort Washakie, Riverton, Hudson, Ethete, Kinnear, Pavillion or Shoshoni you will have to point your antenna either north or south because to receive FOX, ABC, and possibly NBC you would need to point an outside antenna north to northeast, and pointing it south to southwest you would receive CBS and PBS. The same applies for an indoor antenna to find a north or northeast facing window for FOX, ABC, and maybe NBC and a south or southwest facing window for CBS and PBS.
