    I just installed a Mitz. Direct TV receiver. I was having problems with my off the air antenna and had a new one installed with a rooter to dial in the broadcast better.
    My question is, is there a web site or place I can find what direction to point the OTA antenna to receive the different local broadcasts?

    Thank you that was exactly what I was looking for. One other question since it is the UHF antenna that picks up HDTV should I then point the Rear end of the antenna towards the towers or the front ??

    Point the "open end" of the "V" toward the towers. Like you were "catching" the signal. (That's how I remember it.)
