    I am looking at the Winegard ss2000 to mount next to my Triple LNB D* dish to pick up the following channels...


    DTV Antenna
    Type Call Sign Channel Network City State Live
    Date Compass
    Orientation Miles
    From Frequency
    Assignment
    * red - uhf WTOK-DT 11.1 ABC MERIDIAN MS 181° 8.1 49
    * red - uhf WMAW-DT 44.1 PBS Meridian MS 228° 31.7 44
    * blue - uhf WGBC-DT 31.1 NBC MERIDIAN MS 181° 8.1 31
    * blue - uhf WMDN-DT 26.1 CBS MERIDIAN MS 181° 8.1 26

    the PBS is not really of concern but the local networks are..as u can see they are all located on the same hill(same distance and direction from me) I do have tall trees directly around my house so there is no direct line of sight to the towers. I can pick up the abc HD broadcast now with a set top antenna but it does come and go. Also I plan on rewiring things so I have the 4 sat RG6 lines as well as the off air antenna RG6 line bundles together and run down to my equipment closet where i am will have a 5x8 multiswitch. Should I expect any interference probs or signal loss with having the line from the antenna running along side the 4 sat lines and thru the attic to the equip closet? If so would running the antenna line in a different route but still ending up at the same multiswith solve any interference probs? Thanks

    If i were you i would make sure you pick up PBS it by far is the best looking HD feed in mobile area, they have good shows with no commercials.
