    For a TV antenna to work at 150 miles, the TV station transmitters would need to be at 6000 feet, and so would you, plus nothing in the way, like other mountains.



    This is the antenna I have setup about 5 feet above my house and it reaches signals along way away.It says rated for 150 miles and its true.

    Here you all can figure it out, at an antenna height of 25 feet the transmitter at 150 miles would need to be at 13,800 feet.

    Explains a few of my early morning ota/SV scanning mysteries. Was beginning to believe I had a U-110 with a demon in it.

    I live on one side of a mountain range and get nothing from other side so no Tropospheric scatter here just tv stations.

    I had a modified 6 meter beam that I used to pick up BBC 1 when 6 meter skip was hot, I had an old PAL TV set from a long time ago, worked good when the tropo's were right.

    Had a quad 2 meter setup also, could work Europe over the poles when it was right.
