Will a metal roof affect a TV antenna. What if I put the antenna in the attic? Heres the deal, I would like to put a TV in the garage to get locals. I have the converter box and all. I would prefer to hide the antenna in the attic though.
I had one home with an antenna in the attic and it worked quite well. Many years later I installed a freebie antenna just below the roof in a metal building and it didn't provide signal as well as rabbit ears.
Yes you do,, as my friends have to use one of those boxes and all they have is a Good Roof antenna and a ROTOR which if in the attic you can't do that, as you may also need a rotor to get all the channels, because the days of getting the antenna halfway and get all channels are over with. that is if the stations you are trying to get are in different directions like they are here. Then a Antenna rotor is a necessity, and recommended.
