WCCB Charlotte’s Digital Television Reception Tips

To see what Digital Television you can receive for FREE! at your location, antenna aiming direction and additional information, enter your address at one of these websites:

www.rabbitears.info/search.php gives basic parameters of all available stations.

www.tvfool.com gives complete technical parameters of all available stations.

www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx will help you to choose the proper antenna.

For best reception of all stations, we recommend an attic or outdoor rooftop antenna. Indoor antennas generally do not provide reliable reception for digital television and can be problematic due to trees, electrical interference, traffic, and other RF sources.

Detailed TV antenna information can be found at the following websites:
