Is there such thing as a 990 mile antenna?
No antenna on the planet can get in channels from 990 miles unless you install it on the space station and have powerful amplifiers. The curvature of the earth itself drops several feet for every few miles.
Should my antenna be vertical or horizontal?
Adjust the antenna direction on both the horizontal and also slightly in the vertical plane to get the best signal. Normally the antenna will perform best when it is horizontal, but occasionally a small adjustment in the horizontal plane may give some benefit.
What is the most powerful outdoor antenna?
BEST OVERALL: Antennas Direct Clearstream 4V TV Antenna C4-V-CJM.
Does the angle of an antenna matter?
Are you talking about the orientation of the receiver antenna? You have to be more specific. Yes, each antenna (even a omni directional one) has a so called radiation pattern and thus the direction of radiation matters.
What is the best antenna position?
Antennas should all be oriented in the same direction, pointing vertically out of the sensor. If the sensor is mounted flat on it’s back on a horizontal surface, you should bend the antenna as close to the sensor housing as possible giving you the most amount of antenna pointing vertical.
What antenna has the longest range?

How do I align my digital antenna?
You should look to point the aerial roughly in the right direction. Rotate one way so that you see the signal drop off considerably. Then rotate back the other way so that you see it peak, when you see it peak continue rotating the same direction until you see it drop off again.
Does orientation of antenna matter?
Yes, each antenna (even a omni directional one) has a so called radiation pattern and thus the direction of radiation matters.

Should antenna be level?
The textbook answer is that you should always keep the antenna level. That’s what I’ve been taught and what you find in every tutorial. This has something to do with the horizontal polarization of the signal being sent out.
Do directional antennas need line of sight?
No. Line of sight (LOS) is always desirable but not a critical requirement to establishing good performance. Using a fixed outdoor Poynting antenna improves performance and reliability for 3G/4G LTE even though line of site is not available.
What is the best antenna for rural areas?
Which end of antenna do I point?
The end of the antenna with the short elements is the front of the antenna. You point that end towards the TV transmitter.
