FOX 7 Signal

  • First, make sure the antenna you are using is both UHF and VHF capable. Most stations now broadcast on UHF. However, FOX 7 is still a VHF station, so you need to make sure your antenna is designed to deliver the VHF signal. This is one of the most common issues.

  • The FOX 7 transmission tower is located northwest of downtown Austin. If your TV utilizes a “directional antenna,” it should be pointed in this direction for best results.

  • Try relocating your indoor antenna to different locations around the room where you’re viewing television. Moving the antenna away from large metal objects and/or closer to a window might give you enough signal gain to overcome the “cliff effect” that is common now with digital broadcasts.

  • Adding a small in-line amplifier can often help with signal problems. These units are inexpensive and easy to install.  Click here to see an example. Using this type of amplifier is particularly important if you are feeding multiple television sets from a single antenna. Signal splitters significantly reduce the amount of signal available to each set.

If you continue to experience problems with reliable reception, we suggest moving up to an attic-mounted or outdoor antenna. Here at the station, we have had very good luck with the Winegard GS-2200 antenna. Click here to see an example.

When installing an outdoor antenna, it should be installed away from trees or other dense foliage, and as high as possible for best results. An important note: NEVER install an antenna near an incoming power line, or where it might contact a power cable, should it fall.
