To install a TV antenna, choose the appropriate antenna, find a good mounting location, install the mount and antenna, run the necessary cable and aim the antenna. A guide for choosing the correct antenna and finding the pointing information is available at AntennaWeb.org

Enter your ZIP Code in the station-finding tool at AntennaWeb.org to find the closest broadcast signals and ascertain their direction. Consult the box label specifications to find a suitable antenna.
