About this app

Aiming your TV antenna it's easy and free!

This application helps you discover digital TV towers (DTV) close to you and it helps you find the bearing from your location so that you can point you antenna to catch those stations. It works based on a list of antennas broadcasting digital TV over-the-air (OTA) in the United States, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Austria, Argentina, Brazil, Portugal, Colombia, Uruguay and Paraguay.

In the US it can also display the FCC calculated broadcast area over the map!

Specially useful when you camping in your camper van, rv, motorhome, so you can get the best TV reception wherever you are.

Be aware that compasses in phones are not very good and they are often wrong or get stucked. That cannot be corrected from a software application such as this one. Sometimes it's useful to “calibrate” the devices's compass by performing movements with the phone describing an "8".

For now this helper is just for United States, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Argentina Brazil, Colombia and Uruguay.

Works pretty well and I do have paid version. I live in Jacksonville Florida and the local station for ABC is showing only 3 miles from my location. Even with antenna pointed straight on this station - WJXX isn't broadcasting apparently as it won't tune in on any of my TVs. I can't find any info on the internet on them but also this app shows it is there but there is no signal from them. It would be nice if this app was accurate on the info provided, so a star is lost due to this issue.

This app saved the day for me. Was trying to watch one of the biggest college football games of the season when cable went out. I connected my HD antenna and kept pointing it to where I thought was the logical direction to get the station but it wouldn't work. I found this app and it indicated an alternative direction which was totally accurate. I'm a fan.

Extremely useful. If you don't know where your local TV transmission towers are, you will waste time orienting your antenna to get a nice signal. The finder is GREAT! I recommend an OUTSIDE antenna of some kind, set up as high as possible & as clear of obstruction as possible. With HDTV, of course, gone are the days of picking up an out of town "snowy" analog picture, passably watchable. Now it's just glitch after glitch, all or nothing. The finder can help avoid that.
