About this app

Aiming your TV antenna is easy and free!

This application helps you discover digital TV towers (DTV) near your location 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.

For users in the US, it can also display the FCC calculated broadcast area over the map!

This app is especially useful for campers and travelers using camper vans, RVs, or motorhomes, ensuring you 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 stuck. 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.

I like this app. It finds tv broadcasting antennae accurately and I like the way the arrow points to show you where the antennae is for each channel. We go "camping" once a month for about a week and this app really comes in handy if we want to watch tv in our camper. Of course, the signal must be strong enough so I wish the app showed signal strength. I paid (currently $3.99) for the app because I want to use it in multiple locations and apparently you only get one location without charge.

Excellent, easy to understand. I thought I was just going to experiment with moving the antenna a few degrees at a time, then rescan for channels with the TV. I'm pretty well spoiled to Netflix and Amazon streaming, but there are times I'd like to see regular broadcast TV. I am located in a very rural area with lots of tall trees, but the house had a tall antenna tower with electric rotor system when we purchased. What was going to take all day or longer will now be possible in an hour! Having the degrees and the channel numbers to plug in is awesome!
