Interpreting the TV Station Locator for Antenna Tool Results

Station Finder - HDTV Channel MapThe TV Station Locator will present a list of channels in a color-coded channels available in your area.

The colors range from Green – Strong, Yellow – Moderate, Orange – Weak, and Red – No Signal. A good quality indoor antenna should allow you to pick up channels in the Green to Yellow spectrum.

For channels that are in the Orange or Weak spectrum, I recommend a high quality outdoor antenna. For a complete listing of top quality antennas, check out my article on the Best Outdoor HDTV Antennas (Update for 2019!)
