Might work, but...
In response to 141536: Would that work way down south?, posted by Rich E2 on Monday, 18 December 2017, at 10:45 p.m.
Rich - in my experience the distance you’re dealing with - somewhere around 85-100 miles, is too far for dependable reception. Not that it can’t work; most reception ranges are based on the TV transmitter being at high elevation but the receiver near ground level. Then you can probably count on about a 70 mile range with the appropriate antenna. Just for argument’s sake I measured from Miloli’i to central Maui...about 100 miles...and from Honaunau at around 85. That both you and the transmitter are elevated will work in your favor so it is possible that your line-of-sight will let it happen (line-of-sight being best possible situation for receiving TV). Best bet would be to get a yagi antenna with the most elements possible paired with an antenna-mounted amplifier.
