Q:  Can you install an antenna at my apartment or condo?

A: Yes.  We need to mount the antenna high.  Take a look around and if you see DirecTV or Dish, that is usually approval for the installation of an antenna.   Contact you property Managers and get permission also.


Q:  How many channels can I expect to get?
