Mark Mandell - Gone Round In New Jersey
Used to live about half way between NYC and Philly.

We used a powered rotating directional antenna. NE to such ° for NYC and then about a 180° from that to get the Philadelphia stations. Controller and compass dial on top of the TV cabinet. Get some higher winds and you could just forget trying to watch anything. It did have a breakaway gear for very high winds that would de-couple it from the motor and let it spin in the wind like a weather vane. Had to get up on the roof several times to reset the thing.

Ain't technology wonderful?
