Aiming your TV antenna it's easy and free!
This application helps you discover digital TV towers (DTV) close to you 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 and Uruguay.
In the US it can also display the FCC calculated broadcast area over the map!
Specially useful when you camping in your camper van, rv, motorhome, so you can 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 stucked. 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.
USA stations were retrieved from FCC's CDBS database. Brazilian stations were retrieved from Anatel. Argentina ones were retrieved from TDA home page. UK Freeview transmitter locations were retrieved from http://www.ukfree.tv. Canadian stations were retrieved from Industry Canada. Australian station info was downloaded from http://data.gov.au/dataset/licensed-broadcasting-transmitter-data. Transmitters for Ireland (Saorview) come from https://www.saorview.ie/
