Indoor Anntenna on fish house

Hey guys,
I recently bought an indoor digital antenna for my fish house, and it doesn't seem to be working, hoping someone would have some advice.

I have only tried it twice, one on a Mankato area lake and once on Mille Lacs. When I hook it up to the TV and hit the channel list there are several channels that are highlighted, however when I select one of these channels the tv says "no signal".

I am running the Tv on the "TV" input, I have tried moving the antenna around to all sides of the house, and tried putting it in the windows, and nothing seems to work. The antenna does have an amplifier on it too. Anyone have any suggestions?

**FYI I am not very techy, so you'll have to speak to me in little kid terms...

Thanks for any help.

You need to have line of site. It is odd that it says it finds the channels but then you get no signal.

I have found that low signal means no pic.

Have checked with others around you to see if they have reception?

This site has range maps.

From my experience if the signal is weak it will not work. especially with a cheap antenna. If you spring for the good one, about $80 you have a better chance. No channels on Mille lacs have a strong signal.

I have also tried several versions on Mille Lacs and none worked.

imo your best bet is to get a roaddish if you want tv, else plan for bringing movies or download them onto your phone and stream that way as i only had luck with an amplified a few yrs back on millacs but werent the good channels

We have downloaded movies to a device then connected that to a tv to have entertainment. The streaming services, well most allow that like Netflix, Amazon etc.

Or like mentioned dvds.
