Description

TV Towers USA is a map of digital TV broadcasting towers in the United States and its territories plus a select number of Canadian stations. The database includes over 2000 stations and over 1000 repeaters. My users include avid RVers who roam from region to region and need to locate available TV networks, and homeowners setting up a new antenna system. There is an alternate compass tab which shows the direction of stations within a 45 mile radius—given enough screen space—just look over your phone to see which way to point your antenna. Pinch to zoom into your locality, or hit the circular location button to concentrate on local stations. If more than 80 stations are in the area being viewed, a random assortment of 80 stations will be displayed. There is no "phoning home" with data, personal or not. If a data connection is available, the FCC servers will be asked for contour plot data when a tower is selected. This will show up as a blue overlay showing the calculated area over which the signal will drop off by at most 35 dBu. Basically, this is the area where an antenna not too near the ground has a chance to receive the signal; your luck will vary. Once downloaded, the data is stored for the next time you select the tower. Errors and omissions are to be expected especially for stations with low power licenses. Please e-mail the support address if you find a glaring omission or error; I'll need a call sign and a TV network.

    Amazing tool, works just as described. The ability to see the map with the transmitter locations, stations and all the information on what's being broadcasted makes it super easy to use. The compass feature further simplifies the process.

    Bought this app and loaded it on both my iPad and iPhone. The iPad worked great but on the iPhone, the compass part didn't work. Sent a support email and got a response in minutes. After a few back and forth emails, Glenn instructed me to change a setting on my iPhone and it works perfectly now. The best and most timely customer service I have ever received over the internet.
  • Great programmer and even better app!

    Do NOT go camping without this application!!! I bought this app some time ago. I had just purchased an RV and use this app while camping. This is one of the best apps I have ever purchased! It works extremely fast and the accuracy is amazing! The programmer who wrote the app is very concerned about those who purchase it and is great with updates and follow-up to questions! Do NOT go camping without this application!
  • Awesome for finding antennas while RV'ing

    We've been full time RV'ing for a year or so. Each time we stop I need to locate antennas. Before this app I needed to use 3 different tools to get the information I needed. This app does it all in one, and so far does it wonderfully. Thanks for designing this.
  • You can't watch TV from this app. Rip off.

    This would be a nice app if it pointed in the right direction! Most of the time its sense of direction differs from the compass app. How can that be? Once in a while it will point in the correct direction.
  • Huge Timesaver

    I've been on my roof many times with a transmission tower map and a compass trying to get my antenna to reach its full potential. This app made it so easy! My signal strength went up and I gained four more channels in the process. Save some time and download this app. It's totally worth the price.
  • Works great!

    Use this with my RV, reveals the stations available in an area and call letters ( so can check listings online). And so easy to point the antenna- I suggest this app to other rv campers as a top time saver!
