The Station Finder is my name for the FCC tool that tells you which TV stations you can potentially get in your area. The channels you actually get will depend on your exact location, type of antenna, height of your antenna, and other factors.
Press the button below and enter your zip code. Wait a few seconds, and it will show you how many potential free TV channels are available in your area.
You should be able to get most of the green and yellow channels using a good indoor antenna. Click on the station’s call letters to see what direction the signal is coming from on the map to help you orient your antenna.
THE RESULTS OF THE STATION FINDER ARE BASED ON THE FCC DATABASE AND DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO RECEIVE ALL OF THE CHANNELS LISTED.

In general, you should be able to receive most of the green channels using a good antenna and some experimentation.
