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. Apple Watch (Series 5) users can make use of their compass with the optional in-app purchase of an embedded watch app. 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.
The compass does not work, which was the only reason I got this app. Don’t wast your money if your looking to use the compass.
If you’re installing an antenna, this app is priceless. You can clearly see where your local stations are located with a compass that makes it easy to point the antenna without needing a partner to check the reception or making a hundred trips up and down the ladder. It’s simple and packed with lots of useful information. Thanks for making this handy tool.
What a great app! At first, I was hesitant and it would not believe it would work until I start viewing on channels that I know I had issue on prior to the adjustment. Thank you so much for the app.
As an RV’er, TV Towers is how we find local channels everywhere we stay. We know exactly which direction to point our antenna for best reception.
Overall really happy with this app
Not current towers
Not very useful if you’re having problems with receiving antenna strength problems and a directional HD antenna.
I manage several conference rooms and we use OTA during catastrophic events. Instead of browsing website and feeding information I can open this app, finds my location automatically, choose a channel and shows you where to point.
Wow! You don’t run across many great apps like this very often. Fantastic job Mr. developer keep up the good work
Great app for finding TV towers, and lining up your antenna. Rob
