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.



  • I really like this app works great for aiming off air antennas

    By jkinstall
    Love it works great If you installing a off sit antenna this is a great app for aiming you antenna I’m a professional installer and use it every day Thanks
  • Fantastic app. Has no comparisons.

    By bradleydiggs
    This is a fantastic app if you need to point a TV antenna (or FM or AM with the developers other apps). Or see the distance between you and a specific station’s transmitter site. The interface is clean and organized, it looks and operates like a million bucks. Also the developer once responded to an email where I had mentioned a tower had moved, and within about a day he found some new way to update his databases to reflect it. Phenomenal. Buy the bundle and get all three. TV, FM, and AM. It’s a good deal and could be fun and/or useful!!!
  • Terrific app

    By Gangrenboqi
    No more guessing where the TV towers are. With this app, I was able to aim my antenna in the direction of the towers and get all my local channels crystal clear.

    Awesome tool for setting my antenna while on the road.
  • Great customer support

    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!
  • Huge Timesaver

    By RobbieBobbieBoo
    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.
  • Makes antenna aiming a snap

    By asdfghjkl;kjhgfds
    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!
  • So Useful

    By What Faye Wants
    Great app! Many thanks.
  • Just what I needed

    By Vhato
    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.
