I recently got one from the local Fred Meyer store and reception is quite poor. I'll try again tonight.

This whole DTV thing is frustrating. Technology is a mess when government is not properly regulating things.

Across the USA, 28 stations use virtual channel 17. Care to tell us which one yours is?

At least one (that I know of) uses RF channel 17 as well as their virtual channel 17 - and they only have 3 subchannels.

In fact, that's the one I was thinking of... seeing 17.4 on that one would be like seeing a ghost.

Just tonight I watched a news story on one of the Charlotte stations about a "ghost train" which supposedly shows up every year at night on the anniversary of a train wreck in Salisbury. I wonder if there are ghost TV stations?
