I live in Vero Beach and it's almost impossible to get a good OTA signal from any of the West Palm Beach stations, and impossible to get the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach. I won't pay for cable and, besides, the OTA signals produce a much better video quality on my Panasonic 8000 projector. Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated.

According to Signal Legends this is possible, so I ask the obvious, how high is your antenna?

Callsign Network Virtual Channel Band

Strong Signal WPBF ABC 25-1 UHF
Strong Signal WTVX MYTV 34-1 UHF
Moderate Signal WTCE TBN 21-1 UHF
Moderate Signal WOPX ION 56-1 UHF
Weak Signal WRDQ ABC 27-1 UHF
Weak Signal WFLX FOX 29-1 UHF
Weak Signal WFTV ABC 9-1 UHF
Weak Signal WKCF CW 18-1 UHF
Weak Signal WKMG CBS 6-1 UHF
Weak Signal WHDT IND 42-1 UHF
Weak Signal WPXP ION 67-1 UHF
Weak Signal WXEL PBS 42-1 UHF
Weak Signal WPTV NBC 5-1 Hi-V
Weak Signal WRBW MYTV 65-1 UHF

This is my setup

40' Mount
Winegard YA 1713 Prostar 1000
Televes DAT 75 Deep Fringe UHF

Boss Tech DAT-790 LR HD BOSS UHF Antenna - LTE Ready (149741) at 30' may solve some of your issues, due to its gain stage

why does Comcast in stuart broadcast ABC (431) in 1080i? ABC has always been 720p along with the channels they own, ESPN, Disney etc. Did I miss something?
