The availability of HD signals should be your ONLY consideration in buying a house (I know your wife must think your nuts, mine does). :)
Anyway, as you know, I'm in Plainview and receive Cablevision's HD Fox Sports, MSG, and HBO with CBS & Fox OTA (had been receiving WNET DT, WABC DT and WPIX DT). I believe I would receive WTNH if I had a VHF element in addition to the UHF only antenna I currently have. I say this because my Zenith tuner pauses for several seconds when trying to lock in on channel 10 with only the UHF antenna, so it sees the signal but doesn't lock in because of the lack of the VHF section.
I'm within 2 miles of the Plainview Wiz and about 7 miles of the Huntington Wiz.
Good luck hunting!
