Ralph - This is getting a bit off the subject of Cablevision, but I have a Channel Master 4248 fringe UHF-only antenna with a blonder-tongue MATV amp inside the house. I'll be upgrading it in a week or so with an outside CM preamp.
I can receive the NY stations (although CBS is more prone to fade in bad weather, probably because of its higher frequency). I get channel 43 PBS from Trenton stronger than the NY channels, even though it's about 25 miles further.
The only station I can pick up regularly from Philadelphia is CBS 26. ABC 64 is there very rarely, and I've never picked up NBC 57. I don't know if WB 54 and UPN 32 are transmitting yet, but in any event, I've never seen them.
I have a Channel Master rotator with remote control. After you point the antenna to the correct location, you can enter the channel number with the remote. After you've done that, you just enter the channel number the next time and the rotator points to it. Very easy to use.
Will - Send me a message when you reach Morris and I'll be glad to talk with you or show you what you can get here with outside antenna and DTV.
