You desire to check your receiving antenna system's performance on OTA DTV channels. I confirm what ProjectSHO89 says: you will need a spectrum analyzer or signal strength meter made for the OTA spectrum, which mainly occupies 174-216 MHz (VHF-HI) and 470-698 MHz (UHF) frequencies. (Cable TV covers more spectrum/wider frequency range, but cable meters and analyzers can be tuned to the OTA frequencies.)
It's possible that you may be trying for some VHF channels, but only have a UHF antenna, or something like that.

Edit: I think ladyh still needs to post his/her tvfool.com link. Plus tell us what market he/she wants because that antenna is picking up too much and he/she might need to change that antenna.

My guess is that since KDBC and KVIA are so far, those signals are not quite reliable for our OP. Without knowing details about the antenna setup or what the full list of stations the OP is actually receiving contains, it's hard to say anything for certain.
