That's right.
And over thirty is very, very good (at least that's been my experience).

I have noticed that WFYI is now using Dolby D 5.1. There now is a sports channel on WHMB 40.3. I am no longer receiving WBXI 47.1 weather channel. Is it off air ?

Thanks for the info on WFYI using DD 5.1. I contacted the station several months ago about the lack of it and was told it would be added when funds were available to purchase the equipment.

WBXI 47.1 is definitely on the air as I'm watching it as I type. IMHO, the best weather station in town with ALL weather info and no commercials.

It's funny, got WBXI this Summer with all the leaves on trees. Now in Winter, no leaves, no signal.

Looking to add an OTA antenna to my setup. I am just west of Indy in Brownsburg. Ideally, I want to put the antenna in the attic space. Suggestions for an antenna? Is an amplifier typically needed when the antenna is <20 miles from the stations? The RG6 cable run could be rather lengthy to my basement (50-100ft). Any help would be appreciated.

Mathematics is the reason for the season.

I would think that the recommended antenna would work great without a preamplifier.
You're really close to the antenna farm located to your North-East.
www.tvfool.com is your friend. It might even show you can get by with a less expensive antenna.

This antenna works in my attic in Cincinnati 20 miles north of towers.
Receiving both vhf and UHF bands.
(Vhf rating 15-20 miles:UHF 60miles)
Receiving all the stations from Cincy.(including low power stations) and some from Dayton on the backside of the antenna.

Spotted this interesting piece re: allocation of the airwaves, noting the 90th anniversary of Herbert Hoover's signing the Radio Act. Not sure exactly where it should be best posted in AVSforum.com, so I thought I'd start it here among friends. In any event, it makes for a good & interesting read.
