I lived in Ellwood City, PA for years, and used an outdoor antenna. I was able to get Channel 4, but it was sometimes hit or miss.
As for reliability, I didn't have any issues. I did mount the antenna next to a window on the 2nd floor, to the side of the house, and didn't bother with a roof install. Perhaps that helped it last better.

I have a newer Samsung hdtv that has a built in tuner. I will be happy if I can get cbs, abc,nbc,and fox with an indoor antenna. Yesterday went to local Radio Shack and the guy told me the amplified RCA 1650f antenna will get those channels--so bought it there for $40. Note that I do not want an outdoor antenna because I foresee problems due to the harsh winter weather here, etc. and, therefore, further costs to have someone come to always upkeep the outdoor antenna. So, only want an indoor or attic antenna. Well, positioned the RCA 1650f antenna everywhere in the room (first floor is where tv is) and I have not been able to get Wtae/channel 4/abc no matter where i put it. I can get cbs, nbc and fox clear and stable--but channel 4/wtae just has snow/fuzz. Therefore, I'm going to return the RCA 1650f. I looked on the Mohu site, put in my zipcode of 16066 and it had that the Mohu Sky 60 attic/outdoor antenna will get me the basic network channels including Abc/wtae. Anyone have any experience using the Mohu sky 60 OR have found any other indoor/attic antenna that will get me the basic network channels, including the elusive abc/wtae/channel 4 in the Cranberry Twp or North of Pgh areas? Thank you for any responses
