I'm at the corner of E Roy Street and 21st Ave E near Holy Names. Any experiences to share?

I'm about five blocks from you, on 16th E. between Aloha and Roy. I'm a little higher on the hill, but I will confirm what quarque has said. I have a little table-top Radio Shack UHF/VHF antenna (i.e., rabbit ears and a loop), with an adjustable amplifier. It is in my basement, and I still get decent reception. I sometimes need to rotate the antenna or increase or decrease the amplification. The only station I have problems with is 13 (off and on), but that is duplicated on 22-2 (although "temporarily" out of service). Until fairly recently, I got all my local analog channels with this same antenna, but now I get them over Dishnetwork for an extra $5 or so. I got tired of rotating the antenna. I've not had a problem with Dish.

I'm about 4 blocks south of you near 15th, and I have had pretty good luck. My TV has a built in reciever so just to see what I could get I attached an old single wire antenna that originally came as an FM antenna. Even with this I'm getting good signal from pretty much everything except for KING 5 which doesn't come in at all.
Thanks for the feedback folks. The Channel Master 4228 is installed on a tripod that stands about 6 feet off the apex of the roofline. It's facing the Queen Anne towers (West) and here are the results:

I'm sure that the results with change with changing environmental conditions. The HD300 has some reboot and audio and signal drop outs so there may be some contribution there.
