Thanks. Missed that post. Rescanned for new channels and found Ch. 20. Comes in fine a mere couple of miles from their tower. LOL.

Fortunately WHIO and WBDT appear to be stronger and will cover your CBS and CW affiliations. You can ignore the analog stations.

As far as needing a converter box, a general rule of thumb I use is that if your TV has HDMI inputs, it most likely includes a built-in HDTV (ATSC) tuner. Some people on the forum have gotten away with sticking a paperclip into their TV's coaxial cable input and using it as their antenna for testing purposes. If you pick up WSTR on it (your strongest station), you've confirmed that you have a built-in digital tuner.
Here's what I was able to get with the Mohu leaf 30 indoor antenna. These all come in crystal clear except 45-1 and 45-2, which have some interference.

That's great news! Keep in mind that signal strength for your weaker stations may vary, especially when we head into spring. (Leaves on trees tend to attenuate signals.) And since it's digital TV, you either get a clear, full-motion picture, a pixelated mess, or nothing at all.

I wonder if CH 25 is at normal power? I can only get an occasional signal from them here. CH 20 had a much better signal.

I will be going down to the transmitter today and do some work on the support equipment, I will have it on the air. For starters we will be running movies from our library of over 700 movies and your beloved informerical.

as far as I can tell 25 is still at reduced power but its much better than it was about 3-4 weeks ago when I couldn't receive it on an outside antenna 12 miles from the transmitter.
