I am in SW Greenville in a duplex subdivision out behind PCC. I went out and got my receiver a few months ago and have been very pleased for the most part. It's a basic Samsung 351, I think, and does the job that I want it to. Currently, I have Dish Satellite with the East/West Coast feeds and Superstation package so I don't really have a need for OTA or HDTV. I don't have an HDTV just yet, but I wanted the locals and especially WRAL since they have long been on the HDTV bandwagon.
I only use a amplified RCA indoor tv antenna and I receive WRAL, WRAZ, WTVD, WNCN full time. Likewise, I receive WITN, WCTI and their UPN subchannel, and (sometimes) WNCT as well as WUNM? (Greenville PBS). *LOL* J/K, I receive WNCT more often than not, but when their signal goes out or strange, it takes forever for them to get it fixed. But enough of that...
I also receive WLFL less often than more especially lately. Originally, I could receive it from 6 p.m. onward. I just recently picked up WRDC for the first time, but haven't been able to lock it in. I also receive WRAY (home shopping or something) from Wilson. Occasionally, I'll get WUNC from Chapel Hill. Once, I received WWAY from Wilmington.
I really would like to get an outdoor antenna or at least mount it in the attic to see if I can do more, but right now, I'm cash poor so still working on that. *LOL*
I'd really like to see our locals do more in the way of digital subchannels and from what I understand, WNCT has been tossing that ball around. It'll be interesting to see, around here, who jumps on that bandwagon and tries to follow WRAL. You know, NBC recently made an announcement that they are trying to launch digital weather stations on all their affiliates. I'm not sure if WITN or Gray Broadcasting is taking part in this. I'd love to see WCTI do it anyway. They've got the best maps (weather wise) anyway! *LOL* I'm curious to see when WFXI/WYDO comes online. And they need to eighty six that crappy news desk too. Ah, what am I talking about, I watch WRAZ anyway.
Back to my dish issue, which is a totally different subject, eventually my East/West is going to end. And I don't want to pay for the locals on satellite when I can get them for free ota.
Feel free to drop a line sometime, I'd love to see this thread take off in a big way!
