I was wondering if the locals in this area could assist me in some of the questions I have. I just finally got my first HDTV and I'm dyin to watch some of my shows in HD. Only problem is, the local WB doesn't broadcast in HD and UPN is not local. Those would be the stations at this moment that I want before I commit to a HD package from a Sat provider.
Let me start off with some info before the questions. I live in Campbell and am at the top of the valley. I use a cheesy little antenna that actually works pretty well in my basement for the local WYTV-DT, WFMJ-DT and WKBN-DT.
Ok, the two stations that have my shows in HD(I think) are WBNX-DT (Akron, OH, 61.1 miles from me) and WUAB-DT (Lorain, OH, 62.1 miles from me). Both are 298 degrees from my location.
Now the first question would be, do those two stations broadcast in HDTV? I can't seem to find if they shows are actually broadcasted in HDTV.
AntennaWeb says that Violet antenna w/ pre-amp would be suitable. But, I still live with my mom, and I don't think she'll appreciate an Oil Tanker's anchor on the roof. TitanTV suggested a SquareShooter 2000 which looks very nice compared to an achor. So, the question would be, is it still possible to pick up a signal 60 some miles from me?
Any help would be appreciated. I'm still scouring through the Antenna forum, but thought I would check to see what the locals may be using.
