WLGA is now running Antenna TV on channel 66.1 and 66.2.
After the first of the year look for the start of local programming on 66.1 with the 66.2 remaining as Antenna TV.
Look for more on 66.3????
Also WLGA (RF30) is now running at permanent height on the Richland Tower at Cusseta, GA.
Receiving reports of reception at over 100 miles out from the transmitter.

Permanent height? Does that mean the STA height or the licensed height?

Should I assume an application to make the new height permanent will follow then? smile.gif

New to AVS - first post.

I am thinking about cutting the cord and going to OTA.

I am in North Columbus, is it even worth trying an indoor antenna, or should I jump right to the bigger investment in an outside model?

Any recommendations for either?

I may just go indoor for the shop TV and go big for the main one.

 

Thanks for any guidance!

GeorgiaPilot,

You can certainly try an indoor antenna, but you'll get best results with an outdoor antenna, by far. You'll probably find that CBS, NBC and CW, FOX, and WLGA will be easiest. ABC and PBS will be your trouble spots. ABC is on VHF, and PBS is in Warm Springs.

Don't buy one of those plastic RCA-branded rectangles at the store. They're useless. My rule is that if it doesn't look like an antenna, it's probably not a good one. I like the Terk HDTVi (not the HDTVa) for an indoor antenna, if you want to try one.

I was hoping someone more local to your area might chime in here, because while there's only really the one indoor antenna I like, outdoor antennas tend to vary with specific conditions. If you would, go to TVFool.com and post the link provided in bold print for your location (it masks your address) and if nobody else chimes in, I'll try to make you a recommendation.
