I just found this forum. Allow me to introduce myself. My real name is Steve and I live in Lexington. I see we already have a Steve here, so I am Floundahead (don't ask).
Last week I hooked up my new RCA DTC100 STB to my Pioneer HDTV ready 53" receiver. I'm using a cheap old UHF antenna an am receiving pretty good signals on WLTX and the PBS station. I am amazed at the picture quality. I have tracked down a Radio Shack UHF antenna that was recommended and it is on order. Of course I'm receiving what Directv has to offer. Anyway, I'm thrilled to find this forum.
Here is a email that I recently received from the Director of Engineering at WACH-TV 57. I'm not a huge fan of their programming. I just want all the HDTV I can get.
Thank you so much for your interest in our TV station. I congratulate you for moving ahead of the curve and purchasing digital equipment. You must be the envy of your neighborhood. Your enjoyment level will increase very soon. My target date for DTV is late or mid September. We are installing a brand new DTV and a brand new NTSC transmitter as we speak. You will be interested in knowing that we will be going from 520 feet to 1,700 feet with our new transmitter antennas. Keep watching and feel free to contact me at any time for updates. You the viewer are our most valuable asset.

I will be watching this forum for any activity.
