Not everyone can put up a huge, old-school, low-VHF antenna outside. And it still doesn't solve the thunderstorm/E-Skip issues.

Same here, 8 came in the best. 19 was the best UHF; 23, 25, and 61 also very good. 5 was so-so (usually watched ABC on 23 when I lived in Hinckley, as it came in much better). Only difference in...

Just electrical/impulse noise interference mostly (though E-skip was occasionally a problem in the summer). One of the first PC's I owned, couldn't turn it on if anyone was watching channel 3 in the...

Could very well be, but since switching power supplies, compact florescents with electronic ballasts, etc., are everywhere now, I doubt my situation was atypical.

True, the only hope is that most broadcasters don't go for the auction (yeah, right, with the monetary values being discussed), ot that channel-sharing with 2 HD and 2 SD on each 6 MHz channel works...

That wasn't my experience with WKYC on RF2, you could not get it with an indoor antenna no matter what (even WOIO on RF10, and WJW now, I can get with rabbit ears, even in the basement). Even an...

Yep, those channels are such a digital reception nightmare I can't see any station moving there, unless they totally don't care about their OTA signal and only want cable must-carry.

As long as it is a channel that I didn't actually want to watch, I suppose.

WKYC on RF2 would just dissappear sometimes during summertime DX openings. And forget about watching it if there's a...

NW Medina county (Litchfield).

I've caught CKCO on 13 a couple of times in digital and CHCH/51 digital is fairly common in the summer.

WFMJ was in last night, for the first time since last summer.

No MeTV in Detroit, though. Also, WADL is going to be sold in the spectrum auction, so no Antenna TV there soon.

Would be nice to have Cozi and Decades here.

W16DO-D: 95% signal strength in Litchfield (NW Medina Co.). As good as any of the full-powered stations in the Cleveland Farm.

I thought WCLQ did OK until WOIO signed on (they also carried Preview Subscription TV until 1983). After 19 and 55 signed on, the market couldn't support 4 independents, so WCLQ sold out to HSN.

I guess the outage caused their local commercial timing to get messed up again, saw part of Twilight Zone wiped out by a local break that ran too long.

Yep, reception is rock-solid here on 61, it is an encoder issue (or too little bandwidth allocated - possibly when there is a lot of motion on both 61.1 and 61.2). Would be curious what the rates are...

Same here, no 16:9, and must be getting about 1 Mbps with all the pixelation. At least GetTV looks a little better.

Aren't 14-20 off limits in a lot of large markets like NYC? So that would leave 7-13 and 21-28. How could you possibly fit all those stations (even assuming channel sharing of 2 HD and 2 SD streams...

3, 5, and 8 all had small self-supporting towers next to the big towers back in the 80's, IIRC. I assumed they were for backup transmitters.
