I can see why some folks have problems with indoor antennas and digital TV. I connected a Terk HDTVa to the main room TV after the attic antenna cable stopped working. It only got WBTV, WYFF, WGGS,...

Google Fiber

I have seen the commercial for the Google Fiber starting in Charlotte. Are they offering TV service, and is the video quality an improvement over cable and satellite, or about the same?

Does Charter charge a major fee to reroute cable down from the attic behind the wall? I had to replace the cable due to a power surge, as there is now no signal. But I am having difficulty getting...

The thunderstorms are over Dallas again today I hope they don't hit WCNC again, or the other towers. But I would guess these tall towers are grounded good since they could be a giant lightning rod.

The new CM-7777HD Amplify has adjusable gain, either 17 db or 30db. So that would probably be a good choice, as well as the built in LTE filter. The other 7777 preamp has a fixed gain of 30db which...

Yes I have notice that. Now it look the same as WCCB. But both channels are actually 16x9 now whereas WSPA was 4x3 before. It seems backwards, as you now have the black bars on side for Andy Griffith.

Yes I know it is a temporary test signal. But will a full power UHF signal on ATSC 3.0 remain 1000kw or will it be able to achieve the same coverage area with less power?
