Here's some recent experiences...
WIVB CBS 39 (89 miles): Typically I can get this just fine, although certain conditions seem to cause problems. I do not like the current stretching of local analog content. The CBS network feed doesn't do that, so why should they? And it's still poor quality compared to something like Fox's stellar upconversion. Audio issues: staticy or drops out, fortunantly rarely during actual HDTV programming. Often gets stuck in 5.1 mode for non-5.1 programs.
WNLO UPN 32 (60 miles): Which I why I love the current CBS rebroadcast on UPN's transmitter - it comes it absolutely 100% perfectly. So, when there's the standard CBS breakups I know for sure it's in the source and has nothing to do with me.
WGRZ NBC 33 (87 miles): Due to its low power output, this one is spotty. But suspiciously spotty: it either comes in not at all (not even poorly) or 100% solid. I still wonder if they vary power output. Analog upconversion about on par with CBS, but I do not like the grey bars added to local analog content (the NBC analog feed is black, so why are they grey?).
WKBW ABC 38 (90 miles): Depite being the furthest station away from me, this one comes it rock solid. But since there's no HDTV content and a stretched analog format that's even worse than NBC/CBS's quality, I haven't watched much. Looking forward to HDTV, however.
WUTV FOX 14 (60 miles): As mentioned, the best analog upconversion of any Toronto or Buffalo station. Betters my 60" Wega's cable upconversion in color (expected) and detail (something I haven't seen before). No problems with signal strength, but they have been having audio problems - namely no audio at times.
WNED PBS 43 (60 miles): What can I say? 24x7 HDTV, great signal strength, no audio problems or picture breakups in the past few months. What's not to like?
CITY 53 (15 miles): With their recent slight power increase, I pretty much can't NOT get this. Analog upconversion better than most, but not as good as Fox. Good detail, but some flickering on fine lines. They've been having some problems keeping on the air in the past week or two, but it seems to be working fine now.
CKXT 66 (15 miles): Haven't actually watched any HDTV on it yet, but reception seems OK. Analog upconversion similar in quality to City. When this station first came on the air, it typically caused my SIR-T165 receiver to reboot. Doesn't do that now.
WNYO WB 34 (85 miles): WB transmission? What WB tranmission? I can get the analog 49 version just fine, but with their HDTV's incredibly low power output I may as well be trying to get Orlando.
Also, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on station's actual power output. According to info in the FCC database (not always accurate I guess):
14: 35kW (1000kW application)
33: 240kW (480kW allowed)
34: 0.65kW (167kW application)
38: 358kW (723kW allowed)
