On Tuesday, July 30th, I walked to the Comcast customer service office in Plainville to pick up a small "free" converter. That way, I'd continue to receive my limited basic service. However, since the little box only has two 75 ohm coaxial cable in/out connections and a 1990s-like RF 3/4 switch, the thing is incapable of receiving any kind of HD. Therefore, I put on an old indoor antenna with two telescoping rods. I don't see any UHF elements on the thing. Anyways, with the antenna now (dangerously) resting on top of the roughly 1" deep Toshiba LED HDTV in my second floor bedroom (by a south-facing window), I'm getting the following:
WFSB-TV channel 3 Hartford [3-1 CBS, 3-3 Eyewitness News NOW, 3-4 WFSB Fairfield County] Signal 75-80%
WTNH-TV channel 8 New Haven [8-1 ABC, 8-2 Bounce, 8-3 WTNH SD] Signal 80-85%
WCCT-TV channel 20 Waterbury [20-1 CW, 20-2 ThisTV] Signal ~95%
WEDH-TV channel 24 Hartford [24-1 PBS, 24-2 CPTV 4U, 24-3 CPTV Sports] Signal ~95%
WHPX-TV channel 26 New London [26-1 ION, 26-2 Qubo, 26-3 ION Life, 26-4 ION Shop] Signal 70-75%
WVIT-TV channel 30 New Britain [30-1 NBC, 30-2 CoziTV] Signal ~95%
WCTX-TV channel 59 New Haven [59-1 MY] Signal ~70%
WTIC-TV channel 61 Hartford [61-1 FOX, 61-2 Antenna TV] Signal ~95%
WFTY-TV channel 67 Smithtown, NY [67-1 UniMas, 67-2 WXTV-TV 41-1 in SD?] Signal ~45-50%
WFSB-TV channel 3...I'm at the bottom of Walnut Hill, causing possible multipath from Avon Mountain. That's why you don't see WUVN-TV channel 18 being received on my above list.
WTNH-TV channel 8...I don't know how WTNH-TV is solid like it is. Usually, I got just about nothing from WTNH-TV's Hamden, especially with them using VHF channel 10.
WCCT-TV channel 20...Anything from Rattlesnake Mountain in Farmington will be solid, as expected.
WEDH-TV channel 24...see WCCT-TV
WHPX-TV channel 26...fairly solid signal so far. Montville site isn't always perfect, though.
WVIT-TV channel 30...see WCCT-TV
WCTX-TV channel 59...surprised the signal is stable so far. WCTX-TV from Hamden isn't always watchable.
WTIC-TV channel 61...see WCCT-TV
WFTY-TV channel 67...This one surprised me! I hadn't received any trace of this signal since the snowy analog days of WHSI-TV, when they carried Home Shopping Network 24/7.
I have yet to receive a hint or trace of anything from Springfield, MA. I haven't attempted an antenna hookup on the second TV in the east side bedroom at all.
OK, the antenna got knocked over a few minutes ago. I put it back up nearly how it was prior to that. With the rescan, I lost WFTY-TV from Smithtown, NY. However, I picked up WUVN-TV channel 18 of Hartford, with roughly 50-60% signal (TV displayed WUVN-TV as "46-1", etc.). That signal is stable for now.
