I've got a friend who's a grad student at VT and WBRA is his strongest signal and before his current antenna got damaged, received WSET as well. His current antenna is whatever happened to be on the house when he moved there, which was pretty old.
With the proper VHF antenna, I would imagine WSET and WBRA should be feasible depending on your exact location. I admit I'm not terribly familiar with the geography in the NRV.
(and who did WBRA piss off at the FCC to get VHF Ch. 3?!?)
Well, a computer program assigned the original DTV allotments, and some stations just happened to get stuck with low-VHF allotments. The real question is, who in the management at WBRA was stupid enough to stay on channel 3 after the transition? Yes, I know it would have been expensive to move, but the benefit would have been to not lose most of the over-the-air viewers.

Yes, in October 2009.
