Supposedly this should work for both VHF and UHF but apparently I'm having problems picking up the VHF signal because I'm missing both WDAZ and KFME. Even when KBRR goes full power digital I'll probably have problems there. I'm guessing I need an outdoor antenna that'll pick up both UHF and VHF.
As techman said, it's probably your antenna causing problems.
My SDTV on the 2nd floor is using rabbit ears I bought for $8 from Wal-Mart since I'm too lazy to hook it up to the rooftop antenna, and I get stable signals of KXJB/CBS 4, WDAZ/ABC 8, KVLY/NBC 11 and KCGE/PBS 16 fine. (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1171058630499
- though the price has gone up since then)
My HDTV on the first floor is on a rooftop antenna pointing south and i get KXJB/CBS 4, WDAZ/ABC 8, KVLY/NBC 11 and KCGE/PBS 16 fine, as well as KBRR 10 with dropouts, and occasionally WDAY/ABC 6 and KFME/PBS 13 (I finally got it yesterday).
I'm in the south end of Grand Forks with regular Midco cable (not digital cable) so I use OTA to watch HDTV broadcasts on the networks. WDAZ, KXJB and KVLY's towers are about 45 miles from my house, KCGE and KBRR's are about 20 miles, and KFME and WDAY's are about 65 miles.
