I wanted to share my recent experience for others in this area wanting to pick up OTA HD signals. I live in Hollidaysburg and recently cancelled my Atlantic Broadband cable service, keeping their internet and making it the Mega Max 15Mbps down / 1.5Mbps up.
I purchased the Winegard FreeVision FV-30BB HDTV Antenna (also known as the FV-HD30) and planned on installing it outdoors. The link below is my location reference:http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...8d17a22116a6fb
Luckily the back of my house faces the direction to most of the close antennas, and it was right where my main connection into the house is located. I had hopes of being able to pick up all 4 locals in HD, and I had complete success. My antenna is mounted about 10ft off the ground on the one corner of my house and it works perfectly. All the TV's in my house then share the signal and I get no quality/signal degradation. What's interesting is that there seems to be a new antenna/listing that's not on the maps yet. Below are the local's that i pick up:
10.1 - WTAJ-HD (CBS) - approx 10mi away
23.1 - WATM-HD (ABC) - approx 10mi away
23.2 - WWCP-HD (FOX) - not sure where this is located?
6.1 - WJAC-HD (NBC) -approx 33.5mi away
I was unable to pick up 8.1 - WWCP-HD (Fox) which was ~45mi away, which I expected overall. What I didn't expect was the seemingly much closer Fox signal of 23.2, a pleasant surprise which meant I can get all my locals!
I was also unable to locate channel 22 which seems to be a much closer WJAC (NBC) signal - but it was no loss for me since channel 6.1 picks up just fine.
I also picked up a few other DTV stations but I'll never really watch them, so I'm ignoring them at this point.
All these channels come in with plenty of strength and quality, I was pleasantly surprised - it barely took any tweaking of the antenna position to pick them up. The quality is outstanding - when watching primetime HD shows I can honestly say the quality looks better than what Atlantic Broadband's HD service provided, a great bonus!
I'm a happy camper now with my internet service, local OTA HD, Roku/hulu+/Xbox/Etc saving me alot of money each month!
