Before I do that, I'd like to ask a basic question to confirm: FOX 25/48 does transmit their signal (specifically the Packers) in HD over the air, correct?
Thanks in advance to your responses....
Yes, WLAX does transmit the NFL in HD and does favor Packers games over Vikings games in the same time slot *shakes fist*.
I worry that you may have a really hard time getting WLAX down in the valley there. Thankfully, you probably have a long shot over the river valley before hitting the Iowa bluffs though. You might want to drive around town looking for any newer-looking fringe antennas on people's roofs to get an idea of what others might be using.
Edit: Actually, tvfool.com seems to think that you should not have too hard of a time getting WLAX with a good antenna and booster.
