I had some issues, but got them lined out in time for the AFC and NFC Championship football games on CBS-HD and FOX-HD.
At first, I bought an indoor antenna. Don't do it if you want consistent good reception. The indoor antenna gave me analog ch 2 good, ch13 with light snow, pbs and fox were rough, CW and CBS were off and on and digital matched (except 13 not broadcasting digital yet.) Ktwo sd and hd were the best with Fox sd and hd rarely viewable. I had 2 channels of PBS tuned in digital for about an hour once, but never again (wonder if they were just testing.)
I decided on an outdoor antenna. $80 later I had the Winegard MS1000. Fortunately, I have a place in my attic on the southwest corner of my 2 story house with an unobstructed line of sight to the whole mountain. Installed in 30 minutes and what a difference. Analog 13 (NBC)is as clear as analog can be. Analog PBS and TBN are ok. I have digital stations without a blip. KTWO (ABC) SD & HD, KGWC (CBS)HD, KFNB (FOX) SD & HD and CW SD.
The Chief Engineer at KCWY answered an email of mine and indicated that they plan on broadcasting off the mountain in HD by the end of January. (Hopefully in time for the Super Bowl)
Now I live near the 1700 block south in town. If you live closer to the mountain, it may be tougher to pull in the signals. A co-worker of mine is near the 4500 block south and has a different outdoor antenna in his attic (2 story house) and has trouble with reception. I may let him try my new antenna to see if it's any better. Yes, it's that easy to remove and put back in place.
