In northern climates, lighting is answered as there is no lightning about 98% of the time (most fall and winter days have none, it is rare before about 2:00 pm in the spring and summer, some, but by no means all, summer and spring days have any lightning, and, the days that do, it is only a small part of the day).
As for where someone would have little or no man-made noise- outside of the home, over the roof.
I have relatives near Carleton, MI. They have an ancient, heavily beaten combo on the chimney. The only Toledo station that is reliable is WLMB on RF Channel 5, despite their 10kW signal and 500' tower!
It is where indoor antennas are used that lowband DTV is a complete failure.
I really think the FCC had no idea just how many people depended on indoor antennas when they allocated the DTV channels.
