I'm just south of you in Pembroke. I'm located 77 miles from WRAL, WTVD, WNCN, WRAZ, WLFL & WRDC's towers. Luckily all of them are in the same general area so no need to constantly redirect the antenna. I use Channel Master Crossfire 3671 UHF/VHF rooftop antenna 25 feet high, a CM7777 ampllifier and CM rotator. At my distance I get WRAL 5(DT53), WTVD 11(DT52), WNCN 17(DT55) about 70% of the time and WRAZ ~45% of the time in mornings and the evenings. WLFL 22(DT57) & WRDC 28(DT27) are at low power so I can't pick them up any. WPAX 62(36) SD (from Lumber Bridge(between you and me) is live now.
Your less than 65 miles from their towers so with a medium to large antenna you should pickup WRAL, WTVD, WNCN all the time and most likely WRAZ & WPAX also. Hard to say about WLFL & WRDC.
South of you WBTW 13(DT56) out of Florence has SD live now. I get them at 100% all the time.WPDE 15(DT16) & WWMB 21(DT20) is suppose to go live tomorrow but the could be a week or two late.
Another alternative is Time Warner Cable of Fayetteville. They have HBOHD, SHOHD, PBSHD Demo Loop, WRAL, WTVD, WNCN in HD and WRAZ(480i/p national feed upconverted to 1080i by WRAZ) also they have WRAL, WTVD, WNCN & WRAZ's SD channel.
