Hello HDTV specialists,

I live in Westchester County, NY (specifically zip 10501) and am looking to receive locals OTA in HD. I know NBC and ABC arent up in NYC yet but I am wondering if I may be able to receive them from CT. Can anyone help me out here? I know that ABC is attempting to get back up by November but I dont think they will have enough power to reach me.


Thanks in advance,

Paul

Zip 10580 and receiving CBS, Fox, UPN, PBS OTA from NYC and receiving ABC from New Haven. My guess is that the ABC signal will reach you if you're receiving CBS. Nothing to report on the NBC front.

bluetees,

What kind of antenna are you using? Also, are you using any kind of rotor? The reason I ask is because I have not bought an antenna yet and am researching before I buy.


Thanks for the quick reply

Paul

I'm a newbie too, live in Carmel (Putnam County) -- not too far from you. Looks like bluetees is in Rye, much closer to the city than you or me. I'm starting to explore the HDTV market too (I wanted to wait another year, but my 10 year old RPTV is dying and I figure why not make the jump now!) I too am wondering if I can get OTA HDTV up here especially since 9-11. My cable company RCN does not send out any HD signal and can't even tell me if they have any plans to. Looks like I'll have to get the SAT D-TV set up. Let's see what bluetees says!

Get the biggest channelmaster ant. that your wife and neighbors can tolerate. Get a rotor and pre-amp as well. Go to antenea web and if you are within 60 miles of any of the available HD stations, you have a reasonable chance of getting it. CBS NY, ABC New Haven both are strong signals. PBS NJ, WPIX NY and Fox Fake are a bit tougher. Good luck!
