Stu, I live in College Station, and can pick up most of the Houston stations fairly reliably, at night at least. Daytime is generally unwatchable, depending on weather of course. My house is roughly 85 miles from the transmitters, and I use a large UHF yagi with pre-amp on a 35-40 foot mast. I would think from your location would be pretty good odds of getting reliable reception. Just use a good outdoor antenna if at all possible. Good luck.
