I'm looking to cut the cord, and definitely don't want finicky (especially when DVR'ing to come back and find it didn't record).
At over 30 miles from 1WTC, you'll need something better than a rudimentary rabbit ears & loop combo to receive all the major NYC TV stations. You may need a moderate sized antenna at that distance. No way a basement antenna of any size will do anything. An attic installation would be better than blocking a window with an antenna, though. If your house is wood frame, you won't lose much signal strength if the antenna could be placed there.

Go here: www.rabbitears.info and use the "Signal Search Map" tool. Remember to input the correct antenna height AGL. Post the results to this thread so we can make suggestions.

WFUT/WXTV update, instead of installing a new antenna at Empire, they filed to increase their power from 195 kW to 215 kW on the current ESB master antenna and make it their final facility.
Pursuant to an alternative plan discussed with Commission staff, the Station has executed a new lease arrangement with the Building, which will allow the Station to modify its current facilities in order to use them as the Station’s permanent post-auction facilities.

Don't be too surprised/alarmed when you see it withdrawn/dismissed and refiled in the coming days. It appears that they submitted it on the wrong form, which will need to be corrected.
