No cable in my house, but Dish was dropping according to my wife who works at home. OTA is maintained for just such an eventuality.

So far, I like what I see with The Tube. Nice to see music videos again. Kinda makes me think of a mix radio station; nice selection of music.

Too much 80's techno-pop-punk one video hit wonders for my taste, at least from what I've seen. Weed out the "early days of MTV" videos, and it's fine.

I selected 28.2 and watched and listened to the Tube. Was not bad. Have to agree with posts from below.


But for some reason I can no longer get 22.1 - wierd.

No problem in the morning watching the news. But Sunday night a Storm blew thru Holly Springs and I was forced to watch Ms Marpel on PBS over analog NTSC because the ATSC kept breaking up.


The better half remarked "So what good is HD?"

Yo, was WRDC-DT UPN28.1 off the air last night? I watched supernatural lastnight on WLFL-DT WB22.1 with a signal of 42-45% but everytime I tried to checkout "The Tube" on 28.2 I got nothing, not even a flicker of signal strength.


At 6am this morn I decided to check and it was on. I got to see Rush perform "The Spirit of Radio" in concert this morn.
Nice way to start the day.I like Rush.

I don't know about 28.1 but the Tube on 28.2 was going strong on OTA ATSC from 11:15pm last night until around 1 am when I finally had to get some shut eye.


Lennon, Blondie, Stevie Nicks, John Cougar, Roy Orbison, and so on were going strong. I felt like I was back at SUNY B watching it in the Union.

Titan TV doesn't have the Canes game listed for tomorrow night.

I assume it is on NBC17 here in Raleigh is it not? Hopefully not OLN again as I don't get tht.

I live in Knightdale (4 miles east of Raleigh) and I have pretty good HD OTA reception with my Radio Shack antenna. Soon I will have to move and I'm worried about this because I don't know how good or bad the reception is in other parts of Raleigh. Like for example North Raleigh, or northeast, at Lake Lynn, or Six Forks and Lynn. Mostly I'm interested to know if there are any parts of Raleigh that I should definitely avoid in my search for apartment because the reception is terrible there. Also, is there a best direction that my apartment should face in order to get bettter signal?


Thanks

Check out antennaweb . You can put in your address (or potential address) or zip code and get the antenna requirements as well as a map of where the towers are in relation to the location you input.
