Tonight I was able to receive all DTV channels (48 NBC,36 Fox,34 CBS

27 PBS) located in the Washington,D.C. area. This occurred during a pretty bad thunderstorm with strong winds, lightning, and rain. The only time I lost audio was during a couple of close lightning flashes and even then the drop outs only lasted for about 2 or 3 seconds. I did not detect any lost of video during the storm.

I am at least 25 miles away from the closes transmitter from were I live. I say that's pretty amazing when you consider I'm only using rabbit ears inside an apartment (second floor) with no direct line of site to the transmitters. My reception was as if it were a nice sunny day outside.

Pretty amazing results for those that doubt the current transmission standard wouldn't you say.

I forgot to mention that I am using a RCA DTC-100 stb.
