How many OTA Channels do you have?

Me, I have 23 as of right now.  A few are repeats of course SD/HD  :D

I use a Channel Master 3000A Omni Directional Antenna

Here is what i have (so far):

2.1 WJBK-DT FOX 720p
5.1 WNEM-HD CBS 1080i
5.2 WNEM-D2 MyTv 480p
5.3 WNEM-D3 480p
6.1 WNLS-HD CBS 1080i
12.1 WJRT-HD ABC 720p
12.2 Livwell LWN 480p
12.3 WJRT-WX ABC Weather 480p
19.1 WDCQ-DT 720p
19.2 WDCQ-DT E/I 480p
19.3 WDCQ-DT Create 480p
19.4 WDCQ-DT PBS 480p
25.1 WEYI-HD NBC 720p
25.2 WEYI-HD 720p
28.1 WCMZ-28 720p
28.2 WCMZ-28 480p
28.3 WCMZ-28 Create 480p
49.1 WAQP-SP 480p
49.2 WAQP-HD TCT HD 1080i
49.3 WAQP-SD2 TCT Family 480p
66.1 WSMH-DT FOX 720p
66.2 Cool TV 480p
66.3 The Country Network TCN 480p

The CBS from Lansing (WLNS) and the FOX (WJBK) from Detroit are the farthest away, about 60-70 miles away.

Other stations from Lansing and Detroit i can not get on this antenna because their broadcast signals are too weak.

You must live in the desert/mountain part of the Country "billay" where OTA tv just cant make it over the mountains. I lived in the SW for a while and at first I couldnt believe it when I turned on the TV in the morning and the only thing I saw was snow. The repeater would fire up around 9am so we could at least see what the weather and news was....I will have to admit that it was pretty nice to have the peace and quite.

Chayim,

I am impressed with your OTA list!

That is a lot of good tv right there!

Post a pic of your antenna if you get a chance.

I would love to see it.

Live on Cumberland Plateau 95 miles to the nearest city can get 4 channels sometimes if the weather is right when they went digital last year almost no OTA. FTA much better.

There isn't much to it.  I cut 7-inches in from the bend on both ends of a coat hanger and put them back-to-back to make the "bowtie."  They are attached to a plastic hotel room key card with a screws, washers and nuts and a 75-ohm transformer is attached to the back side.  A little electrical tape acts as a minimal strain relief.  I nailed the key card to a scrap board, stuck it in the end of the pole and put it up against the side of the house.  It worked, so I never took it back down.  At the TV is a "Philips 24DB Dual-Output VHF/UHF/FM Antenna Amplifier" I found on an eBay daily deal for $8.

I am about 50 miles east of Indy.

"billay" Now I understand why you dont have any OTA channels. I spent some time at the Norris Dam near Oak Ridge and that is some of the most beautiful country Ive ever seen. I figured you might live in a mountainous region. Even the sun cant get through to the Plateau sometimes.
