More about Over-The-Air Digital TV

Tom in New York asks, "How many channels can you get?" That depends on the local area you are in, of course. Here, with basic rabbit ears as an antenna, I get six channels.

It doesn't have to be fancy, and the good news is, it either works perfectly, or probably not at all, or you will see "drop-outs" like with a faulty DVD. Generally speaking, the reception is better than you have been getting on your cable or satellite network. Here's an example of an air signal using rabbit ears here this morning....
