    Hello All,
    I'm curious as to how far away one can expect to pull in OTA HDTV signals. I know this is rather vague.....but assuming one has a good UHF antenna and the terrain is reasonably flat (no weird geography).
    Thanks,

    There are a lot of variable that could effect you receiveing the signal, but a generally if you can receive the analog signal, you should also be able to receive the digital signal from a perticular channel..

    I have heard that some stations are broadcasting HD at 10% strength to save money, because no one is watching it. A chicken/egg situation, if I ever saw one.
