Does anyone know if this anntenna...
Radio Shack Antenna
... will pick up an HDTV signal?
My local CBS just started (allegedly) transmitting an HD signal on May 1st. I have the Echostar 6000 with 8VSB modulator. I have hooked it up and it is picking up analog channels but no digital. This station is about 30-35 miles away from me (the station is in Cape Girardeau, MO and I am in Sikeston, MO if you happen to be local).
Please help if possible.
Thanks!

As long as the antennae or satellite dish/cable connection can get UHF and you have a HDTV tuner...you will recieve HD & SD television.

Thanks for the TitanTV link. That is a very cool website. I told it my info and it has my station (the CBS affiliate) listed as active to transmit an HD signal but the programming listing says "no programming available". It must not be quite working yet.

Thanks for the info.
