    I recently saw a link in a thread to a site that would locate all of the broadcast towers in your local vicinity by your address, and I have been searching all morning but cannot find the thread it was in.

    Does anyone recall this and could you please point me in the right direction? (no pun intended)

    Thanks

    Also look at www.titantv.com to check actual DTV stations and relative signal strength.
    It's a free signup, log-in....

    i found a few more: As I am new to HDTV and am looking for HDTV stations that I can receive OTA. I spent an hour today doing a little online research. I found these sites to be helpful in tracking TV stations in my area, along with antenna height, lat and long, distance and heading. also a calc for antenna horizon.
    I don't think I can attach a file to this forum so here's what I used the information for. I created a spreadsheet that has distance, heading, antenna power, height and I calculated the antenna horizon for each station in my area based on its height and my antenna's height, to get an estimate of the probability of me getting a good signal. Helpful links
    how far is it calc's distance-
