Re: Roof mounted antenna.
- Thanks Dave,
I bought a receiver online and I'm waiting for it to arive so I can
play with it. I'm anticipating that the HD shows will look pretty
cool. I haven't seen an actual HDTV broadcast yet, just the demo
disk (simulated HDTV in Circuit City). I'll give my current antenna
a try first and hopefully that is all I need to do.

I'm 3/4 of a mile from Sutro Tower using a large high gain
antenna, and it works fine. With a large one you have a
much better chance of getting the more distant stations.
Enjoy the view!
