I can get some of my locals some of the time. I can get ABC, NBC, and CBS. But the reception is very spotty, especially during the day. With cable, I can get 18 locals, 5 in HD. With cable I can get INHD1 and 2, PPV, HD DVR, my FOX Sports channel, G4, all of the Discovery channels. So flame me if you want for being a 1 time poster, but you must not have much to argue in the Voom's favor if that is all you can reply with.
