We are down to 2 channels OTA here-- NBC and ABC. CBS has picture but no sound. The 5 channels that are down do not mention anything about loss of OTA sevice on their websites! PBS from Morgantown has been saying they are going to improve their weak signal ever since the digital transition. Even when it was analog there was severe ghosting.

This forum is for Free To Air satellite services not Over Tne Air terrestrail broadcasting . I suggest moving this to the Digital OTA forum.

Severe ghosting was/is not a good sign for digital TV reception.
My VHF-Hi channels usually had 2-3 strong ghosts but I can still receive them after some work.

Could you post the results from filling out this form:
TV Fool

It will help us figure out what options you have

fafhrd2, If your east of the mountains and far from D.C. that analog ghosting (now digital TV multipath) is everywhere in the D.C./Baltimore area look for a new TV that has an A/74 compliant tuner all of the coupon approved converter boxes are suppose to be this they will get you the new digital TV from far away but no HD.
