This morning, I attached an oridnary pair of VHF telscoping rods to the back of my Sanyo 26" LCD HDTV in New Britain (the kind that are supposed to pop into a little slot on the back of a small TV). Here's what I got:

[D 33] WFSB-DT (CBS) Hartford 3-1, 3-2 ("CBS 3"), 3-3 (blank)
[D 10] WTNH-DT (ABC) New Haven 8-1, 8-2 (Storm Team 8 Doppler)
[D 46] WUVN-DT (UNI) Hartford 18-1, 18-2 (Telefutura)
[D 12] WTXX-DT (WB) Waterbury 20-1, 20-2 (The Tube)
[D 34] WHPX-DT (I) New London 26-1, 26-2 (PAX), 26-3 (Worship), 26-4 (Faith TV)
[D 35] WVIT-DT (NBC) New Britain 30-1, 30-2 (NBC Weather Plus)
[D 45] WEDN-DT (PBS) Norwich 53-1, 53-2, 53-3, 53-4, 53-5 (no audio), 53-6
[D 39] WCTX-DT (UPN) New Haven 59-1
[D 31] WTIC-DT (FOX) Hartford 61-1

Here's what's worth noting: My house is partially blocked with Avon Mountain due to Walnut Hill and its park being in the exact same direction. WFSB-DT is so-so while I'm getting almost nothing of WUVN-DT. I probably only get WTXX-DT because it transmits from Rattlesnake Mountain. Today was the first time I ever got any signal from WEDN-DT and it's still weak. With this same antenna in a different position early this morning, I also got a choppy signal of WPXQ-DT (I) channel 17 ("69-1", etc.) from Block Island/Providence, RI. That's likely due to their transmitter being in Exeter, RI, which is closer than Providence is to New Britain.

Now, on an unrelated note, my TV on some scans would show a duplication of sorts. It would show both "8-1/8-2" and "10-1/10-2" with WTNH-DT on some scans. I think it did this once with the weak signal of WPXQ-DT from RI. It would show "17-1" and "69-1". My TV is only two months old and it rarely does this. Normally, it channel maps and shows "8-1", etc for WTNH-DT. Hmmm!
