I have all of that.. and if you go to a site like TV fools and put in the zip you can see that you cant get much around here. just too much clutter. The main issue us that when the Syracuse stations changed to digital they also re-aimed most of the towers mostly north now. Very little is being sent south and with Digital being much more narrow band driven there isnt much you can do. With old UHF you could be on the fringe and pull in a signal.. Now its pretty much all or nothing.Almost all channels migrated to the UHF band. 13 and up for old timers. An HD antenna is a rebranded UHF antenna. The old "Star ship enterprise" antenna is VHF. I get channels from 70 miles with my UHF... Channel 2 is uhf 17. 4, 3 is 22.1 etc... A Good UHF antenna on the roof, proper math for your in home Coax, with an amplifier of THAT #, and you may be surprised.
Before digital I could watch Syracuse/Rochester/Bing/Toronto stations and with my rotor fine tune any of them.
I have talked with the engineers on this.. They realized the issue pretty early on but not much could be done once the helicopters flew off and the towers were loaded with the new equipment. They cheaped out on the setup.
