Digital TV and Antennas
Posted in the Lindley Forum

I've been reading and studying up on the Feb. conversion to digital tv we all keep hearing about. There is a lot of bad information floating out there and thought I might bring it up here seeing as how there are a lot of OTA (over the air) tv households in the rural areas.
There is an ad on tv saying that if you use an antenna, you will need a converter box to continue using antennas. WRONG! It is an issue of what type of tuner you have in your tv set, not your antenna.
And don't be fooled by antenna ads saying they are any different due to HDTV or the DTV conversion. Again, nothing but advertising hype.
WENY, WETM, WYDC BIG FOX, WBNG will still be availabe after conversion on the same antenna you use now.
If you still turn dials on your old set....... YOU will need a converter or a new tv. Converters can be bought for real close to $40, the same amount of the federal coupon availabe, making the converter about free.
Any questions - throw them up here!

site to apply for a free coupon. It is like a debit or gift card you can use at a store or to purchase on line.
tvfool.com has a very accurate process of determining what channels are in which direction based on your street address.
This weekend I made a custom indoor antenna for channel 48 and plugged it into my dish network receiver to get channels 18, 36, and 48. Works great!

The conversion wasn't so bad.
