I am thinking of dropping my subscription TV services. According to antennaweb.org , I cannot pick up over the air HIGH DEFINITION programming for our local 2, 5, 11, 46, etc. at my house which is on Capps Ferry road in South Douglas county. Anyone else in the area have an HD antenna at home? Are you able to pick up over the air TV from Atlanta?

I dropped my cable a few years ago. I'm a little closer to the city of Douglasville and all I have is indoor rabbit ears hooked to my TV. I can pick up 2,5,11,17,34,36,46,69 and all their sub-channels. On a good night I can get some of the low powered channels like 26 & 40, but I don't think they show much. 26-1 is a French CNN. 34-1 & 34-2 are Spanish speaking. I cannot get 8 (I guess Stone Mountain is too far over the horizon), but I can get 30 on a good night.

Just grab a cheap TV antenna, hook it up to your TV and see, You don't need any "HD" antenna (or even digital for that matter). My rabbit ears cost me about $25. I'm sure if I hooked up an external antenna, I could get other channels, but I don't watch enough tv to matter. Between my rabbit ears and Netflix streaming, I don't miss cable.
