Antenna Advice

In Peabody, if you couldn't get WBZ in HD, either you must have been
listening at night, when HD is still off, or else something may be wrong
with the receiver or the antenna. WBZ comes in REALLY well on the North
Shore, and if they were running HD (and I can hear the HD sidebands all
day), WBZ should come in just fine in HD. If it doesn't, you need to do some
troubleshooting. Neither WMKI not WXKS is anywhere near as strong as WBZ in
Peabody but their daytime signals there aren't bad--I suspect more than 5
mV/m, which ought to be adequate but may not be.
