digital converter box -- surprising performance
Sat Jun 14 15:20:45 EDT 2008
I just fired up dtv box #2, a channel master cm-7000 [~$80 before
coupon, s-video out], on wabbit ears on the 2nd floor of my house in
Swampscott, facing the ocean, SSW. Blue Hill [I've got hazecams up
there too <g>] is "in the way" of Providence, but 22 miles
away. Again, for what this antenna sees, goto www.hazecam.net/boston.html .
With the wabbit ears just tossed behind the TV and no fussing, this
box pulled in a whole bunch of channels I'd never seen before,
including the 2 main Providence ones [analog 10 and 12],
perfectly. I suppose this isn't that surprising given the clear shot
over the water from here. No NH stations [that I recognized at least]
tho. There's a hill right next to me to the North, and a few walls too.

Just curious. You people with rabbit ears in Greater Boston how is
the DTV signals out of Providence and New Hampshire doing?
The VHF signals of 10 and 12 traditionally had problems in Boston
because of Great Blue Hill.
