    Thought I'd pass along a link to a site where you can look up what OTA digital channels are available in your area (can't confirm how up to date it is).

    It doesn't work for me either. It gives me a list that is foreign to me.

    It showed OTA (Digital Antenna?) and cable channels ... neither are an option in this area west of Denver (in the foothills) - we don't pick up OTA and our area is not serviced by cable. It would've helped if Sat channels were listed too.

    It had more QAM signals than OTA signals. Ironically my zip code is in the Cleveland antenna farm, so it should have had every OTA signal listed!

    What's interesting about this site is that it showed actual screen shots! I recognized The Tube's "do not call your cable operator or WUAB" message that has been up on WUAB-DT 43.2 for the past 3 months. They have tohave someone in the area picking up these signals off COX Cable (or OTA if they would have tried harder).
