Not very accurate.

I put in my address and not only did it not list a single Atlanta station but the only station it did list was out Columbus, GA (which I don't receive)

Yeah, decisionmark's DB is also missing our Fox station. It had been a wimpy early test transmitter (that I was actually able to get anyway) and is now a full power digital.

Ah well, mistakes happen. :)

I believe it when it talks about building on AntennaWeb, because it's too conservative. It tells me I should get:

The following digital stations are available at your location.
14.1 KXAM-DT1
14.2 KXAM-DT2

First of all, there is no 14.2 any more and hasn't been for a few years. Second of all, with a good outdoor antenna solution I also get 7.1, 18.1, 18.2, 24.1, 24.2, 36.1, 42.1, 42.2, 54.1 and 62.2 with a very strong, consistent signal. And there is no 2.1 yet; KCWX isn't going digital until KENS in San Antonio gives up its signal on analog channel 5.

It does seem to be based on very old data. I think KTLA-DT5.5 has been off for a long time.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

That data is VERY dated and inaccurate... I think the data for 4 stations in my area was wrong. One doesn't exist, one has the incorrect channel number, and other info that is wrong.
