I searched around here but couldn't find this information...

My 2nd abode is located on the far NW side of Houston, and I was wondering where Houston's OTA channels originate. Wondering if my OTA antenna that I used at my other home would get the signals here where I'm located.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

You can use antennaweb.org . If you put in your address it will show you the direction and distance to the towers.

Ah, that's right. I remember that website now. I should've thought of that in the first place. Thanks.

Figures I'm about 24 miles away from where the signals originate. I don't think my current inside OTA antenna will be strong enough to pull a consistently good signal.
