Fellow RDU folks... if you're within the coverage of the WRAL TV5 (CBS) broadcast area you can get a free over-the-air antenna for your HDTV setup. Just provide them with a copy of the sales receipt for your HDTV or off-air receiver and where they can send the antenna. They do count the HR20 as an off-air receiver so that will work if you don't have anything else to send in.

For more information check out the WRAL website.

4-6 weeks to get it. But it's free. They will take a look at your address, run a terrian model and order whatever is appropriate for your location.

Here's what you're likely to get:
  • Within 30 miles of lightly rolling hills or 15 miles of rough terrain, usually a Channel Master 3022.
  • 30 to 45 miles of rolling hills or 15 to 30 miles of rough terrain, usually a Channel Master 4228.
  • 45 miles and farther out of rolling hills or 30 miles farther out of rough terrain, usually a Channel Master 4228 with a 7775 preamp.
