    WELL it's a nor'easter... I have pretty good reception on every channel except the locals! ALL locals are off the air! "no need to call us- we are aware that this TV station is temporarily unavailable..we'll have this channel back as quickly as possible. Sorry for the interuption"

    Lancaster,...
    That's why an OTA antenna(s) is needed as a backup. Hope you get your local stations back soon. I hear some areas of VA and NC got over 5" of rain.

    I don't think I got 5 inches, but it was pretty steady for about 2.5 days.

    Agree 100% about OTA antenna / TV to receive it on. Hurricanes really play havoc with DBS, and not much better on digital OTA...
