    There is a 250 watt station about 40 miles from me, but its antenna is on top of a mountain. I can receive it from my car, with a stubby antenna they use these days, when driving into my garage, and a spot in front of my house. It is on a frequency of 92.5. Direction is 320 degrees. There is...

    I am in Chicago. After years of futilely hoping DirecTV would start offering subchannels, I finally learned about the AM21 Off Air Tuner. I used to love the ability to plug an antenna into my old HR21 and get all the subchannels and have them appear on my D*TV guide, and I've missed that. So I...
