There was a vhf/uhf antenna on the rooftop of our house when we bought it 50 years ago. Over time I replaced the twin-lead with coax and have been receiving excellent OTA pictures from all the local stations. Last time I checked my TV there were over 120 channels available, including the three public channels in the LA area, 28. 50, and 58 plus all their subsidiaries. I also use that antenna for FM reception, since these stations are just above channel 6's frequency.

That said, I am sorry to see Locast give up.

I never signed up for Locast as I have a rooftop antenna and can get over 100 channels. From what I've read Locast did not require donations but if none were made your viewing was interrupted asking for such.

Less than 15% of taxpayers itemize anymore. I doubt that the $5 donation each month ( plus the 50-cent fee) would make much difference in the tax owed even for those who itemize. I haven't itemized since we paid off our mortgage 20 years ago.
