Uh, Bert, look what you just said. You said you can't get WETA-DT from 
their lower tower
but you did receive their analog signal from that tower when thay had to 
transmit it from there.

To me this means that NTSC analog works better than ATSC digital, 
because under similar
circumstances you couldn't get the digital at all but you could still 
watch the analog even though
it was weaker.  Good enough for emergency warnings and weather 
forecasts? You bet.
ATSC loses this one big time.
