I would like to see a list of those 21 channels. Maybe he is talking of 
program channels. Maybe he is between markets and picks up two or more. 
I only tried aiming at the Empire State building because there is a wall 
of buildings in any other direction from me. Not the six story apartment 
buildings he talks off. At Mark's we will receive no more than I am 
receiving I believe.
