At street level in NYC, at a light? I doubt if you would have any 8-VSB 
reception with all the things in motion around you. Or even the static 
multipath. We did do this with a spectrum analyzer with an antenna 
expert and he said that 8-VSB would be impossible 99% of the time in the 
areas we were driving even standing still.
