is that you will have better reception at 6 than 64, since 6 crawls around
hills better than 64, and the noise is probably not much of an issue at your

We just did our market wide DTV Soft Test tonight.  

Ch 6 in Philly just did a two minute test with a 'fail' message on the
analog channel

The problem with CH A6 is that they will ultimately return from D64 to D6 at

Right now I can only get a very bad analog CH6 with a deep fringe antenna 37

I wonder if I'll get anything when they return to Ch 6 as digital?
