We live in the Denver television market. Lately we’ve seen numerous ads telling us we don’t have to wait to connect our digital conversion boxes. So, today I hooked up ours. It required a google search to find someone who could explain how to hook it up through an RF modulator which we need for our VCR/DVD player. It’s now hooked up and working.
Sort of. We do get a couple more channels now, but while watching our local Fox station, the pixels and audio kept breaking up. I’m not sure if we need to reposition our rooftop antenna, buy a new antenna, or wait until February when some of the stations will boost their signals. Oh, and one of our two PBS stations doesn’t come through at all.
We’re getting too old to crawl up on the roof and install a new antenna. We could probably reposition it, but still. I really feel for seniors who have been using rabbt ears or who live in the country and will be forced to buy and pay for installation of a new antenna.
I think Bush should pay some of those unemployed folks to install new antennas for anyone over the age of 65, if needed. And since he’s throwing money away right and left, he can buy the new antennas, too!
