    Default No DTV signal - How do I get DTV?

    14 Dec 2008 last time I rcvd Fox in New Orleans area. 15 Dec they cut their analog signal. Late Feb I tried STB again and recvd locals CBS-1 channel, NBC-2 channels, ABC-1 channel, CW-1 channel, UPN-1 channel, and ION-4 channels, CBN-4 channels,Telemundo-1 channel, even though they were feathering in and out at least I had something. In late April I no longer rcvd, CBS,CBN,ION, and in May it got to the point where NBC and Telemundo,ABC and CW were feathering in and out. Starting the last week in May only NBC,ABC and CW but never able to watch a complete newscast or show due to signal weak. Using a digital antenna always produced no signal all stations. Throughout all this I've never thru this day rcvd using the STB, Fox, or any PBS stations nor our other Christian station. I've tried using an amplifer in line outdoor antenna, no signal at all, using the digital rabbit ears antenna produced no signal and rescanning has not helped. If whoever is going to ask for permission to increase transmitter power I feel this should've been accomplished prior to this fiasco. This is just my way of venting w/o being ugly.
