I have a rooftop antenna which is about 16ft high with an antenna booster which we need for our local news stations. We also have satellite tv service for all other channels. We picked up the converter boxes and hooked them up and we get no signal. We had perfectly good reception before but with the boxes, nothing. All we get is a message saying " weak signal" or "No signal". I emailed the DTV questions page and they said that we had to have an unobstructed view of the signal and it only ranges about 50-70 mile. We live in a rural area of West Virginia and there are plently of obstructions, so basically we are out of luck. My question is how are we supposed to get important local news broadcasts? My satellite provider only allows us channels out of New York City, alot of good that will do us. Isn't there a law saying that we should have access to local news?
