after the digital switch i was able to receive 1 channel which is 2 less than when it was analog. every possible factor that could hinder my signal is present at my location (hilly terrain, heavily forested, remote). according to the antenna web site everyone recommends i do not have any channels available so i cannot get advice on an antenna for my area. the fcc dtv map suggests 4 channels all with very weak signals. anyways until a month ago i was able to receive channel 12 coming from 85 miles away (the closest tv station broadcast). my signal strength never exceeded 18 but i was able to watch tv occassionally. for the last month my signal has completely dissappeared. i reset the converter box, unplugged, checked the antenna and connections. i know it cannot be weather related. converter box says there is no signal whatsoever. im using a RG6 coaxcable, inline amplifier. the antenna is pole mounted close to 60 feet above the ground. called the tv station twice, both times they deny any changes in signal strength or direction. like i said i did have signal and was able to watch tv until about a month ago, now with no signal at all. any idea what could have happened or what i can do besides satellite tv( had technician out here and was unable to get satellite signal) so over the air television is my only option. also are there any antennas that are able to pick up signals 80-100 miles away, they are my only bet.
