OTA is Set Up!

August 27th, 2013 at 07:41 pm

Our over the air antenna is in the attic and working! We get all the stations we are suppose to. The picture is so much clearer. My husband thinks we might need an amplifier, but we are going to wait and see.

The cable boxes are boxed up and set aside to return to the service provider. The next step, is to set up our Google Voice phone number through the internet connection. That will be done tomorrow. If all goes as planned, I can cancel phone and tv service by the end of the week!

If you are interested in knowing which broadcast television stations you might be able to receive in your area, check out the FCC website. We are receiving all the 'green' stations and one 'yellow' station. Since several stations broadcast more than one channel we have 23 channels plus a radio station. The last thing I will add is that we are receiving several stations that are over 70 miles away. We purchased an antenna that would pick up this distance.

I'm happy to report I have been using my gym membership after a summer lull. The girls have been in school for 5 days and I made it there four of those days. I really hope I can stop and ultimately reverse my weight gain. I feel pretty positive I can.

Are you exercising? Is your goal maintaining or losing? Do you pay for a gym membership? Or workout for free in some other way?

    I just re-upped my yearly (started my 3rd year) membership to Planet Fitness. It costs $99/YEAR. They are a bare bones facility (weight room, treadmills, ellipticals, weird stepper-like machines and stationary bikes) but to me, it is well worth it.

    What stations do you get with the antenna?

    @ME2, I would very likely be at Planet Fitness as my old gym pals joined there after I left. They like it. We don't have one here, yet, but I'd would join if it was possible.

    We get CBS, NBC, THis TV, MeTV, ABC (live) ABC (previously recorded), PBS plus two two stations they broadcast, a radio station Smile, then two other PBS stations, two FOX, ION, Qubo, and Ionlife and QVC. That's 17 stations plus one radio station.

    I will edit my post to add that anyone can check FCC with their address to see which stations are available. The stations we have are all 'green', except one yellow, which isn't the best, but does come in sometimes. Some of these stations are over 70 miles away!!

    I tested mine - green stations for me are pretty accurate, although I don't get one yellow station - but I might try throughout the year to see if I sometimes can. I just use my interior antenna.

    Our original interior antenna did not pick up any stations in the basement and only a few upstairs, thus why we went with the cable package, which we are now getting rid of because of our attic antenna.
