Cool Site for TV reception

Searching info for TV antennas, I came across a great site which tells you the location of broadcast antennas in any specific area. You can use this to predict the availability of TV at a campground you plan to visit. Check it out: Antenna Point

Thanks for the Tip

I have previously used www.antennaweb.org and have found that site pretty helpful. I like your link for ease of use and better mapping/graphics compared to antennaweb.

I usually try to "map" the direction of the transmitters when I know we'll be staying somewhere a few days. I almost always ask the campground host if they know the transmitter directions and I always receive a blank stare. If I've forgotten to map the directions beforehand I find my self walking around the campground to see where others have pointed their antennas.

It seems to me that all campgrounds should take few minutes to add the transmitter directions and distances to their quick reference brochures they hand out when you check-in at the office.
