I got those same three stations in Door County that Jack did. You could watch a cartoon, cooking or a travel show or home improvement most of the time.
Back at home I have 4 stations in the house and about the same sampling of Create, Outdoors, back to back Frazier eposodes on a lucky time slot...and a plethera of infomercials.
The AS in the drive actually pulls in more channels but the calibre is the same PBS mix with infomercials and the addition of very old reruns and springer type "entertainment" shows.
I'd take analog and pre-subscription tv in a heartbeat if I could turn back time! In stead I have been turning on the tv looking around and then turning it back off. I miss the news, (is there still real or independent new news
these days??) weather and lifetime movie channel. Paying for poor, repetitive, duplicate or commercial programming is not much of a step upward, imo.
I went to Radio Shack to inquire of antennas however. I was told an antenna will not bring in more channels than we already receive because of distance. So I would assume it isn't a matter of equipment as much as it is a matter of location to signal. Obviously in some circumstances it can improve what you receive but conversely in others it may not render a single additional channel.
We basically feel that when tv went digital we lost tv for all practical purposes and now rely on the internet and the radio. Movie downloads from Amazon with a single click is the way to go now.
