It's the TV Not the Antenna
RangerJay is on the right track. "they" are sometimes not correct - I've been told any number of stories by mediocre salespeople who don't really understand the conversion to digital transmissions. It seems all "they" are interested in is selling you something.
Some things I've experienced regarding digital transmission:
1) the signal is much more dependent on direction
2) the signal is affected by adverse weather
3) the signal is affected by other factors that I don't understand
Arrgh! I think digital is mediocre at best. Maybe that will change as I understand more about it but I know I could tolerate a fuzzy picture but I cannot watch a pixelated (is that a word?) picture.
