Looking at a google map, you were about the same distance
from Indy, Louisville and Evansville.
You're only nearby town was Bloomington and they only
have PBS I believe.
You are REALLY stretching it when you try to pick up digital
signals over 40 miles away and you were 60 from major
Bring plenty of DVDs!!

Thanks mtnguy for the response. You probably saved me from a "useless" purchase next time it went on sale at CW.

I actually bought a wingman that I place on the antenna
using heavy duty rubber bands.
I remove it when I lower the antenna.
It's a hassle but on those rare occasions when it makes
the difference between watching TV or not watching, I do it.
(Whatever it takes to keep my sweetie happy and camping!)
