That's what I have; I'm about 30 miles west of Boston. Works OK,
though I want to add another section of mast to mine to raise it
another 5 feet.

I imagine that's for cable TV. ATSC is using the same frequency specs
as normal NTSC channels use.

No, by time delay I meant time-shifting. Record ER Thursday night,
watch it Sunday. Works fine assuming all your ducks stay in the row

due to various problems (some of them reception).
