How many VHF channels are you getting?
In my market, we have three VHF broadcasters with five subchannels -- 8.1, 8.2 (ABC, WMTW, Portland, ME), 9.1, 9.2 (ABC, WMUR, Manchester, NH), 11.1, 11.2, 11.3, and 11.4 (PBS, WENH, Durham, NH). I can get 8/11 or 9/11 with a stationary antenna, but cannot get WMUR and WMTW without repointing the antenna. We also get 5.1 and 5.2 ABC/WCVB which is UHF and in Boston. WCVB and WMUR carry MeTV as a subchannel. Only WMTW carries Heroes and Icons. So, I get two VHF stations out of three possible.
