As previously noted, I am in downtown San Francisco.

I will only note where my experience differs from Brad's.

As previously noted, I am fortunate enough to be able to pull in these
channels *and* the various Sutro stations I'm interested in with only
a Silver Sensor antenna.

Didn't bother trying much here; no HD = no interest for me, more or

> 36-2 KICUDT  - fine

Same here. Not much luck in the few moments I tried with these
channels, but again, I don't care.

> 54-1 KTEHDT  - fine

I'm just as apathetic as you are about these. Even were it possible
for me to receive the non-San Mateo/Sutro Tower stations (Walnut
Creek, Sacramento, etc.) with my setup, I don't see what I'd gain from
them considering I already have over-the-air access to all seven
national broadcast networks. That said:

> 65-1 KKPXDT
> 65-2 KKPXDT2
> 65-3 KKPXDT3
> 66-1 KFSFDT

I *can* get these stations.
