There's a complete list in the wiki here:

I'm in the southern part of the city and get the same results,  
however I've bought a second indoor antenna and have them booth  
hooked up to my pcHDTV-5500. I have them on opposite sides of the TV  
in opposite directions and now gleefully get both 2.x and 11.x  
stations which I couldn't get before with just 1... plus 5.x, 7.x,  
44.x, 9.x which I could always get.
