As you can tell from the list below, reception issues because of the switch to digital TV are rampant. According to Don Henry, Director of Marine Product Group of Shakespeare, stations were not necessarily given signal strength comparable to their analog broadcast power and many stations still cannot broadcast to their original market. That may not seem like a big deal to a TV audience that relies almost solely on cable or satellite TV, but in truth, the key to free press and free speech is equal access to the airwaves. If you find similar gaps in your “air reception” of local television, Henry suggests you contact your station and discuss it with them. It will take some time to sort this out.
