I thought Watertown would be easy to receive in Ottawa. I was able to start pulling them in using rabbit ears in the car even 30 minutes east of Prescott (using a DC/AC car adapter to power my Samsung 151.

I knew there was a LP Fox affiliate in Watertown, but it is meaningless to me without going full-power HD.

I have a feeling Watertown 'might' get an NBC affiliate after the digital transition. The area currently receives NBC from Channel 5 (WPTZ) from Plattsburgh, but their digital transmitter will be in Vermont instead of NY, so thee signal will be lost west of the Adirondacks. Hopefully that will create demand for a full-power NBC station in Watertown.

If I end up moving to Ottawa I guess I'll have to go back to Starchoice...
