It works, so I must be doing something right? ;)

But seriously, my knowledge level is a moving target: Everyday I learn something new here at DH.

Yes - I guess in 1964 I put my own BBC 2 UHF aerial up - I was surprised at the time how well it worked - maybe I shouldn't have been! Yes fairly happy with my knowledge but ALWAYS something new to learn!

$$$$$ :):)

And I do care about the tech- whatever will get me more channels. And gotta love that PQ!

Don't like the simsubs/big brother; like the US commercials- good for shopping.

Not a geek- just an OTA nut.

Always learning, but some of that gec and other plot/layout stuff is much, just give me dbs!

Frank's RedHot? Just bought a bottle yesterday and Blue Cheese dip- always seem to run out.

Frank's Red Hot sauce? That's for children and the elderly. Try either Matouk's West Indian Hot Sauce from Trinidad or else Sambal Oelek from Indonesia. Now that's hot! :D

Anyways, the poll is turning out to be quite informative - Canadians are smart people and OTAers are an even smarter bunch. :)

I was going to go the "Bitter" route...but I like maple syrup. I thought about the "Thrifty" selection, but I do care about the tech stuff. I was going to select the "Awed" selection, as I'm a geek (according to my wife :rolleyes:), but I knew just how amazing this OTA stuff was before I got involved. So the only selection for me left at this point was the "Dangerously Knowledgeable" :D.

I don't think too many here will be selecting "Oblivious" as if they made it to this site, they most likely have a clue as to what OTA is.

OTA is very addicting, my initial interest was just to get a few HD channels at no monthly cost. That soon turned into an upgraded goal, namely, maximizing reception of deepest fringe channels, while learning as much possible about this great new ATSC technology.


"OTA deep fringe reception can be an enigma wrapped in a mystery surrounded by a conundrum":confused:
