Great! If you get everything you need with the small antenna, probably no sense in bothering with the others. As long as you've got a good enough signal to have a consistent picture with no drops, that's all that matters.
You've inspired me to tinker with mine some more, and I've finally gotten NBC working reliably. I decided to see if it was possibly getting TOO much signal, and overloading the tuner. So I pulled the cable out of the back of the receiver, and sure enough, the signal meter jumped up from something in the 30s to over 60, and a stable picture. So I rumaged around and found a cable splitter, and put that in line with the incoming cable feed. Now I have a solid 93% on NBC! Still no hint of a signal for UPN though, nada. But that one is basically trying to come in to my antenna from behind, so it may be hopeless (not that there's anything worth seeing on UPN anyway). While I was getting a solid 100% on all my other channels, some of them have dropped down to 93% since adding the splitter, but of course that doesn't affect anything. I'm fairly happy... I'm getting everything in Atlanta with 93% or better, except UPN and PAX, which I don't get at all.
Right now, I'm so embarrassed to live in Georgia, all I know to do is laugh about it:
"I don't know how many of you have ever run over a skunk with your car. I have many times, and I can tell you, the stink stays around for a long time. You can take the car through the wash, and it's still there. So the scent of this Super Bowl halftime show will long linger in the nostrils of America." - Senator Zell Miller - Republocrat - Georgia
