Default What over air channels can you get without cable?

Anyone dump their cable in the Providence area?

Did you go to an antenna for free HD channels? What, specifically, can you pick up?

ABC, NBC, CBS, the PBS stations, CW, ION with the converter box. There's others too I think plus some have 2 versions. 10.1 is NBC while 10.2 is RetroTv for example

I'm not from Providence, but doing a search on RabbitEars.Info , I found the following stations within 40 miles of Providence. You could probably receive all of these with a modest outdoor antenna on a rotator, or even an omni-directional outdoor antenna or possibly rabbit ears if you have a favorable location:

2.1 WGBH-HD PBS Boston
2.2 WGBH-SD PBS Boston (probably a standard-definition simulcast)
4.1 WBZ CBS HD
5.1 WCVB ABC HD
6.1 WLNE ABC HD
7.1 WHDH NBC HD
7.2 This TV
10.1 WJAR NBC HD
10.2 RTN
12.1 WPRI CBS HD
12.2 The Cool TV
25.1 Fox 25
27.1 Univision
27.2 LATV
28.1 CW
28.2 LATV
36.1 Rhode Island PBS
36.2 WSBE Learn
38.1 TV 38
44.1 WGBX
44.2 PBS World
44.3 PBS Create
44.4 PBS Kids

I rarely get 12, or Boston 02, and today no 36.1/2. Last year when the leaves came off the trees it seemed to have improved. This year it seems worse.
