I live in the Hartford/New Haven TV market. Our market is Connecticut minus Fairfield County, since they're part of the New York City DMA. Despite being about 35 air miles from Springfield, MA, I don't get a hint of their digital TV signals. Their three full-powered analog stations were always crap at this house (NBC 22, ABC 40 and PBS 57). The problem in this market is that the signals come from four different directions: Avon Mountain (CBS 3 and UNI 18), Rattlesnake Mountain (CW 20, PBS 24, NBC 30 and FOX 61), Madmere Mountain (ABC 8 and MY 59) and New London County (ION 26 and PBS 53). My home is at the bottom of a hill in southern Hartford County, which causes a reflection with Avon Mountain. The old analog CBS 3 was rarely perfect and UNI 18 was always unwatchable. I used to get ABC 8 from the New Haven area better than CBS 3.
As for cable, whether analog or digital via a QAM tuner, we only get one each of ABC (8 ), CBS (3), CW (20), FOX (61), ION (26), MY (59), NBC (30) and UNI (18). We get two PBS stations (24 Hartford and 57 Springfield, MA). Telemundo is from a low-power station which was last on channel 50 in the analog days.
