Up Yours, Comcast and Management

Danny, the retired truck driver's response, to the Comcast monopoly in our building and the management rule that we can't mount our own antennas.

Haven't had a chance to ask him how well it works.

There's not much over-the-air TV you can receive here without a decent antenna. The Denver stations are ~60 miles away, borderline "Deep Fringe" area. Cheyenne is only ~30 miles and shouldn't be too hard to receive, but those little "Miracle TV Antennas!!!" usually aren't.

The last time I had my little portable TV receiver up and running, all I could pick up was one religious channel, and one shopping channel. I suppose I should try it again "Just In Case" I need a TV without cable.

Hope that antenna's on the North side of the building, towards Cheyenne, or I doubt he'll get diddly squat.....

It'll be interesting to see how it works.

What an excellent response and, per above, hope it works. Not that I watch TV, because internet, but still.

He is pointed SSE and only gets a few channels. Thinks me being on the third floor would do better, not that I'm interested. Comcast basic in this building is $50 a month. My internet only is $60.

Doesn't work well but he thinks it is worth it to give the finger to management. Not "permanently" mounted.

Up the Housing Authority!

He's either getting the Denver stations, or picking up Cheyenne bouncing off the Front Range!

The bad thing about TV going digital is that you either have a perfect signal, or you get nothing. No static, but then you can't decide when a signal is too weak and snowy to watch.

I haven't explored it with him. Not one of the residents I have much to do with, but I like his attitude.
