I live near Sea World, and can receive OTA channels quite well, in fact can 
get better HD quality than I get over Time Warner on Channel 12.  Channel 5 
is still working on their transmitters and the HD quality is not yet up to 
snuff, but they promise completion is a few months. All
I am using is Set top rabbit ears purchased from Wal-Mart.  When I first 
installed the converter box, I was really surprised at how many local 
channels are actually broadcasting, because Time Warner does not seem to be 
carrying them all.  I do periodically re-scan so as to double check signal
