Digital TV DX from Fort Myers (2012-2019)

CM4228 on apartment lanai.

I began DXing digital TV in 2012, when I lived in Fort Myers. The switchover (for full-power stations) had occured three years earlier and, at the time, I wasn't interested in going digital... but there just isn't anything like DXing. My "retirement" from the hobby was short-lived.

Most of these catches were made on a Channel Master CM4228HD 8-Bay UHF Antenna and Insignia NS-DXA1 set-top box, with a Philips PT902 Portable TV serving as a second tuner.
