Before the fire, even though I'm 70+ miles away I had very good reception of WCAX and WPTZ, typically with close to 15 dB of margin on SNR. It will be interesting to see if I can get reception from whatever temporary antenna they are able to rig up, since its power is almost certainly going to be less than the original. I'm still holding out hope for watching the Patriots on WCAX (CBS) this weekend and also Sunday Night Football on WPTZ (NBC).

Towerguy, what is your WAG time-estimate for them restoring full-power? Is it true that the FCC will require them to restore the original broadcast radius as part of their license agreement? Or is there a chance that this temporary solution will eventually become the permanent solution, which would probably not be a very good outcome in terms of my reception?
