How do I find out what signal strength I have with an OTA antenna?

I've recently gone with an outdoor antenna. I hear others talk about the signal strength they receive for various television stations. When I asked a Winegard representative how I determine how much my television is receiving on each network, he replied that my scan would display that information. That was not the case.

When I use my romote to scan for all available channels, it merely locks in the stations that I pick up with no additional information displayed on my screen. This information can be very important to know, particularly if I have fringe stations that I want to keep while considering anything that would alter that signal strength such as a splitter or anything else.

Once I know how much signal I've got on each station, my second question would be to understand how much is the minimum required to maintain an HD signal for any given television station.

Thanks for any replies.
