    Thirteen remains the most compellingly informative, provocative, entertaining, nourishing, pertinent station ever; thank you many, many times over for all you do–Thirteen makes having a television set a profoundly important investment.

    I live in Harlem, in a house between Lenox Avenue and Mt. Morris Park. Despite having bought a new digital TV and an amplified antenna I am unable to receive any signal from Channel 13. I have followed all the prescribed methods of moving the antenna all over r the house without avail.I can get Channels 2, 4 and 5 but non of those broadcasting from the Empire State Building.I cannot afford cable. There must be thousands of people like me. Are you aware of this problem and do you have a solution?
