What is digital TV transition & how will it effect me?
Local broadcasters were scheduled to stop broadcasting analog signals and exclusively broadcast in digital in February. The government has recently extended the deadline to June 12, 2009. This will allow for higher quality graphics in wide screen formats and multi-channel audio. It will also increase the number of FREE stations that are available.

Are you having a problem receiving digital channels?
There are a number of sites and blogs that help to educate home owners and businesses about the “Digital TV Transition”.

YouTube.com videos offer information regarding the transition and it's benefits.

We feel that many of the explanations that are being offered by others may be  over simplified and/or  position you to purchase  equipment that you may not need.

The goal of our site is to help explain the transition and offer our services to help you facilitate this change. Click here to learn how we can help you!
Is your home ready for FREE Digital TV?
DCS will work with your existing equipment and set it up for optimal performance.  We want to emphasize that an Outdoor antenna(s) will provide the best most stable reception and will guarantee that you won't run into any interference that you may experience with a typical indoor antenna.  There are many factors that can effect TV reception and some are controllable while some are not. To get better digital TV reception or to improve your current digital reception/signal may be a simple task or it may require a complete antenna system overhaul.

There are a few things that should be understood. There are no magic antennas using breakthrough technology. The antenna must be installed at a location that allows the signal to reach the antenna.  In most cases the higher the antenna is from ground level the better.  Be careful in your antenna selection. Make sure it handles both VHF and UHF signals.
When the analog shutdown occurs the transition of some UHF channels will go to VHF.  We have also found that the more money you spend on an indoor antenna doesn't mean that it is better.  Be careful on your selection.  You may need to adjust for optimal performance. 

Indoor TV antennas are hit and miss. The items to be considered are the construction of the house. Aluminum siding foil faced insulation and brick are all signal blockers. Also the elevation where the house is located will have an effect. Is it in a valley, on a hill etc... Is the house surrounded by other buildings or is it open in the direction of the stations.

If you have a rabbit ear type antenna always try that first. We find the flat RCA ANT Series work well in areas where you had good reception with the rabbit ear antennas. Again, with our experience most all of the small indoor antennas perform similar. No single fixed antenna will work for everyone, but DCS has a solution. We also supply and install outdoor coupled antennas and rotary antennas that work where the single antenna solution doesn't.
