Use this program to check for the DTV signals that are available at your location. For more information on antennas, see the Antenna Guide. Signal strength calculations assume an outdoor antenna 30 feet above ground level. Actual reception quality may vary significantly for viewers using an indoor antenna.
This map also includes information on station channel changes associated with the results of the Broadcast TV Incentive Auction. Although their “virtual channel” — the channel a viewer selects to watch a particular station — will remain the same, some stations will be changing the frequency on which they broadcast, requiring viewers who use an over-the-air antenna to rescan their tuners to locate the station’s new signal (visit our rescanning guide for more information).
The FCC will update this page as new information becomes available, and viewers may contact their local stations with additional questions; click on the link to a station’s public inspection file for contact information.
DTV Reception Map Tips
- If searching on city, include state
- If searching on street address, include city and state
- Exclude PO Box, Mailbox, APT # in address search parameters
- Avoid using special characters, such as @, #, $, %, *, etc.
- Clicking on the red marker on the map and dragging it to a different location will change the search results, based on the longitude and latitude coordinates of the end location.
These predictions are based on a terrain-sensitive propagation model resembling but not identical to the propagation model used when calculating service and interference contours for licensed broadcast television stations. Actual signal strength may vary based on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, building construction, neighboring buildings and trees, weather, and specific reception hardware. Your signal strength may be significantly lower in extremely hilly areas. Click on a callsign for details about that station's Incentive Auction repacking plans.
