Nothing but static on Channel Z

I admit, I am one of a few sitting on the tip of the Filipino couch potato iceberg. Because I believe that watching television hours on end can lead to short term memory loss, we managed to live for two years without cable or antenna. Only GMA7 is on, with the requisite snowflakes, mosaics and ghosting--the works of poor reception.

I am way behind those series that everybody is watching. Take Desperate Housewives for example. I bought the full first season DVD and me and the wife are hooked.

It's been a few weeks since I installed a UHF antenna (Ernie Baron, God bless your soul) on a ten-foot pole just so I can start watching Philippine Idol but there's still the noise. Next goal is to get a longer tube to get all the channels right.

Heh, including ABS CBN.
