Rick brings up an interesting point.  It is possible that TVI for hams 
on HDTV will blank the screen, so the TV viewer will not have a clue 
what happened, unless they live in the ham's house!

Maybe DTV is not all bad ---
I would say Rick, you deserve a new antenna and rotor.  There were some 
articles in Video Review magazine a few years back about optimizing a 
Radio Shack TV outdoor antenna for HDTV use.  Seems the author found the 
standard design did not have good gain on the higher channels so he 
moved the elements to optimize the response.
