I remember those days. You had snow--but no pixileation..that's worse to me.
Well, you'll get a little bit of both in this video: the upload is a tad "pixely"...but it definitely will give you fine folks a taste of the kinds of picture we had back in out dim and distant childhoods!
This is not meant to imply we didn't desire a better picture, but often this was as good as it got. To be honest, it didn't affect our viewing pleasure. How could it? The shows were just too cool!
I had one friend who lived about a quarter mile away from me, and he had tack-sharp reception. He was also at a higher elevation, which I guess is what made the difference.
