Need a really good hi-def indoor antenna. Any suggestions?
That's about your best bet. Forget all of the amplified garbage. The link is a uhf only antenna, so if any of your digital channels are VHF (ie 2-13), it's not going to work for you.
Moving to Broadcast forum.
Here's a couple of other options.
They have a money back guarantee.
I don't think there is anything that makes an antenna Hi-Def.
You just need a good antenna. Antennas work for either Hi-Def or
Standard Def / Analog, it is the same as far as antennas go.
Not according to a Best Buy salesman I spoke to. :lol: I argued with him for at least 30 seconds before I gave up and walked away. I'd been receiving HD for over 3 years and this jerk tried telling me I needed an "HD" antenna. :nono2: When I told him, "No, all you need is an everyday UHF antenna" he about went ballistic! J6P Salesman! :rolling:
Maybe u told him wrong, maybe u should of told him that all u need is a everyday, UHF/VHF antenna
first make sure at what power levels are the stations broadcasting at.
If the stations are broadcasting at low powers then u might need a Outdoor rooftop bigger antenna.
check the power levels here at http://www.100000watts.com/
but it requires a paid subscription
or u could wait until July 2005 when Stations are mandated by FCC to broadcast in full power
Go to http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx and check your stations. It will color code each station and the antenna should then match the colors(ie, for red and blue stations, make sure the antenna has those colors in its reception chart). Hopefully I am using the right terminology but it worked well for me. Just installed a Channel Master 4228 in my attic yesterday and antennaweb showed most of my stations were about 30 miles away. Picking everything up flawlessly as of last night.
Is this the date give for the ones transmitting at low power? If so, has it changed again in the last month or so?
Ive got this problem with 2 stations in Savannah (NBC and FOX).
I bought a Phillips Silver Sensor Antenna at WalMart for 27.88, it works like a charm, I get all my locals except UPN 53. And the HD comes in beautifully. Watched the AFC Champoinship game on CBS in pristine 1080 i, and it never pixelized or cut out once.
My television is on the second floor though
What makes an antenna a good HDTV antenna is its ability to reject multipath signals. thus it is more directional and rejects signal from its sides and back.
