Raleigh NC, Indoor Omni directional Antenna Recommendations?
Posted 02 April 2009 - 02:58 PM
Please share any and all advice. I'd really like to avoid having something outside.

I have two Dish receivers, for example, in North Raleigh.
In my main room I need a directional pointed at the Clayton antenna farm + another (omni or directional) pointed for PBS out of Chapel Hill.
In my bedroom, however, with a small omni 1/4-wave I'm getting pretty good signal on everything except for channel 40.
I can't completely explain the difference just a few feet and on the other side of one wall in my house.. but my antenna needs are clearly different just in that small amount of movement.
I always recommend buying from places like Radio Shack, because they have a liberal return policy that allows you to try a few different kinds of antennas until you find one (or a combination) that works.
