I've heard about Fairfax Antenna on other forums.
You CAN put antennas on your owned and/or controlled property...

Fairfax antenna can do it for you but watch the price,I have tried various antennas since winter and have found that the best was the Channel Master 4228.I called around to find this antenna without much luck(no stores had it Lowes etc)I then decided to call Fairfax Antenna,they had it, price was 99.95.I thought that was a little steep,so I kept calling.Turns out Marks Electronics in Beltsville had it the price-----50.00+tax went picked it up.I didn't want the antenna on the roof since it looks tacky (IMO) I mounted the antenna 11 feet off the ground in the back yard and I pull every sation,I live near Mt Veron 22309
