It is probably the same thing people were thinking in the late 50's, 60's,and 70's- "What OTA antenna will give me the best picture, rabbit ears, attic, outdoor?" The choices and types of antennas has changed, buy the answer has not - it's Winegard. It is nice to see that most stations are broadcasting Digital OTA on the UHF Frequency. but some stations are assigned VHF frequencies from the FCC for digital, and this requires a good quality antenna. I noticed even Earl in Tinley Park, Illinois can not receive CBS-HD out of Chicago with his attic mounted antenna,-due to CBS digital is being broadcast on VHF Channel 3 in Chicago. I also heard that after the Digital change over is complete, in a couple of years, that the FCC might also reassign different frequencies, so that some stations that broadcast now in UHF, might have to go back to VHF. This information was passed on by a Broadcast engineer. I am not taking any chances, I bought the top of the line Winegard HD 8200P Platinum HD VHF/UHF/FM Antenna (HD8200P), this baby can handle anything.
