I'm a first timer at getting OTA HDTV. This has been an experiment in progress for the past 5 weeks. I have gone through four antennas (they are all here as I write this) before finding something that's satisfactory (rather than tolerable).

I live around 25 miles from Manhattan, where the towers of most TV stations are located. I am also aware of the directional information from [...], and have experimented accordingly with its effects on reception. My apartment's windows all face north, while the signals all comes from southwest. I cannot get signals from where it comes from, and thus needed to get signals from deflections perhaps off nearby buildings and trees. It's a very poor circumstance for over-the-air reception, maybe just slightly better than being underground. Signals are weak, and are affected by weather. Stormy and windy days have shown effects at disrupting signal reception.

With this said, and without going into much detail, let's talk about the antennas. Now all these antenna have been tested with the same equipment, setup, directional adjustments, location, etc. etc. and have been tested through good an foul weather, day and night, to observe differences.

1.Terk HDTVa Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna for Off-Air HDTV Reception- After reading some rave reviews and high ratings at [...], log periodic types (looks like a fishbone) seems to be the way to go. I got the Terk HDTVa first, thinking that the amplification and VHF antenna should nail my reception problems at the start. However, after more than two weeks of fidgeting around ad nauseam (directions, locations, amplifications, different devices, etc.

Because of costs and the fact that we don't watch much TV, our family recently decided to jettison satellite and go back to the venerable over-the-air broadcasts. I have a standard definition TV, so in anticipation of the change to DTV, I purchased this antenna alongside a digital converter box.

I decided to take a chance on this little unit because it was the least expensive out there, figuring it was worth a risk before I started sinking more money. As it turns out, the RCA antenna works great -- we have about 11 digital channels in our area and this device brings in all of them, even with the antennas fully retracted. What's more, the picture is fantastic (satellite-quality) and our digital tuner reports that the signal strength is quite strong. I had to do very little manual adjusting to make it work. I'm glad I took my chances with this little item before I started soaking my money in more sophisticated models.

Now, a disclaimer -- we live about 15 miles from a mid-sized city, so our location is pretty close. That said, I'm also within a couple of miles from an airport, which makes this little antenna more impressive.

UPDATE 1: I've experimented with several other models, including mid-range ($30-40) amplified antennas. To date, none of them have outperformed this little antenna, and most of the time their signals are inferior. The ANT111 has earned it's keep.

UPDATE 2: I found a Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna at a yard sale for a few dollars. It is the only antenna I have found that has outperformed this antenna. The Terk is work a look if you want to pay out the money (or can stumble on it used as I did), but the RCA antenna is still the best value for the money.

My husband decided to ditch Direct TV after getting abused by them over several years and overpaying for channels we don't watch. $29.99 for 12 months, yea sure. Because at one point we moved and had to place our service on hold for several months, they continued to claim those months as $29.99 months, even though the service was not being used or paid for at the time. So when we reinstated the account, we were asked to pay the full 80 plus bucks. Anyway, this isn't about Direct TV (well sort of).

Fast forward to why I didn't want to be impressed by this antenna. So I like watching the Food Network and I knew I would no longer have that channel. We talked about getting Hulu Plus for other shows I'd want to continue watching. I was a little peeved because my husband wanted to ditch Direct TV, but still pay for a $200 or more NBA league pass. We'd be still be saving about $700 for the year, but I thought it wasn't fair that he still got to see what he wanted and wasn't going to miss anything like I would. Whatever, I have other things to do besides watch TV anyway.

SOOOOOOOO, back to the point. He gets this antenna and I think it's a joke. I haven't used an antenna for about 20 years. I'm immediately on the defense about its tacky and rather embarrassing look, I just got done "reinventing" our living room. But he placed it behind our 46" (or is it 42? I can't remember)screen so the dipoles only stuck out about 7 inches, this is at the full extension. He plugs it in and a picture takes a moment to come up.

All of a sudden I'm seeing channel 13 in crystal clear 1080i HD. I tried to play it cool so he wouldn't notice I was impressed. "Well, flip the channel" I say in an icy tone. He flips it, again it takes a moment and I'm seeing channel 11 perfectly clear.
