I am not able to use a roof top antenna in the office where I have a crt tv with a newly purchased digital/analog converter. Is one type of indoor antenna better than another? Any recommendations as to the best indoor antenna? best, Aaron
A 12 inch piece of wire out the back of the converter works near a window for the strongest stations at my location.
RadioShack has a $30 outdoor UHF antenna that's about 40 inches long and 25 inches high (assembled) - It will fit above most suspended ceilings. I have one set up in my basement (yes, below ground), pointed up at an angle and in the general direction of the TV transmitters. The converter sees about 20 stations with this antenna.
I use an old set of rabbit ears with a 300 ohm to cable adaptor. In my area I pick up 27 HDTV stations. My antenna is in my walk out basement close to the ceiling. Part of my good luck is that I am only about 2 to 3 miles away from 3 1000 ft TV/FM/Cell antennas. No need for cable here.
The TV signals are so powerful they interfere with the wireless car door locks under certain conditions.
