Highest Rated HDTV antenna
Jim Hill published:
Probably a stupid (and frequently-asked) concern, but I'm maybe not an RF
professional therefore right here goes:
I got myself a home this past year with a roof-mounted antenna. We left it in
spot and even though We have satellite service. Given that I taken the HD
leap, I'd like to test the local HDOTA products - but after
taking that dive i truly wouldn't like to spring for an all-new 21st
century gee-wow antenna if one-up on the roof will suffice. Do We
require an innovative new antenna especially made for HDOTA broadcasting?

You can find VHF (chan 2 thru 13) & UHF Antennas (Chan 14 thru 69)
There's also combo Antennas which do both VHF & UHF 'frequencies'...
VHF antennas are huge, UHF antennas smaller, Combos biggest.
Receiving Analog or Digital/HD Chans tends to make no huge difference
to an antenna...
Many Digital/HD networks are on UHF (14 thru 69)...
THese UHF antennas are generally Yagi or 4 Bay Bow Ties..
at $25 a pop from Channel Master or WineGard dealers
HD usually uses RG-6 Antenna cable ... not RG-59... !
