I use that for a TV-FM antenna now in the attic, doesn't match perfect, but works good enough.
How many stations you getting at home ?
Don't know how much trouble I am willing to go through for this. In my house
I get satellite radio through Dish network. Just about to add a new head unit to my truck
and went ahead and got a hd tuner built in it. Not enough space in the S-10 for the two
extra boxes to add on Sirius satellite to the truck and I DON'T LIKE HAVING TO RUN
the antenna wire to the exterior so HD Radio will have to do for the truck. Console already has amps
and etc from my stereo setup so really nowhere to put the sat stuff. I do record
Sirius on cds to listen to also. Altho my wife's van has Sat radio built in and I love it...it
just doesn't fit in the small S-10 .BaSEMENT HAS SAT radio and so I am unwilling to bust into walls
to run a attic antenna for HD..................if I can pick up a few channels with a cheap dipole FM antenna
then I will buy the HD receiver......if not probably pass.
Smithville....prob 30 miles from downtown and basement on top of that.
Get a few FM channels...think any HD channels will come through ?
