I am getting ready to cancel my cable, and go to OTA + HTPC. Already have the HTPC part pretty well figured out (been using it for a year), but I'm ready to step it up to the next level.
Here is my tv fool report: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...b7c8a7ad77cf44
I'm looking for a good antenna that will let me NBC/ABC/Fox/CBS (and I guess CW, but don't really care about it). Being in tornado alley, my wife has a firm requirement that we get something "weather proof", for at least a good of reception as possible during bad weather (don't worry, she has realistic expections).
I plan on mounting the antenna in my attic (approx 15' above ground level), so appearance and size (within reason of course) is no issue. We live in a new subdivision, so no trees anywhere within 500' of the house, also all the houses are single story, so good LOS in all directions. One of the advantages of living on the planes I suppose.
The antenna I've been looking at is Antennas Direct DB2, Multidirectional HDTV Antenna.
Does it look like it would suit my needs reasonably well? Or is there something better? I'm on a budget, but since I will be dropping $100 a month off my expenses from ditching cable tv, I can justify spending some.
Thanks in advance for the help!
