I have seen many people note the Radio Shack bowtie ant., and I wonder if I need to install an outdoor ant.? Can I just use my RCA ant. that I have been using for years? I receive fair reception for my local channels here in Dallas. I assume that you just pull down the HDTV locals and then tune them in digitally with your set-top box.
From some of the reviews of Terk antennas, you might be better off with a wooden coat hanger. At the very least they are way too expensive. If that $30 RCA is already installed, give it a try before you start spending money on other things, if it worked for analog, it will certainly work for digital.
I gotcha fellas. So if I live in an area that has strong power signals, a piece of tin foil would do. If you live in the sticks with a low power station far away, you may need a serious ant.? Correct me if I am wrong!
