Thanks very much for the info. Just a few questions....
--I will definitely check out the amplified Winegard at Costco...from what I can tell on the Winegard website, it looks like the latest amped flatwave model is the 5500A--is that the one you mean? (I think Costco calls it the 5500C.)
--If that doesn't work, is there a reason you suggest the Terk HDTVa from Fry's or HHG, vs. Amazon? I only ask because I can't seem to find it on those sites, Amazon is selling it for about $37, and I'm a Prime member so get free 2-day shipping (at least from them to me).
--Finally, I think the Leaf or Flatwave or omnidirectional, and the Terk HDTVa is directional....it looks like all the channels I want are coming from one direction which could make a directional work without constant fiddling. I just wonder about how to place something a little bulkier like that if it doesn't work well sitting on top of my TV. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks again for the help.
