Thanks for the clarification. Not being an EI subscriber, I just assumed... .
You should be able to make do without an outside antenna. Rabbit ears will work, but you may have to adjust between channels as they're not all coming from the same location. OTOH, a Silver Sensor might work well. I have an old Rat Shack yagi that gets 'em all lying on the floor in the living room pointing roughly toward Southfield. Heck, I get Toledo with the same antenna on the floor of an upstairs bedroom. Benefit of being in a relatively flat state, I guess.
Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
