that can really reject multi-path. The only candidate for that is a silver sensor but I cannot for the life of me find them in stores around here. Best buy is out and I don't order online....maybe something new will come out after june. Or I can keep looking around.
For the heck of it I bought one of those bat antennas for $12 just to add to my collection and to try out after the transition. Haha.
A narrow beamwidth suppresses multipath from buildings/bridges
between the desired transmitter and your location.
To reduce multipath, you also need high Front/Back Ratio, since worst multipath
"usually" comes in from rear reflections. Most indoor antennas do neither.....
The best you can hope for is an indoor antenna which has a significant NULL
that can be directed until it minimizes the multipath signal...without also
nulling out the desired signal, such as would happen with a typical UHF loop.
Hence the SilverSensor, Terk Klone and R-S UFO are good indoor performers.
The ClearStream C1C comes with a reflector which is MANDATORY in order
to provide a reasonable Front/Back Ratio...when you remove it for indoor use,
there is ZERO suppression of multipath coming from the rearward direction...
And it has a very wide beamwidth....enough said....
As the economy draws further down, stores are severely cutting back inventory....
If you don't figure out how to order off the internet, your options will continue to shrink.....
Ordering off the internet from REPUTABLE dealers can be just as safe as giving
your credit card to the minimum wage geeks at BestBuy....either can steal the number....
I have a separate credit card with a fairly low max limit I only use for internet,
so even if it gets messed up my primary card is unaffected.
