If you select a flat panel antenna, the best performers are reportedly the Mohu Leaf, Walltenna, Winegard Flatwave, or HD-Blade. But these are optimized for UHF and may not necessarily work for certain VHF signals if needed. In that case, the Terk HDTVa adds rabbit ears in addition to the UHF element, which may perform better for the VHF signals.
How do these antennas compare? I prefer the style of the HD-Blade or Terk FDTV since I like an antenna that's almost flat but would consider the HDTV. Thanks for your help.
I haven't used the Terk FDTV, but it is an interesting antenna. I like its size. It weighs over 3 pounds, so it might be able to bend an RG 6 cable without a lot of problems. A comparison between the FDTV and a Silver Sensor is something I'd like to see. Thanks for posting.
ive owned both Terks HDTVA and FDTV,and the HDTVA outperforms the FDTV by a large margin.i found the HDTVA is more sensitive direction wise,but once you;ve found your locations sweetspot,you shouldnt have to move it for optimal reception.i tried the FDTV vertically,horizontally,with an amp,and it still couldnt match the performance of the HDTVA.im still using it to this day.
The HDTVa is definitely the better choice for indoor antenna. Also HDTVi is good if amp is not needed. The Terk flat panels are overpriced and poor performers. But if you really want to try a flat panel, reportedly the Mohu Leaf, Walltenna, Winegard Flatwave, or HD-Blade are better choices.
