Currently using the first one. Now, due to my location I was not expecting to pick up a whole lot using an indoor antenna. But, managed to pick up 2-3 channels in one room of the house, and 8 channels in another. However, the initial 3 would break up and become unwatchable (but the picture would be great before breaking up), and while the 8 channels display the channel name. I am getting no picture. I just managed to get the 8 channels today though, and it has been very cloudy today.
Ultimately I believe I will need an outdoor antenna. But what I am trying to figure out is, before I even spend the money on the outdoor antenna set up, am I likely to pick up any channels and be able to watch them on a regular basis? Here is the results of my location at tvfool using an outdoor antenna mounted on a 40' pole.
Thing is, I am not certain what I am looking at so I can't determine what channels I can expect to receive. If I am looking at the table correctly where there are about 26 channels, 4 of them with a red background and the rest with a grey background. Reading the color key there, it says the red channels I can expect to pick up with a roof mounted antenna, the grey I would need to go to extreme measures (not sure what those are). Assuming though that on a clear day, I could pick up 8 channels with my current DIY antenna, can I possibly expect to get at least those 8 channels with the outdoor roof mounted antenna?
Sorry for the lengthy post, trying to include as much information as possible.
