Agreed. Though I would use the BIG flower pots or just a 5 gallon bucket.

I like the antennacraft u4000 outdoor antenna (about $35 and comes with a 3 ft. mast and 75 ohm transformer from solidsignal.com). Tom Tally ch.9 chief engineer was so impressed with this antenna they installed one on their tower mast behind their studios. Since its an apt. building do the flower pot trick to keep the landlord away. Buy a flower pot and pour a little concrete in the bottom (don't do this on the balcony) to secure the mast (add dirt and flowers if desired). Then mount this very small flat antenna (less than 3ft x 4ft) to the mast. >>> (test the antenna before pouring the concrete to make sure it works)<<< With flower pot mounting you can move the antenna pot towards dayton if you want to watch alternative football games on dayton ch7 cbs or fox45. Radio shack sells a flat piece of coax for around $10 that allows windows or door pass thru so you don't have to drill any holes to feed the wire into your living area. Total cost less than $60 if you include the rg6 antenna wire.
