I live in Harborcreek, near the lake, and was wondering what a good antenna would be for getting the Erie stations that are broadcast from up near peach street (according to antennaweb.org I should just need a "small multidirectional antenna"). I am hoping an indoor or attic mounted antenna will work. What do people in Erie use? Anyone in Harborcreek with good results?
I ended up going to radio shack and asking them which antenna's got returned the least. I also went to walmart and tried an RCA flat antenna and a Clearstream 2 antenna. Out of all of them the Radio Shack one "RadioShack Amplified HDTV Antenna" worked the best, it was also the cheapest. I was really surprised I get about 13 channels including some from Canada. The flat antenna from RCA worked 2nd best, and I could only get 2 channels on the Clearstream even though it was by far the most expensive of the antenna.
I couldn't get WICU/NBC (12.1) with any of the antenna's which I think is kind of weird considering I get WSEE and they appear to be from the same direction and same distance away.
iirc these are the channels I was able to get (6.1, 9.1, 9.2, 9.3,9.4,24.1,35.1,35.2,50.1,50.2,50.3,66.1) A couple of them don't come in all the time like the station from Canada and a station called Bounce, but I get ABC/CBS/Fox/CW so I am really happy this worked out.
I bought 2 hdhomerun's from amazon and hooked them up to my wireless network and I put Window's 8 with Media Center on an old laptop and am using that as a DVR and a program called PLEX to stream the recorded content to Roku's on the other TV's. I was really afraid it wasn't going to work out but so far everything looks to be working!
Now I just have to return all my cable boxes and sell my hdhomerun prime.
I will get the model number off the box tomorrow or this weekend, unfortunately I am not able to get it at the moment. The antenna is capable of getting VHF it has a UHF loop and 2 telescoping rabbit ears for VHF, that being said however, I have not messed with them to try and get any vhf channels. The antenna is supposed to be omni-directional iirc but I have to situate it pointing in one pretty specific direction to get any decent signals.
Trying to cut the cord on high priced tv. Our neighbor out here in the woods in North Springfield said he had an antenna & when it turned into digital his antenna stopped working. We wanted to try getting an antenna but he said don't waist your money it will not work. Does anybody know what kind of antenna will work ?.
This is the information on the Antenna I have. I bought it from Radioshack.
Radioshack Amplified HDTV Antenna
Cat. No: 1500254
Neither the antenna or the box it came have any other model information.
If you search on Radio Shacks website for 1500254 you will find it.
I can't guarantee it will work the best for anyone else but of the 3 antenna I tried, it worked the best for me. It is powered and I need to turn the amplifier all the way up.
Hope this helps someone else.
