Since none of the indoor antennas work other than getting NBC HD (i'm about 15 miles due west from the towers in Atlanta - i can only pick up NBC with a RadioShack bowtie, but it looks great!)....I am planning on getting the $100 high range Channel Master antenna from Lowe's (would i need an amplifyer?)


Anyway, this is my first house, it's brand new, and i know i would screw something up if i tried to do it all myself. How easy is it to do an attic antenna installation, run the wires properly through thewalls, etc? I can't even see where the wires would go down in my attic because of all the insulation!


any help apprecaited!!

I guess it depends how desperate you are and how much money you have.


I have an attic antenna, and when it dies I will not be going up to repair it, now that I have outdoor antennas.


Attics are too hot, especially in the summer, and I never want to get covered in fiberglas again.


Your main problem may be that the installers may not want to go up there either, and will be reluctant also because it may not get you that much more signal than you already have.


TV antennas are meant to be outdoors. My attic antenna loses 5 db of signal vs the same antenna outside.
