Can someone provide an antenna FAQ sticky?


What's a Yagi look like?

What's a bowtie UHF look like?


I browsed a Home Theater magazine article the other night and read something about Yagi & Bowtie, and saw pictures, but don't remember. I think one was a half arrow shape and the other cross thatch.


What indoor antennas are available? Can a conventional analog TV UHF antenna be used with an HD tuner?


I checked the antennaweb site, but didn't see anything about Yagi or bowtie.

One poster here has done an excellent job of covering the basics.

To answer your questions briefly:


1) Go to: http://www.winegard.com/products/vhf...nt.html#pr9012


The first antenna at the top (the PR-9032) is a yagi-style. The second antenna (the PR-8800) is a bow-tie style.


2) There is no such thing as a "digital" antenna. A high quality UHF or UHF/VHF (depending on the stations broadcasting in your area) is all you need.


The Zenith Silver Senser antenna has gotten high marks as an indoor UHF antenna.
