I don't actually have the Silver Sensor, but I was under the impression it is strictly UHF ? So it will depend whether your local stations are broadcasting on UHF or VHF channels. If VHF, then the Silver Sensor is not the right antenna for you.
G1000 D-ILA, HTPC, Panamorph (soon I hope),
Dish 6000 (HBOHD,SHOHD,CBS,NBC,ABC,WB,FOX,UPN, KCET -- does it get any better ?)
Depending upon your distance, you may want to consider the channel master or Radio shack antennas. I am using a Radio Shack UHF only antenna, cost ~40 bucks and a Channel Master PreAmp and 100ft of RG6. Antenna in the attic, and I am 60+ miles from the transmitters and get all of the local channels with 75+ reception.
Terk antennas are much more expensive and from what Ive heard not worth the money.
I've seen that most people that have tried TERK antennas think they are a POS. And over priced.
If you are looking for a good relatively small amplified antenna,the Winegard GS-2000 SENSAR if very good. It can be mounted very high on an outdoor mast without guy wire because it is about 3'x 8" x4" in size and weighs about 3 pounds
Starsaur, Keep in mind that if you buy the AccessDTV card from www.digitalconnection.com (currently the only place that sells it, I THINK), it comes with a silver sensor antenna - widely regarded as one of the best HDTV antennae around.
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
Pictured below is the CM #4248 DIAMOND QUANTUM I consider it the best UHF tv antenna on the market today. It is priced right, has good gain (apx.14 db), is strong, has much less windload than a parabolic (so it won't pull down every winter) and has VHF feed-thru so you can easily combine the 4248 to any VHF antenna without couplers or joiners and run down one transmission line. The 4247 is a similar smaller antenna for suburban location
CM # 4248 80"LONG FRINGE UHF ANTENNA COST $47.49
NEED MORE GAIN ADD A PRE-AMP like a CM 7775 or Winegard AP4800
