If anyone lives in an area where antenna web says you need a large directional outdoor antenna, you may not need it. I live in slippery rock PA. 40 miles from the nearest signal and it is in the middle of no where. I tried all different types of antenna, powered and non. Finally I tried the Zenith Silver Sensor. It looks like it would have no chance at pickking up any signal at first glance out of the box, but the antenna is amazing. I recieve all my hd channels and this antenna is not even powered. I got it at best buy for 42 dollars but you can order it on line for 20. Give it a try and let me know if it helps you.
