I currently have a temporary OTA antenna (Silver Sensor) hooked up outside and I am getting a ok signal but it is fluctuating a lot. I was wondering a preamp would remedy this situation. Are there any other antennas worth trying. I have heard some good things about the Silver Sensor. Right now I have this antenna about 8 feet off the ground as a temporary solution. I was thinking about putting it in the attic, but thought that this might not be a bad solution either? Any thought on given up some height to have the antenna on the outside?


Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. This is for all digital signals so would a preamp help stabilize the signal? I get all the HD channels I need so from the perspective I am lucky. You help would be greatly appreciated.

PS: I think that the signal strength fluctuations are normal: I get them too, and it may be atmospheric or broadcaster-related...
