Hello


Just though I would give a short review on two over the air indoor antennas. I have both the Megawave-1A and the Zenith Silver Sensor. MegaWave-1A cost around $70 and the Zenith SS cost $20 from buy.com. I have them hooked up to the Zenith 520 Recceiver and my HLN567W. I live about 5-10 miles from most of the broadcast towers.


There is no doubt that the Zentih SS outpreforms the MegaWave-1A I get a stronger signal and pick up signals that I couldn't with the MegaWave-1A. If you need an over the air Antenna, I recommend the Zenith Silver Sensor over the MegaWave - don't waste your money and don't listen to titantv.com's recommendation.

Titan-tv.com recommended the Megawave for my location probably because I am directly in the middle of two metropolitan areas (Baltimore and DC) from which I wish to receive DT signals. If I want to use a Silver Sensor, would I need two--one each to point in opposite directions?

The Silver Sensor is tremendously directional and tends not to receive signals from the "sides" or "back".

Terp Fan,


Do a search or post your question on the HDTV Local Info forum. They've had many threads on multi-directional antenna setups.

Will do. Sorry, I had done a search for the Megawave and ended up posting to this thread to see what Prof Dave thought. Didn't realize we were in the Rear Proj Units forum. Again, sorry.
