Television Antenna

Postby hurleyjd » Fri Feb 16, 2018 8:38 am

Any one here bought and installed one of the long range cheap antennas from Amazon. If so did it work for you. A lot of the reviews spoke highly by a large percent with a small percent posting as not acceptable.

I got this at Wal-Mart for $30.

It is amplified. Works great. 40 stations.

It all depends on how far away and line of sight.

Yup. That's what we use. It's around $100 for a 90 mile range. They work good if you have stations that close.

You can get them at Best Buy and other places also.

I am not ashamed of watching those shows. I should have said that I am ashamed to be sitting in front of the TV. I would rather be out working. But this winter has been a 'sit in the house' winter.
