    Late to the conversation but we have been using OTA TV for years. Once the new Digital TV arrived, it was a great improvement. More stations and great reception. The 2 drawbacks were worse disturbance when the reception was poor, like on a windy day, and we lost PBS. Still don't have PBS, but recently got "ME TV" that plays many of the old shows.

    For an antenna, we got a special Digital Antenna that is designed to reach 50 miles. We only have it on top of the TV. I could get a lot better reception if I went to an Outdoor Antenna, but I am concerned about Lightening. We can have some pretty powerful storms around here.

    I had space under a deck to put my antenna.
    When I was using the indoor antenna, it would take just a little movement to get it out of whack.
