I found one of these in one of the trailers I bought flip and works just fine. Fuck cable. First off I donít really watch that much TV really. Itís mostly Internet without Internet Iíll probably kill myself. Just good high-speed Internet Netflix and Xbox live and of course YouTube and some twitch.

Without my gun hobby. I would cut off my own dick and let the rats eat it...

i have a strange 2 antenna hookup to 1 TV but it works great. it's strange because one is amplified and one is not. you'd think it'd work better with both amplified. my samsung tv has a great built in tuner. no name tv's are a pain in the ass with antenna's and crappy built in tuners

- two RCA flat black panels
- one amplified and one not
- splitters out to the TV

Default Antenna

I bought a rooftop antenna from Amazon that got up to a 50 mile range. I am about 25 miles from the local towers. I just put it in the attic and used my cable co's amplifier and works great on 5-6 tv's thru the splitter. I can pickup all of the local Dallas/Ft.Worth channels no problem.

I have since moved it onto the pole I already had on my chimney to see if I could get better reception. I can't tell the difference. In the attic was fine.

I will tell you the picture quality with a good signal will always beat cable or satellite signals. Those 2 are compressed. Over the air is not compressed and weather does not impact my signal at all. YMMV.
