Well tonight i bought a RCA cheap O antenna just for kicks to see if it worked better than my 50.00 and 30.00 terk antenna's. Well it doesnt look real cool but it brings everything in, works great and its non powered. i live in a 1940's house so everything looks old anyways, LOL doors,window frames, base boards so why not a black rca metal antenna ?? Well when people come over for movies or what not i will just push the antenna;s down, LOL
anyways they work and k-mart had it on sale for $7.99 down from about $15.00 so i even got a good deal. well that saved me about 100.00 bucks buying a used receiver or antenna. Thanks for whoever told me to try the RCA rabbit ear type antenna.

    Thats the thing that counts........it works....you know if you have an attic above,you could stick that thing up there.Just run the wires down inside the wall and plate it behind your equipment.Then you won't have to look at it.

    Hello Faster This is StuffMD...I am the RCA antenna suggestion guy...I am glad it worked out for you....I am so pissed in all the money I spent on these so called trechnology antennas to get crappy reception.Terk especially...I bought the RCA for tv one day and read it it also works on FM as well and couldn't believe the reception difference....Next step if you have an entertainment center, my unit had holes to hang the unit..it will work behind the center .....................just takes a little more adjusting....
    Happy Stereo...Peace, StuffMD
