New HD Antenna Arrives

October 12, 2007 at 10:44 pm Leave a comment

Today, I took delivery of a model DB4 antenna from http://antennasdirect.com/.  I was a bit skeptical of the antenna design when I first saw it, but had read some good things about it elsewhere.  Of course, Murphy’s Law kicked in.  Tonight, while reading up a bit on antennas, I ran across this website that sells a very similar antenna for about 1/2 the price that I paid (when you include shipping).

I assembled it (there’s nothing to it) and scurried up the tower behind my home to put it a bit below the Stealthtenna that I have.  Within about 20 minutes, I had it installed.

The picture quality?  Well, it is a UHF antenna, but I had read that it picked up the upper VHF channels fairly well.  In reality, the signal strength that it gets for channels 10 and 13 (the two local stations that broadcast HD on VHF) come in around 63% signal strength, but when watching the live stream, it looks fine.  I’ll have to give it about a week or two to see for sure, but it looks like we may have a winner.
