    I can tell you that the Stellar Labs 30-2430 HDTV 80 Mile Deep Fringe Bowtie Television Antenna works GREAT! Just got one. I’m 65-70 miles north of NYC and getting some stations in from there. Not all yet but I need to reposition it a little here and there to get more. Maybe raise it up some more. Works great!

    I have to cut the cord, Time Warner is getting ridiculous with their price increases. It never ends with them.

    Winegard FL5500A is the best indoor antenna I’ve tried in Austin, TX. It is designed for UHF and VHF.
