Strongest Indoor HD Antenna?
Hey everybody. I have a bit of a problem. I currently have a Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified HD Antenna, but I can't pick up WISH TV for whatever reason. I can get WRTV (ABC), WLFI (CBS), WTHR (NBC), WXIN (FOX), WNDY (UPN), WTTV (WB), WIPB (PBS) and WFYI (PBS).
I would just prefer to get my main CBS affiliate, so I was wondering if there are any antennas (preferably indoors) stronger than a Terk HDTVa? I've heard reviews that say it's one of the much better indoor HD antennas. I suppose I could just suffice with a stronger indoor antenna if it's only in analog if all else fails.
Also, if there is a cheap high power smaller outdoor antenna that would work better than the Terk HDTVa, I may consider that as well. Budget is $100, preferably a bit cheaper.
Anybody with any ideas, it would be much appreciated. Thanks guys.

I know someone using a CM4228 indoors.
What heading are you aiming for?
Any reason you can't buy the correct outdoor antenna?
Your towers are all over the map, heading and distance wise, and you have at least one digital channel that is VHF HIGH; and that is CBS.
so ya wish you can get wish.
wish-dt is about 40 miles away, transmits at low power 19.5 kw and is a stretch for indoor antennas.
Even though it does not answer the reception problem, I feel compelled to again point out the fact that there is no such thing as a HD antenna. Only UHF, VHF & combo type antennas. Anyone who hypes their product as an HD antenna is only taking advantage of consumer ignorance.
The strongest "indoor" antenna I know of is the DB2 from antennasdirect.com. It can be used indoors (it's small enough), attic and outdoors and it's multi-directional.
