    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.

    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.

    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.

    Zenith Silver Sensor

    Have you tried the Zenith Silver Sensor? This thing is amazing! Mine can pick up channels over 60 miles away. You can get one for around $40.

    Although a very nice indoor antenna, be very carefull, know your area needs. It is directional and ONLY UHF.

    I know a few people using them in attics in metro areas. But I've never seen something like you have setup there. That picture is classic!!!

    I got the same issue in Detrioit just because im too scared to go on my roof at my new house.

    Im considering mounting a square shooter in the attic and using it for digital only.
