Help me. I am totally confused. I have a brother who lives in Brooklyn and cannot deal with any outside antenna. He needs a simple to install antenna that will pick up Hdtv signals and also if possible VHF and UHF signals. He has an elevated train in front of his house and a seven story school approximately 250 feet from his house. I was told to get him a Winegard SS3000 antenna. Is that correct? What about the silver sensor or the Terk HDtvi or HDtva antennas. He complained last year when I bought him a new Sharp Aquos LCD Tv that his reception was not as good as on his 30 year old rabbit ears TV. He wants to use HDTV. I am getting him the HDTV OTA receiver and need an antenna. What is the best solution.

There is no best antenna, every situation is somewhat unique, from the description you gave his is very unique, this may be a situation of trial and error, unless someone else has a similar situation. Try the SS or if you can find a R/S double bow tie!
As a last resort if HD stations are available through cable!!
Again this is a last resort.
Good luck with it.
