RCA outdoor antennas and accessories were 50% off at my nearest Lowes this week, and I suspect that the clearance is chain wide, but it appears to be B&M only. I bought the RCA programmable antenna rotator (item #13593) in store three days ago for $38.48, which is about half what Amazon or other dealers sell this rotor. The RCA antenna wall mount was also half off the regular price of $6.56. Went to pick up rotor wire last night and when I checked their shelves, all these clearance items had been removed and the space was restocked with other merchandise. Called another Lowes (Marietta, OH) and learned that their antennas, rotors, and a few other accessories were also 1/2 price, but the rotor wire is not.This Lowes (S. Parkersburg WV) has not restocked any outdoor antennas, so I'm unsure if this is just clearance on RCA stuff, or that they are discontinuing all outdoor antennas and accessories. If you enter this item number or model number (VH126N) on the Lowes website, you get the item description and picture of the RCA rotor, but the title of this and most other items are all listed as an "Outdoor Digital HDTV VHF UHF Yagi Antenna" for some reason, so the confusion may arise from their discontinuation of RCA stock. Other RCA accessories such as RG-6 coax and connectors are not part of the clearance. Anyone out there who is fed up with their cable or satellite bill and wants to make the move to an antenna for broadcast TV might still be able to get in on this deal at their local Lowes.

Maybe no need for you... but my closest station is is over 20 miles away. The next few closest stations are over 30 miles. The other eighteen channels are 50 to 70 miles. Add hilly terrain to this problem (I'm in rural WV) and you can forget buying a traditional antenna like the cm-2016 with a manufacturer rating of 35 miles. I went with the DB8 and can receive stations within its 70 mile radius claim, but you need a safecracker's touch to aim it at the fringe stations. WIth digital TV, it's usually all or nothing. So instead of watching that snowy picture that rural TV viewers got accustomed with in the past with analog TV, it's a blank screen with the message "signal too weak". There's nothing due east or west of me, but the rest of my receivable stations are within a 120 degree arc north, or a 100 degree arc south. Regardless of claims, nobody out there has a omnidirectional antenna that is capable of receiving signals spread over an area like that. Most people in my situation have given up on antenna reception unless they want to settle for a small fraction of the available channels... or unless they want to turn their antenna manually. That takes all of the fun out of channel surfing.
