If you missed the free promo from April 15th, you can still get the well rated Channelmaster FLATenna for $4 shipped

http://www.channelmaster.com/Flat...4001hd.htm

use code FREEDOM during checkout $10 - $6 = $4 shipped

use free shipping option

paypal option available

white or black

note these kinds of antennas are typically good for local channels only, you won't get out of town but for $4 it's a handy option to have - very similar to the Mohu Leaf
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Most people are not aware that there are multiple ranges of frequencies for TV broadcasts, VHF-low (channels 2-6) 54-88MHz, VHF-high (channels 7-13) 174-216MHz, and UHF (channels 14-51) 470-698 MHz. The VHF frequencies are long wave, meaning they require a long antenna to pick them up. If you've seen a rooftop antenna and noticed long aluminum arms at the back end of the antenna, that get longer as you go further back, they are the VHF elements. I have a Winegard flatwave antenna similar to this one, that gets channels 8 and up, but channels 8-13 are difficult to receive and require moving the antenna for each channel, everything above channel 13 is fairly easy to get without moving the antenna. Also, there are real frequencies (RF) and virtual frequencies (VF), which means that if a station originally broadcast on VHF channel 3 when broadcasts were analog, but after the digital transition they switched to UHF channel 34 but they want to keep the original channel number, they use VF channel 3 so that is what is displayed on your TV, even though they are not really broadcasting on channel 3 anymore. Nearly all TV stations moved up to UHF when switching to digital, but not all, and if your market still has VHF broadcasts, you may have difficulty receiving them with these square antennas, if you can get them at all. Check all the channels in your area here: TVFool.com [tvfool.com], and if any of the channels you are interested in viewing are between RF 2 and RF 6, consider another antenna. You might have to get a rabbit ear antenna one of the big outdoor antennas, depending on how far away from the broadcast towers you are.

There is no difference in antennas for digital vs. analog transmissions. They operate on the same frequencies, only the signal encoding has changed. The old rabbit ears and giant rooftop antennas still work just fine. Your TV's tuner is what changed to decode the digital signal.

If you've never used an antenna before, you can not get cable stations using an antenna, only broadcast TV stations [wikipedia.org], ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, ION, NBC and PBS are the major networks and most broadcast subchannels in addition to the main channel which is usually another network like Antenna TV, Bounce, Comet, Cozi, Decades, Escape, Get TV, Grit, Justice Network, Laff TV, Live Well, Me TV, MyNet, Qubo, This TV, Tuff TV, etc..

Probably would have got this one if I didn't just buy a Mohu Leaf. Only spent like $10 for it with the $40 Groupon deal though.

Ah, heck. $4 why not. The dimensions seem to be 9 x 0.2 x 13 inches so it should be a decent size.

Amazon link [amazon.com] for comparison
