Non powered 4 bay 80 mile antenna. I'm always willing to give an under $20.00 antenna a try.

Thanks, this seems like a good deal - it will help get me off my butt to investigate what OTA channels I can get so I can possibly cut the cord. Planning to mount this in the attic. FYI, http://antennaweb.org/ is a good site to check for seeing the range and direction of nearby TV broadcast towers.

Looks like monoprice is running a Presidents' Day special, $5 off $25+ with promo code 5PRES. Also, I noticed that the free shipping for the antenna made the whole order ship free when I added some headphones to get over the $25.

And FYI, the cashback at TCB is 2%. Dunno if it will stack.

Actually different versions of sling as a cable mirroring device go back at least ten years.

Why waste the time to criticize this?

for hi-VHF elevation is key in any urban jungle,
so if you are not able to put this on your roof, don't bother.

up to 20 miles from most major station towers:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DFTGR4

20-40 miles from most major station towers;
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DFTGRY

such aerials are actually 2 antenna in one,
the back with the wide parallel sticks is hi-VHF
while the front with the V reflector is a UHF yagi.

I live under 10 miles (Queens NY) from towers
so I got the smaller one, but I had to mount it
on an 8 story high apt roof to reliably get >80% signal
because there are hills and buildings in the way.

8 bay UHF can also work as high VHF too - because;
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000FVVKQM
they include those wide dipoles between bowties,
these are good for over 20 miles not windy areas,
like a 2-3fl attic or roof with a lot of tall trees around.

do NOT buy antenna with wide dipoles like this;
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DFS4BI
those pick up LOW-vhf which nobody needs anymore.
low-vhf will eventually be full of oddball signal projects
that may eventually create interference on your tv.

this is good if you can make a hole in your wall.
Most apartment don't let you do that.

Long Range antenna usually is better than Indoor Amplified antenna.

I've used dual bay bowties like this
sadly they are only good for UHF,
so new york'ers should stay away,
since your 7, 11, 13 are still hi-VHF.

It's​ either way. Lots of people set them up in attics. I've always had good coverage with the bowtie style. I've used them indoors just sitting behind the set before, it can sit in a window or be hung from the ceiling. I will be using mine outdoors.

1) How do I know if the channels I can pick up are UHF or VHF?

**EDIT: To receive DTV signals from all stations in the area, your antenna needs to be able to receive both VHF channels (channels 2-13) and UHF channels (channels 14-83)

2) What antenna would be good for both UHF and VHF? That way I don't miss any.

I wholly agree. Surprised such things are not advertised more often as such.

Yeah, I keep a 8ft length of coaxial in the truck just for that​ sort of thing, or sometimes we want tv at the fish camp.

I'm in an apartment - would this be ok indoors? I have a powered 30 mile range antenna but not picking up all of the stations clearly. Some of them are "staticy"

FYI I bought a similar antenna and put it in the attic. It didt pick up crap. Moved it outside and boom getting 20 plus channels.
