    Default What about rabbit ears with a converter box?

    Will a rabbit-ears antenna receive signal over the digital converter and convert that signal to my tv?

    Oliver,

    If you're asking if you can use rabbit ears as your antenna with a converter box, the answer is yes.

    If you are asking if rabbit ears can be used without a converter box then no, because rabbit ears cannot convert the digital signal to analog for your tv. That's what the converter box does.

    Also depends on your definition of "Rabbit Ears" if it's just the 2 long antennas then those are mainly just for VHF signals, and most DTV channels are UHF. If you have a Rabbit Ears with a loop or bowtie in addition to the 2 long antennas then that would be better. Also most of the Rabbit Ears are mainly just good for about a 15 mile range from the transmit Antennas.
    But just about any existing analog antenna setup that you were using before the switch, if hooked to a converter box or TV made within the last year should pick up something.
