I have a question and it may seem like a weird one to ask. But I am on a budget for my kids and I. I have a vizio 37" hd 3d tv. I don't have cable,sat. I can not afford it.

I got a small indoor antenna and thru antennta web I got 6 digital channels, 4 PBS stations, me tv,wirt-13(ABC) affiliate from hibbing, Mn. But I looked at the chart with the fox,NBC,CBS they are colored blue. It says I need a medium indoor antenna with a power amp. But I live in a apt building so I can't have an outdoor antenna. I am on a budget and need some help, advice,on good antennas that people use. The NBC afilliate tower is in the town I live in. The fox is suppose to be on a analog. I live in Chisholm, Mn and my zip is 55719. Thanks, Jack.

You came to the right place. :thumb: My first reaction is, a lot of people (myself included) use small outdoor antennas inside an apartment with excellent results. Also, be aware that if you have any kind of outdoor area, like a patio, the apt. mngr can't keep you from putting an antenna there.

RF reception is all about line-of-sight to the transmitters, so we need even more precise information to be of much help. Please read the first post by SWHouston here: http://www.dtvusaforum.com/dtv-hdtv...n/18697-getting-started-over-air-tv-faqs.html Then read these two posts: http://www.dtvusaforum.com/dtv-hdtv...cussion/18368-how-ask-dtv-reception-help.html

Don't go to antennaweb.org, the experts have learned TVFool is far more accurate. So use the detailed instructions from SWHouston, then post the link to your report in this thread. Also let us know if you have any windows in the direction of the transmitters towards the top of the TV Fool Report. We may ask some follow up questions. Nobody makes a dime off this service.
