I'm not sure where you are based on your discription but here is an approximate tvfool. TV Fool You may get by with an indoor antenna. If not a small VHF/UHF outdoor antenna pointed at about 130 degrees magnetic will get you great reception. As far as channels are concerned. Vegas TV Stations

Most houses in Vegas are stucco - they have wire mesh under the stucco.

I'd really try to get your antenna outside. All transmitters are located on Black Mountain in Henderson, you should just need a small antenna, like the RCA ANT-751
rca ant751 - Google Search

The big problem is going to be KSNV-DT, NBC - channel 3 (RF channel 2) being low VHF.

Mr Pogi,

Do you think if he used a 'modern' indoor antenna that also has traditional 'rabbit ears' \/ he could receive RF channel 2?

The problem would be the metal mesh in most stucco houses common to the deserts.

If it is most any other construction, it should be okay.
