Some examples of highly rated outdoor HDTV antennas include RCA's Yagi antenna, Mediasonic's HW-560AN antenna and AmazonBasics' amplified indoor/outdoor antenna. All three of these antennas support at least 1080i video and can receive video signals from 30 plus miles, and they include or can be purchased with mounting hardware. To connect any of these antennas, all you need is a standard coaxial cable.
DTV antennas aren't ideal in certain conditions. Some people may live in an area with large trees or mountains surrounding them, all of which can disrupt TV signals. In some cases, a person may live in too remote an area where there are no nearby. HDTV antennas work by receiving VHF and/or UHF signals from towers to broadcast live TV. VHF covers channels 2 to 13 and UHF 14 to 51. For this reason, it's important to find an antenna that can receive both UHF and VHF signals, providing a wider selection of channels. You don't have to buy a new DTV antenna to receive DTV signals. If an old antenna had strong reception for channels 2 to 51 in analog, it's likely to work for DTV. In fact, any broadcast antenna that can receive both UHF and VHF can broadcast DTV channels.
