Consider this 2-deals-in-1. Not only do your get a low profile antenna for 30 bucks, but once installed (no roof climbing required) you’ll be enjoying free HD content from your local broadcasters (assuming you’re near some towers).
A while back we discussed the benefits of over-the-air HDTV (did I mention it’s free?) and just yesterday we offered 10 antennas that’ll get ‘er done.
Today we sweeten the package with a great price on Jenson’s TV-931 Low Profile UHF Amplified Antenna that not only looks nice, but is also a really cheap way to test the HD waters if you haven’t already.
It has adjustable/retractable 42-inch VHF dipoles that rotate and tilt to improve reception of channels 2 to 13. Also, a low-noise amplifier with Variable Gain Control provides 15 dB of amplification to optimize picture quality. It even has non-scuff pads on the bottom so as to keep your beautiful TV nice and shiny.
Before buying, however, I would strongly suggest hitting www.antennaweb.org and checking out their antenna recommendations based on your location. While an indoor unit like this one may be enough for starters, your address may dictate a stronger, possibly outdoor-mounted model. And what do you know, antennaweb.org is free too. That makes it a 3-fer.
