There are lots of external antennas out there. Dlink makes a nice 7db antenna that increases signal strength. Hawking has a few as well. You can walk into Radio Shack or Best Buy and get one… or search http://www.newegg.com and get one.

    Incredibly Good Indoor Antenna, July 28, 2005

    This review is from: Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna for Off-Air HDTV Reception (Electronics)
    Having spent a bundle acquiring a Sony LCD HDTV and upgrading our Dish service to include its limited set of HDTV channels, we were anxious to see what an Over-the-Air Antenna might add.

    In all, we tested 5, including the highly rated Zenith log periodic (about $40 at Sears), an amplified Samsung (about $99 at Best Buy), an outdoor Terk 32 (about $80 at Circuit City), our old roof mounted VHF/UHF antenna (circa 1985), and the amplified Terk HDTVa (about $50 at Radio Shack). The Terk HDTVa won hands down; no contest, blowing away the much touted Zenith.

    We live in the sparsely populated, low hill countryside of Western Massachuetts. The THDTVa effortlessly brings in between 20 and 30 analogue and digital (incl hdtv) channels broadcast most from 12 to 45 miles away, and some as far as 65+ miles away in Connecticut. Some digital OTA channels actually come in more sharply than some of the (Dish) satellite digital channels.

    This is definitely a keeper: a great value, gem of an antenna. So good, in fact, we are debating giving up our $50/month Dish service, putting $15 of that to Netflix to replace HBO, and banking the remaining $35.

    This review is from: Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna for Off-Air HDTV Reception (Electronics)
    I’m in SF Bay Area, about 30 miles from Sutro Tower. This was my first antenna and it worked out of the box for me. It is not perfect and I’m holding between 70 and 90% signal strength on all the majors with better reception than satellite. I can’t compare it to any others but to say “it doesn’t work” is insane. You won’t know until you try it. This is not an all or nothing deal. It will work great for some, not at all for others and anywhere in between.

    To check your specific situation, I recommend you try […] Click button on first page, enter your full address and you will get a report unique to your home about how/where your channels are broadcast, including a map showing exactly how you should point your antenna. In my case, all my required channels were “yellow” and all in the same compass direction. If you are very far from broadcast source or channels are coming from many different directions, it may not work. However, with good return policy, it can’t hurt to try.

    This review is from: Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna for Off-Air HDTV Reception (Electronics)

    I’m a first timer at getting OTA HDTV. This has been an experiment in progress for the past 5 weeks. I have gone through four antennas (they are all here as I write this) before finding something that’s satisfactory (rather than tolerable).

    I live around 25 miles from Manhattan, where the towers of most TV stations are located. I am also aware of the directional information from […], and have experimented accordingly with its effects on reception. My apartment’s windows all face north, while the signals all comes from southwest. I cannot get signals from where it comes from, and thus needed to get signals from deflections perhaps off nearby buildings and trees. It’s a very poor circumstance for over-the-air reception, maybe just slightly better than being underground. Signals are weak, and are affected by weather. Stormy and windy days have shown effects at disrupting signal reception.

    With this said, and without going into much detail, let’s talk about the antennas. Now all these antenna have been tested with the same equipment, setup, directional adjustments, location, etc. etc. and have been tested through good an foul weather, day and night, to observe differences.

    1.Terk HDTVa Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna for Off-Air HDTV Reception– After reading some rave reviews and high ratings at […], log periodic types (looks like a fishbone) seems to be the way to go. I got the Terk HDTVa first, thinking that the amplification and VHF antenna should nail my reception problems at the start. However, after more than two weeks of fidgeting around ad nauseam (directions, locations, amplifications, different devices, etc.), I only managed to pick up two ATSC channels’ signals, and even those don’t have strong enough signals to display anything. I thought maybe it’s just my poor location, and that I should probably give up on the attempt. The included in-line amplifier dongle doesn’t work at all. Powering it on makes no difference in signal strength readings, which hovered around 5-10%.

    It is well built, looks nice, good concepts, but it just didn’t work.

    2.Phlips PHDTV1 Philips PHDTV1 Digital HDTV-UHF Indoor Antenna– The venerated “silver sensor” which was previously sold under the Zenith brand also had great ratings and reviews. It’s in fact nearly legendary. I decided, in desperation, to try it out, even if it doesn’t have amplification. It seems all my local HD channels are in UHF anyway, so I won’t miss the VHF dipoles.

    The unit has startlingly poorer build quality compared to the Terk. It has paint bubbles, hairs and dusts trappings in the paint, sharp edged cheap plastics and much thinner metal blades that’s covered in oil and has some dings and bendings. I wasn’t impressed with the quality, and didn’t expect much from it as I set it up.

    To my surprise, it picked up 9 working channels (note: the terk got two channels’ signals, but they didn’t work) from the start, even if it’s randomly placed. It’s thrilling as it was the first time I saw OTA HDTV. After some adjustment and location experiments, I was able to receive 19 channels. However, not all of these channels work well given the same direction.

    The directionally sensitive antenna needs to be adjusted as I switch channels. e.g. NBC and CBS seems to work well in one direction, while ABC has its own favorite direction, which works also with FOX. I tried as best as possible to find a compromise point where everything works. I couldn’t. It just needs to be adjusted constantly.

    The transmission is often dogged by reception fluctuations. Signal quality tend to fluctuate quite a bit, especially affected by weather. That means the TV playback would get choppy at times, with its severity dependent on the direction I point the antenna at. I didn’t think fluctuating signals was a characteristic until I tried the latter two antennas later. I also found that I had to constantly play with the directional positioning to get a stable signal from each of the stations.

    It works, and I was impressed, but then in retrospect it could only be best described as a “tolerable” HDTV experience as I struggled for a smooth signal delivery.

    3.RCA ANT111 Basic Indoor Antenna– While shopping in stores, I saw this basic and classic RCA loop/dipole antenna for less than $[…]. I couldn’t resist the temptation to try it out, just for the heck of it. It is also a different type of antenna than the previous…

  4. actually in this one video this guy wrapped and internet cable around his cell phone and plugged it into the Ethernet port on his pc it made his signal longer and stronger and for some reason his phone appeared in the wireless on his pc.

  5. For most laptops there is no way to improve the antenna without disabling the Integrated wireless card and installing an external USB card with a better antenna attached sorry.
