High Definition Antenna's

What is that in my attic... Is that an antenna? I decided to install my DB4 antenna in my attic instead of on the roof. Installing it on the roof would have been challenging and more expensive; and given the proper sized antenna and proximity to the station there is no disadvantage of taking this shortcut. All that is needed is a proper mount to attach the antenna to a rafter, etc and then running the coax down to the rear equipment room and into a TV card in my home theater PC. A simple DIY task that both saves you money and gives you access to free high definition, broadcast TV!

One of the best resources for antenna selection can be found at AntennaWeb. Here you can find more information about the size and type of antenna your installation will require, the distance you are from the broadcast signal, and the proper orientation for your antenna installation.
Pictured below is the DB4, a large multi-directional UHF HDTV Antenna. With an approximate 13.7 dB gain, it is one of the strongest multi-directional antennas available and performs consistently across the entire UHF spectrum. Even when installed in my attic, this antenna can reach stations 25+ miles away.
