Goodbye Rabbit Ears?

I was surprised to read in today’s New York Times, in an article about the move to digital TV, a reference to “a public-service campaign that after Feb. 17 the rooftop antenna connected to [one’s] television would no longer function properly”. This is not in fact correct. When I purchased my current HDTV, I bought a new antenna that was supposed to be specific for HD/digital television reception. What I found was that it worked less well than the one I already had. It is the television itself that is the issue when it comes to digital reception, not the antenna.

  • r local PBS station had an hour long special on DTV in which the broadcast engineer told us that if a salesman tries to sell you a digital antenna, walk out – antennae receive RF signals, period.Also, the amplified antennae worked worse than the rabbit ears for me.
