And digital? Meaning you get more then the 5 or so basic channels broadcast over the air?

I am running an old VOOM box for OTA. I get the all the digital broadcasts, FOX, WB, PBS, NBC, ABC, CBS in the Evansville, IN market. PBS, NBC and ABC come in HDTV as well. With digital you get mutiple station broadcasts. Ex., NBC, my channel 14, 14.1 is HD, 14.2 is Weather 24Hr, 14.3 is digital standard definition.

I live in a two-story. The antenna (model 4228) is about 5 feet higher that the chimney to which it is attached.

You could pick up any analog signals with a UHF tuner.

Hey Doug, thanks for the tips. I was not aware of that form factor for high-gain OTA antennas; I thought they were all still the big "boom" kind. I don't think I can sneak either one past the nazis in my HOA, but knowledge is power.

Do you have to fiddle with a motor to rotate that thing, or is it pretty much a Showtime Rotisserie (set it and forget it)?

With Evansville 45 miles away, all the stations are on one direction. I would use a rotor if other stations were closer.
