See my above post, the one at 6:00
All indoor antennas pick up more or less depending not only on which room in the house, but where it is placed in the room and which direction you have it pointed. Go to the site I have in post above to find where the towers are in your area, and then at best it is just trial and error with almost any indoor antenna.

I have tried at least the 6 best reviewed indoor antennas I could find in several locations over the past 3-4 years. I currently am less than 10 miles from the broadcast towers and the best one I found only works from fair (20 out of 40+ channels) to pretty bad (4 out of 40) depending on which room it is in. I can get it working good by running 100' coax out the window and putting the antenna at the back of the property line. My advice, if any way possible, use a rooftop style antenna. They're relatively inexpensive and will save a lot of frustration trying to watch that great HD picture.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
