All about TV reception - Cut the cable!

HD Digital UHF VHF

I just bought a new fancy "Smart" TV. It has all the latest digital & HD qualities.

Wow. To cut the cable I need an outdoor antenna. Wait- I have one from years ago to receive local channels. Do I need to buy a new fancy one for HD?

The answer is NO!

As all ham radio operators know, an antenna just receives any signals in the range of the antenna and in the spectrum of the antenna. Example: rabbit ears will not receive a signal from 100 miles away.

It is the receiver that translates the signal into whatever it is whether audio or video or otherwise. so alll you need is an antenna with enough gain to get the available signals.

Here are a couple of articles that help clear it up.
