RE: Wireless antennas

OTA TV signals are line of sight, so it could depend on several factors such as where your TV is located in relation to the direction the TV signals come from, and your houses construction materials. I live in Florida and have a 2 year old house with newer building standards, which in Florida means all my windows are double panes and have a coating on them to reflect sun rays out, which also effectively blocks cell phone signals and TV signals, and I have a foil like barrier in my attic that keeps the attic cooler but also blocks signals, and stucco over block walls to boot. So even though my TV is on the same side of the house the TV signals come from, and being a relatively short distance from the TV towers, I had to put my antennae outside on a 4x4 post. if you do this or mount it to your house make sure you ground it, especially if you live where I do (the lightning strike capital of the world).
