The Return Of The Old Fashion Antenna

Apr 12, 2008
Last year, my husband and I were having a jog around the neighborhood. As we always do, we talked about all the houses and what we like and don't like about each one.

Even though we see the same houses each time we take a stroll, we sometimes see something new to talk about. During a particular walk, we saw something intriguing on top of one of the neighbors' roof. It was an antenna and it looked similar to one of those old-fashioned antennas everyone used to use instead of getting Satellite.

The difference was that it was much smaller than the old-fashioned ones. I was speculative to why they had it because I thought just about either everyone had cable, satellite or an inside rabbit ears. A few days afterward, I was out in my yard washing the car and that identical person happened to walk by the house.

I waved and then decided to approach him. I asked him that I had noticed the new antenna on his roof. He told me that it was an HD antenna. Then he let me know that he found out you can post it on your roof and it will pick up HD signals just like the Satellite provider sends out.

The only difference is that you get clearer pictures and you don't have to pay per month for it like you do with satellite. I thought it was absorbing and later that evening, I told my hubby what the neighbour said. My husband said that it likely doesn't come in crystal clear when there is a bad storm or utmost winds.

I was wondering about that because why would he want an HD signal that was not consistent. I went on the Cyberspace and found out that numerous of the antennas are powerful enough to maintain their HD signals even in storms.

The cost of them was not really much money either and we would pay for it in a few months time in the amount that we pay monthly to the satellite co.. I ran it by my spouse and then bought it. Now, we also have an antenna on our roof and it truly is wonderful to get HD channels without relying on the cable company's monthly fee.

I saw my neighbour several days later after I put up the antenna and he noticed. He was happy that he was able to let me know about it and asked if I was happy. I let him know that I was thrilled, appreciated the information and the surplus savings each period!
