Hello and thank you for the question.



Are you looking for a specific recommendation for an Antenna?

If so, are you looking for the best outdoor antenna, or the best indoor antenna?


Do you have a budget in mind?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.

The residence is in Zip Code 03844. Assume a cost of $250 and less. Would rather have an indoor one HDTV. Looking for best recommended.

Expert:  Aric replied 5 months ago.

Thank you for the reply Jimmy. The best quality for reception, etc. would be an outdoor antenna without exception. However if you're limited to having the antenna indoor, you want it to be mounted as high as possible, and also near a window for the best reception. The unit at the link below would be the best Indoor HDTV OTA antenna based on my experience in the field:

If you are somehow able to use an Outdoor antenna, the quality of reception, and the number of channels you will receive improves dramatically. In this case, I would recommend the following unit to be mounted on the roof of your home if possible:
