    I've got one of those Walmart $20 flat hd antenna and it just isn't doing the job. Some places it's give but I think I need a better amplified model.
    Anyone got recommendation?
    Also, anyone set up an outdoor version?

    Try the antenna for your FM radio, the frequencies are very close.

    it's not the antenna... even a old set of rabbit ears will work.... the problum is that the change to digital required the signal power be cut back....

    You need a high power signal booster (over 20db) to get a good signal on the truck...
