Over the Air Programming Part II

With the analog cut off date coming soon, many people are purchasing converter boxes and brand new digital televisions. I decided to give you a list of my personal favorite antennas and converter boxes. I have found that these devices work very well in metropolitan areas. The first item that I found to be very useful is the RCA ANT 1050 antenna. It is a ultra flat plastic antenna that can be hidden anywhere. It has great reception and only costs 15 dollars. The only downside to the antenna is that you have to assemble it.

As far as converter boxes are concerned, the RCA DTA800 is a great buy. You can find this converter box at Wal-Mart for 49.99. The box is very easy to setup. One feature that I loved about the box is that gives you a description of the program that you are watching. It provides the title of the program and gives a brief synopsis of the program. The DTA800 also gives you a schedule of shows that will be appearing on whatever channel you are watching. A signal meter also provides the user with on screen signal strength. The box is small and can placed sideways or standing up.
