Mohu Leaf antenna so that I could get local channels but I never got around to it. It cost $40 and I couldn't see the need to spend the money. My sister is visiting and she is a big football fan. She realized on Saturday that I don't have cable or satellite TV and she was going to have to go hang out at a sports bar in order to watch football. I thought about the problem and remembered that I wanted to try an indoor antenna but it was too late to buy one from Amazon. I was reading the reviews and one person mentioned that an antenna from Big Lots works just as well as one of the more expensive antennas from Amazon. It just so happens that I have a Big Lots store right down the street. I never even thought to look there. I stopped in and found one. It was originally $17 but on sale for $15. I was skeptical but I took it home, plugged it in and my TV found 5 local channels (not counting the non-English channels). 2 of those channels had football so my sister was thrilled. I think Tucson only has 5 local channels so I don't know what the more expensive antenna would do for me, maybe pull in some channels from Phoenix?
I am happy with my local channels. When my sister is no longer watching football, I will take my extra TV, converter box, and new antenna to my old mobile home so that I have something to watch while I am cleaning and sorting my stuff out there. The old mobile home has an exterior antenna but still only got 3 channels. I'm hoping this new antenna gets 5 channels out there too. If I had known that I could get local channels with a $15 antenna I would have done it long ago.
