Any one here bought and installed one of the long range cheap antennas from Amazon. If so did it work for you. A lot of the reviews spoke highly by a large percent with a small percent posting as not acceptable.

It is amplified. Works great. 40 stations.

Yup. That's what we use. It's around $100 for a 90 mile range. They work good if you have stations that close.

You can get them at Best Buy and other places also.

Those are on my cable channels. There are at least three channels that show oldies shows. On Saturday, it’s old western all day on one channel.

I am not ashamed of watching those shows. I should have said that I am ashamed to be sitting in front of the TV. I would rather be out working. But this winter has been a 'sit in the house' winter.

I had the old fashioned outdoor antenna 25 years ago, and I could barely get one channel with a booster because I live in such a low-lying area. Are these modern antennas affected by that as well?

Yes. If you do not have clear line of sight to the tower, your reception will not be as good.
