The average homeowner/DIY’er should have no problem receiving strong (green marked) stations with an inexpensive flat antenna. Flat antennas can be easily be positioned on the wall/window to find that “SWEET SPOT” or even hide from view. I have found a few inches in positioning can make all the difference.
