How terrible? I gave up on TV terrible. The worst reception always was about 8:30 p.m.. If I started to watch something at 8:00, just as it was getting into the drama and winding down, that's when reception would "pixelize" out. I gave up trying, in disgust. Instead I played with my cats and read crime drama books gleaned from thrift stores and free boxes.
Until a few days ago.
I scored an antenna, from some friends, who had been to a sale at Fred Meyer and gone a little nuts. Like many people, they can't afford cable either. This is why they went on a spend spree:
|Plastic package window slap on antenna was in. Now that is a mark down!|
|The Slap On antenna, stuck to the inside of my window|
Did I think that cheap looking thin round plastic antenna would capture signal? Hell no. Was I ever shocked.
Now I can usually get the 3 major networks, plus FOX, plus PBS, Justice Channel and Retro Channel. Plus a few others sometimes. Not bad for a buck!
