Do you still have a rabbit ear antenna?

If so, do you have problems getting a good signal? I live on the 3rd floor of my apt building and I don't get signal during the day and it's hard to find a good spot to place it when I do get signal at night. Do you have ideas to get optimal signal out of your antenna?

  • Those should not work. It is all digital now.

  • We got the new digital converter boxes with rabbit ears.They suck! We just bought an antenna to put on the roof to improve our signal. Don't know if that is an option for you though.

  • No. We had a few days where we didn't have cable so we bought a digital antenna and it worked like crud so I cannot even imagine how a rabbit eared one would work these days.

  • If you are having trouble call the cable company. They should be able to help you. If not call the digital converter's company fir help. :)

  • Go to Radio Shack and buy a HD Adapter or converter thing. Much cheaper in the long run compared to paying huge amounts money for cable.
