Outdoor TV & Radio Antennas

Ideal for back-up of subscription television services, or when cutting the cable altogether, September is a great time to install a new TV antenna on the roof.

Since the digital changeover, most stations, even those with channel designations between 2 and 13, have been moved to UHF, so there is no need for a VHF antenna.
