I have been using the traditional indoor "rabbit ears" forever. When TV went digital years ago, sometimes the slightest things, including a windy day, would interfere with reception. When I recently decided to purchase an HD TV, I knew it was time for me to get a better antenna.
The antenna itself is made of lightweight aluminum and plastic, literally the cheapest made thing I have delt with for a long time. The plastic prevents all of the antenna loops from working together, so I integrated them all with wire I had on hand. The loops are barely held onto the plastic with super tiny screws, so I added super glue to all of the points. I have only one major signal transmitter for my area, so I aimed the antenna when I mounted it on the house, and have not needed to use the rotation function, so I can't confirm that feature works.
I now get more channels than before. Channels that were difficult to get with rabbit ears now come in perfect when the amplifier box is turned on, so that part definitely works. I figure that if the actual antenna ever "gives up" from poor workmanship, I will use the amplifier with a better antenna (like one that is all metal).
