What were some good antennas for the analog TV spectrum?
Simple enough of a question, but I prefer it to be indoor, or can at least fit indoors.

good tv reception possible when tv antenna is in the line of sight of tower.you may receive a good signal in a street but on a high roof not WHY ? on street you see tower but on the roof you can not because of a taller building in the path of LOS .
if you are on upper floors and have a window in LOS , you may use an indoor antenna......if not go to the roof and locate a point in LOS then install a uhf antenna .
email me if you have any question .

Um, that depends.
Go to Antennaweb.org or TVfool.com and find out how far you are from the TV stations. If you are not too far (12 miles, line of sight) then a simple bowtie will work. Seriously, this is my antenna: http://myplace.frontier.com/~g_reeder/Content/DTV_...
There are other antennas that work for if you are in the fringe areas. Note that walls and roofs will reduce the signal level, so try to receive through a window or place the antenna to limit the number of walls between you and the transmitters.
