Never tried that one, but let us know how it works out.  I'll have to
do a different antenna setup when we move this winter.

My current setup uses a 2x2' square grid mounted to a post in my attic.
I bought it locally many years ago (before most of the country had ever
yeard of digital TV), so I'm not even sure of the brand.  It works well,
though.  I'm in Lincoln, and it pulls in Omaha stations wondefully.
I had to put an in-line amp up in the attic to combat signal attenuation
by the time the cable snaked down to my basement & back up to the TV.
