    I have just recieved my new HDTV reciever from direct tv and was wanting to pick up an antenna to be able to get my local HD channels I found a site that gave me the distance from stations ( 20 miles from farthest station )and I was wondering if the silver sensor from zenith would be a good choice for this or if I should go out and buy a rooftop antenna for this I have minimal trees in my area. thanks any help would help.

    Silver Sensor should be fine for a 20mile distance if your stations are broadcasting with a reasonable power output and you are not in a deep valley or something that would block the signals. Best results would be to locate the antenna at least looking thru a window in the direction of the broadcast towers, stucco walls have fine wire mesh that reduces the signal a lot. Outdoor is better just to avoid the signal reflections off objects and people walking near the indoor antenna. I put a small one on my back porch to avoid those issues.
