    Anyone have any suggestions on type of antenna? I need to put one in my attic, would rather not put it on my roof right now.
    I am in herndon, about 25 miles from the towers.
    Also, anyone know where I could get said antenna local?

    I am here in Arlington, Virgina. The place to get antennas is Davis Antenna. Their web site is Their installation is very good, but very expensive. I got a Wineguard antenna through them that gives me amazing reception. Unfortunately, my attic has a vapor barrier, and reflects all signals, so I went with an outside mount, and outside mounts are far superior. My antenna is quite small (about 18" x 24" x 48") and with a rotor can get all DTV stations in Washington and Baltimore. I would reconsider not doing an outside placement until you check an outside DTV installation, I think you would be surprised by how unubtrusive it can be. Feel free to contact me directly at, and I will give you directions so you can see mine. I can also recommend a very, very good antenna and satellite installer, whose fees are also quite reasonable. Good Luck!
