    I just picked up an open box SIR-T151 and hooked up an antenna that I found in my attic. I get absolutely no signal at all. I started out trying it inside with no luck and then placed the antenna on the roof just to try an get somehing. I had my wife watching the signal strength while I moved the antenna but no luck (I have no intention of leaving the antenna up there without proper installation, just testing for a signal).

    Shouldn't I get at least SOMETHING? It's the antenna that I mentioned in another thread. Looks like a UHF Channel Master 4225 (Wire grid with 4 bow ties).

    All help appreciated. I'd like to tune in on the game if possible.

    Thanks.

    Doooooh! I did a scan and it picked up most of the local Channels at about 60% strength! Awsome! And that's with the antenna just leaning up against my garage roof!

    I'm in!

    :-D
