    I have Direct TV and am quite happy with it, except for one thing: Local channel reception.
    I bought a powered antenna similar to this:

    Most channels come it fairly well. ABC is fuzzy, and UPN is only received on lucky days.
    This blows chunks for me because I MUST have my Star Trek Enterprise!
    I am wondering if there is anyway to further boost my signal. What if I put two of these powered antenna in line? Would that help. or fry everything that I hold dear?

    no suggestions yet? Did I post in the wrong forum? On a bad day? Is my karma in neutral?
