Ok, I know it's in the basement and all, but I'm having a really tough time pulling in Jerry Springer on UPN. I'm only about 57 miles from the transmitter and there are only a few trees and buildings between it and my house. I have a 12" Emerson B/W set recently picked up (for a steal I might add) at a local garage sale. The seller threw in a UHF/coat hanger antenna with the set, but my question is, should I stick with the original coat hanger, make a new one, or look for rabbit ears at another sale? Do the coat hangers deteriorate after a certain number of hours? I have about $5 saved up to fix this problem. Help! "I had sex with your mother's boyfriend" is going to be on next Tuesday and I don't want to miss it! Any ideas? P.S. Tried to pick up satellite with the Red Green trash can lid kit but it didn't work.
