    I was in BestBuy today and saw that they had a Terk UHF antenna that looked just like the Zenith Silver Sensor. It was up high on a shelf so I couldn't see much except for the picture. Is Terk trying to capitalize on the Silver Sensor by making a knockoff? Here is a pdf from the Terk site.

    Yes the AVS forum reported that Terk had that new unit. But someone tested it and the Terk's performance was way below that of a true Silver Sensor!

    I really doubt that's true...just typical Terk bashing, more than likely. There's not a whole lot of magic in log periodic antenna design.
