Best Indoor HDTV Antenna?

What's a fair price for a decent indoor HDTV antenna?

I've seen a few sites where you can make your own as well---but I'm not very handy, so I've decided to take the easy way out.

I question how good an indoor one could be but I understand if that is all someone is able to use.

I'm a little less than 20 miles from all the transmitters around here and an indoor antenna works great. I have a Terk and have been very happy with it, but if I were much farther from the transmitters I would probably get one of the more high-tech antennas.

The best antenna? The one that works.

Actually, you'd probably need one that is a little less high-tech, but maybe just higher.

Re: Best Indoor HDTV Antenna?

I bought an indoor antenna for about 25 bucks and it works nicely for stations that have transmitters reasonably close to me (not bad for an antenna that's in the basement!). But once in a while, I lose the signal for a second, which is annoying to watch and listen to. This, combined with me not being able to receive the slightly more distant Toronto digital channels is why I plan to set up a nice, high outdoor antenna in the spring.
