At the risk of dating myself, I remember jury-rigging a rabbit-ear antenna to a portable TV that we tried to use while RVing. After painful maneuvering, we were able to pull in a few over-the-air channels, but dealing with a snowy picture was part of the experience. Broadcast TV has taken a back seat... Read more »
