I'm seriously considering getting rid of my DVR box and switching back to an OTA antenna and have this one in mind: http://www.ebay.com/itm/390737010972?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:VRI&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2661 I dont think that is too bad of a price for an antenna like that.. Ive considered getting one of those cheap antennas with the built-in rotors but i just dont see those performing as well as antenna as this one. I think it will be good enough to pull in stations from surrounding cities and then some.. I would pair it with about 50 or 100' of RG6 depending on exactly how high i get. I would put it on a pre-existing pole/post that is in my yard. I just dont know what to use as a mast or what diameter and what type of clamps to use to strap it to the post, as it is rectangular and flat on two sides.

It should be already have holes drilled through it for U-bolts (they're probably included with the antenna). Use rigid electrical conduit (the heavy galvanized type) as a mast, then use metal pipe clamps to attach the mast to whatever structure.

Be sure to provide good lightning protection for your antenna line. Sometimes it gets put off this time of year, but you will feel a lot better having it in place when you need it. The antenna looks like a good choice.
