The XYL won't allow a can't experiment that much.
You must be a ham.

My wife tolerates my antenna experiments because she wanted a battery operated TV for use during a power failure. She even bought a signal level meter for me.

An indoor antenna worked for an analog TV near a window, but it doesn't work for digital TV because the insulation in the outer walls has an aluminum foil vapor barrier. We are living in a Faraday Cage. I had to set up an outdoor antenna on the porch.
