I was thinking about installing an indoor HDTV Antenna on my boat under the cockpit for TV reception when in the slip. Honestly, I think I am too far away from the signal (36 miles) for an indoor HDTV antenna to even work.
I was wondering what some of you have done to gain access to TV on your boat.
Thanks in advance.

Stephen, I have just come off a boat that had a TV antenna mounted on the mast. It came from West Marine and only weighs 3 lbs. It is hooked up to an analog tv through a converter box. Granted it was at 63' up, but we had better reception than I get with Cable. We were in Oxford MD and had 6 stations from Baltimore and DC each 45 miles away, plus three weather channels. I was shocked. I think I am going to mount one on my crane oat the top of my mast andsee what I get.
