If you're curious markn+, and live within driving distance of a retailer that sells them (definitely Best Buy and Wal Mart), it wouldn't be too much of a hassle to purchase an antenna, hook it up and try it out. Return it if your reception is as bad as you think.

I did this myself some 10 years ago, with an extremely cheap "rabbit ears" set from Best Buy, and have had the same setup ever since. Never returned it. There have been much better antennas released since I bought mine (people particularly like the Mohu brand) but with digital you either get the signal or you don't, and I'm fortunate enough that all of my local channels hit me and hang on.
