I am only using a Terk indoor antenna. My place is weird as well. A concrete building built in the 1970's (?) with only westward facing windows. Most of my stations require the antenna to be pointed towards the northeast (a no-go for me). I can only get PBS and Fox/CW stations in town; I rarely watch those 3 channels. The apartment has no outdoor antenna and since there's concrete everywhere, there is no place to put the antenna (or dish)
So, as I am saying, I am likely stuck with cable until I move.
