As advanced technology surrounds us, we sometimes forget about simpler forms of technology. For example, television antennas. We don’t get cable television, Dish or satellite television. We just have basic TV. Most people don’t realize that with just an outdoor antennae we receive lots of channels…31 in fact. A friend of mine insists that we can’t..but truly we can.
For my hubby’s birthday we bought him a new television antennae that goes on the outside of the house. Hubby and our son put the new antennae up one weekend when he was home.
Here is my son in the skid loader bucket holding a HUGE ladder. They leaned the ladder against the house and up went my son with the antennae. I don’t have a picture of that. These two tried to get the job done without me seeing them. Apparently they thought I would panic…me panic…never…well maybe…just a little.
Somehow I feel like that antennae on top of the house is a symbol of us cheating the system. We have great entertainment from the channels we get all for the price of the antennae… $60. If you’re wondering what type of antenna we got, this one is it, CLEARSTREAM2 Antenna …nothing fancy at all. How many months of cable would $60 purchase? Our last antennae lasted 15 years so I think we are set for awhile now. If you’re looking for ways to cut back on expenses, an antennae on your house might be just the thing. The outdoor household antenna makes me feel a bit like I am cheating the system…in an honest way.
