Okay that's very helpful, and thanks to Kloraff too.
If your intended stations are English only then they are all on VHF, and you cannot use an outdoor antenna so a set of rabbit ears is okay for your situation. Don't spend a lot of money on them - the cheapest basic unamplified ones from Zellers or WalMart are fine - don't read the claims on the boxes when you are shopping!
You will need to put the aerials completely flat horizontally from the centre stand, not upwards or in a Vee. The lower the channel number, the more you need to extend them outwards. The higher the channel, the more you need to push them in. Practice makes perfect.
Further, you will need to rotate the rabbit ears to get the intended stations, depending on which direction the signals are coming from. The aerials have to be at a right angle to the direction of the signals.
If this doesn't work out for you, try an amplified set of rabbit ears.
I sure wish you could put up an outdoor antenna! If all you can get is VHF a Delhi 304 or 305, 306 would be terrific, but if you can also get UHF stations a Delhi 934 or even a 935 or 936 would be great.
