Awesome news! Credit to your hard work, plus a potential new member. Can't do much better than that under the circumstances.

All is well that ends well!

:D

Well, we try to be friendly but it has been more than 5 days since the email exchange and still no change in that blog. Perhaps someone else could cordially ask him to change the links so that they point to this thread, and also ask him to join up here?

The PDF links now point to a note that says you asked him to remove them.
He still has the text from ota_canuck's 4221 hacks post without attribution.

Here's the note I just sent him -
Message: Mr. Mathurin
I see that you have fixed the links to the copyrighted antenna chart posted on the OTA forum at DigitalHome.ca. All of us there appreciate that. Would you also be good enough to attribute the information regarding the CM4221HD antenna hacks that were copied from that forum also? The contributor in that case was the forum user with the handle 'ota_canuck'.
Thanks RK

He seems to have changed the wording a bit of the message I sent him. :rolleyes: I suppose I should just leave him to his sideways antenna.

Regarding the indoor recommendation "Silver Sensor-style with VHF elements" aren't we talking about the Terk Amplified Indoor HDTV antenna? "Silver Sensor-style with VHF elements" isn't something you can find on the internet.

I think the Winegard sharp shooter is also out of production, replaced with something that looks quite inferior.

Indoor antenna's seem to be regressing, but maybe that's just me.

FYI I've bought the Terk for family & it's blown the competition out of the water.

I've been receiving/learning other info too for quite awhile, so I hope to integrate it into a new version soon.

Not just you. I've never liked the idea of ranking indoor antennas due to the myriad of local, specific reception issues affecting any such device. I think consumers have become much more savvy about supposedly wonderful indoor antennas. Some models are better than others, so we'll continue on with that as long as people know that an indoor antenna is usually not a satisfactory solution.
