I made one with 4 feet of 6 gauge wire and a 300ohm to 75ohm balun,  works great.

As you know indoor antennas are great for in city TV transmitters,  apartments on 3rd story or higher, or where you live on top of a hill. I live in none of these ideal locations.

Tvfool.com will let you know by los Line Of Sight if it applies to you.For your question. You have 2 groups, non amplified 6-12 dollar, or amplified 35-55 dollar table top models. The manufacturers will not matter as they will all be similar in performance for each  group, it really is about location, and if you havelos to the transmitters of interest.An attic mounted outdoor antenna with a mast mounted low noise .8db to 2db max. preamplifier, with a distribution amplifier and then to TVs avoiding using any splitters can help in restricted areas.

Hello,

I agree with everything you just said.

Mostly, if the antenna design is the same, it does not matter who manufactures the indoor antenna.

My question is not referring to "location",it is based on what "design" do you prefer.

My interest is for apartment dwellers.

Thank you,Mike

Since your question excluded diy antennas, my 12.1 cm per side double biquad from 6 gague bare copper and a cpvc piping used for backing and a stand is out. I wanted a portable antenna with gain, but Sturdy enough to be thrown in the back of atruck for a 7inch hairer digital TV on the go, could be used with any tv. Even the flat panel type  antennas just does not have good gain to them, but more able to be hidden by a photo frame. If the apartment dweller is above the majority structures / 3rdlevel or better,  a simple antenna can work great.
