  • Omni or Bi-Directional

    Hello all, what would be the best choice for installing an FM antenna on my balcony in Manhattan? Should I go with bi-directional or omni? Or just plain rabbit ears? BTW does anyone know the difference between bi and omni?

    I use a $10 pair of RCA rabbit ears out on my back porch (ground level) in Florida, works far better than any indoor antenna solution.

      Actually, I should say, I don't put the rabbit ears on the ground. I place them on top of an A/C unit which is a couple feet tall.
