An inside antenna will sometimes work quite well, and is the less expensive choice. They can be purchased at stores like Walmart. Some viewers are able to receive KRHP-TV with a simple bow-tie antenna. Others use a more expensive indoor antenna.
Outside antennas can also be purchased at stores like Walmart. However, they are usually installed on rooftops.

If you have a newer digital TV set, simply hook up the antenna to the digital TV set.
