[free-software-melb] TV Antenna's (Kinda non-free Software)

Hi Everyone,
I Recently purchased a TV Antenna USB Stick online from China.

Here is the link to the device I purchased:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Digital-USB-TV-FM-DAB-DVB-T-RTL2832U-R820T-Support-SDR-Tuner-Receiver-Free-Shipping/32661367598.html

One that I could muck around with, as it has many great uses for
experimenting with SDR as well as Digital Television.

One thing that really sucks though, is the antenna it came with it
extremely week and doesn't pick up anything other than some FM channels.

So I was thinking of getting an Indoor TV antenna (that I can hook up to
the USB device), but not sure which is the best and most affordable.

I already have purchased the coaxial to MCX converter cable for it, as
it is needed to plug in a normal TV aerial to the USB TV Antenna device.

I don't want to spend any more than I have to on an indoor antenna, so
$50 is kind of the limit. And if possible, I don't want to have to use
an external power source for it either.

Anyone on this mailing list got any suggestions?


Kind Regards,
--
