OTA TV Antenna Deals?

Here's one you don't see often. I'm looking for a good OTA tv antenna i.e Channel Master 4228 at a good price. I missed the sale The Source had a month ago and have been waiting for a price drop ever since.

Does anyone know where I can get one at a good price (sub 100$)?

For outdoor, Factory Direct has Digiwave DW2044 for $18., but shipping to BC is $20.64, so it's not worth it, but if you can go to a store then it's good. FD also has a high gain, directional one, on clearance for $35. seems like a good deal but I am not sure how long lasting they are compared to other brands. Best to check digitalhome forums on OTA.

The kind folks at Digital Homes recommended a CM 4228 specifically because I need an outdoor antenna that can catch signals 50km away from me without a problem.

Is that a Terk "style" antenna or an actual Terk? My Terk is silver/grey in colour.
The pic at http://www.princessauto.com/pal/product ... or-Antenna looks exactly the same as the Terk antenna I got from The Source (for $50) a while back. If you click the "View Larger Image" link on the site, you can see the Terk logo on the side of the antenna.

Sale price is now valid on the website, BTW. Shipping is under $10, if you don't have a store near by.
These folks have taken over RFD, so I'm done here.

Picked up the above-mentioned refurb Terk from PA and works just fine for me in Ottawa (closer to downton on the main floor of my house).
Picked up CTV1 and 2, CBC (english and French), City, CHCH (Sun), OMNI2, TVOntario and some of the French networks. Have to tweak the position a bit for CHRO or else it gets all pixelated and drops out (not a big deal to me). No US networks (no PBS) though. Worth the $19.99 - thinking seriously of giving the boot to Rogers cable now that they don't want to give me any deals after 6 years (their best 2-yr contract offer was for $25 more than I'm paying now for cable and internet), so I might up the internet service and get a roku/media box in combination with a VPN service and get the US networks that way and Cdn channels with this.

Are you going to stick with the indoor antenna for the next little while or are you going to upgrade to the next level e.g. db4e?

I am also with Rogers for now in Ottawa (basic cable) only and I am thinking of going the OTA route. I will give it a whirl with this indoor antenna first and see how that goes.
