Does it work OK with a digital adapter? I was thinking of buying one when my TV contract expires.

“Does it work OK with a digital adapter? I was thinking of buying one when my TV contract expires.”

Couple of web sites for you to check: http://antennaweb.org or http://tvfool.com. They will help you to determine the size of antenna you would need at your location to receive stations, and how many stations you should expect.

If you have an older analog set you will need a analog to digital converter. From the wikipedia, here were the dates established by the FCC which mandated tuners in television sets:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATSC_tuner

The FCC has issued the following mandates for devices entering the US:[1][2][3]
By July 1, 2005 all televisions with screen sizes over 36 inches (91 cm) must include a built-in ATSC DTV tuner
By March 1, 2006 all televisions with screen sizes over 25 inches (64 cm) must include a built-in ATSC DTV tuner
By March 1, 2007 all televisions regardless of screen size, and all interface devices that include a tuner (VCR, DVD player/recorder, DVR) must include a built-in ATSC DTV tuner.

If you have more questions, freep mail me.

For an education on the subject Bing search for HD antenna videos
There are several videos showing how to make such an antenna.

I have one I carry in my RV. In a campground near Ft worth it received 58 channels.

The problem is if you are distant, 25 miles or so) they must be high and may be directional
