Too much RF can be just as deadly to DTV reception as too little. Here 
at Casa Fybush, 4300 feet from the Rochester TV transmitters, I've 
successfully eliminated some of my indoor DTV reception quirks (breakups 
as people walk around the room and such) by using a straightened-out 
paper clip inserted in the center hole of the antenna jack, in place of 
an actual antenna.

(I don't even want to know how many volts of RF I'm getting here!)
