Crave giveaway: FlatWave amplified HDTV antenna from Winegard

If you need an indoor antenna for over-the-air HDTV, why not go with one that's amplified and has a cool, inconspicuous design?

There it is, in the top window on the left. Winegard

Congrats to Nancy H. of San Diego for winning a Kisai Rorschach wristwatch from Tokyoflash in last week's giveaway. Watch over-the-air HDTV? Then tune in. This week's prize is for you.

We've got a FlatWave Amped indoor amplified HDTV antenna from Winegard. The antenna has an embedded ultra-low-noise preamplifier that amplifies 100 percent of the signal up to 50 miles. It's dual-band, meaning you don't miss out on channels that other compact ultra-high-frequency-only antennas do.

The antenna's ultrathin design makes it much less intrusive than a traditional antenna, and at 13x12 inches and less than a pound, it can be more easily placed in unconventional areas to maximize TV reception. Yeah, we've come a long way since rabbit ears.

So what do you have to do to add this $69.99 amplified HDTV antenna to your home entertainment setup for free? Please read carefully; our official makers of rules have handed down a few regulations.
