Yes, the converter requires an antenna of some sort connected with a 75ohm coaxial. But any standard TV antenna will work. As antennas go it's the bigger the better. The higher it is from the ground the better the reception. If your location is near to the majority of the transmitters in your area rabbit ears might work for you. If you are far away from them you will need a larger mast elevated antenna, and possibly an antenna amplifier, for optimal reception. FYI-The antenna power feature on the NT-52 does not function properly.
I just bought one of these, and did not know needed an antenna. Ok, so if your TV's are older you need a antenna. My one TV that is 2 years old did not, but I can tell though with a antenna you get more stations. I bought the flat box antenna and the old time rabbit ears that have been revamped....the rabbit ears have more excellent selection. The other flat box works but you get more channels on the 10.00 rabbit ears. A tip on antenna's the closer to a window the better for clear signals. I have mine high up like at 5 feet, very clear. I hope this will keep some from being frustrated. If you have the fiance you can get the outside mount antenna, you will have to mount to roof or pole, and than the cord. By the way I get almost as many channels as I did on basic cable. If you have a metal roof or metal frame house, your reception will be poor.
I'm guessing that's a yes. I'm buying a converter box to go with the digital antenae I bought.
