My 2012 214WSD does too but it sucks and doesn't pull in much of anything.

but if the tv is not capable of receiving digital signals you on't get anything regardless of how good the antenna is. I think my FF is a 2006 and that is right around when the system was moving to digital over-the-air signals. My tv was analog only and by the time I bought it two years ago all broadcasts have been moved to digital.

Default digital antennas

Don't be fooled by all the hype from companies trying to sell "digital" antennas - an antenna's an antenna. Just for kicks, from a hobbyist Internet plan, I built an approximately 2'x2' antenna out of stripped Romex house wire, some scrap 1x2s and a 75 ohm balun (antenna-coax adapter). It drew in exactly as many channels as one of those poorly built antennas we see advertised these days. And the channels were crystal clear. My sons ended up using it in their apartment for several years. Yes, your problem is likely due to a bad connection, a bad amplifier or maybe even coax that's been bent too tight and broken inside. If you expect to do much coax work I recommend getting an inexpensive coax tester. It screws on both ends of a length of coax and lights up if the wire's good. Plus, you can wiggle inline connectors to check them.
