Additional External Antenna

While I love to travel in my Airstream, I also have a sedentary site (the Minnesota Airstream Park) that I send a fair amount of time at. The TV reception is pretty poor, as the location is 60 miles from Minneapolis. I'l like to add an external antenna mounted on a pole cemented in the ground. Can I simply use the cable input or is there something about that input that is expecting something other than a digital television signal?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Don't know that answer, but you can buy FLAT coax and run your external antenna's cable in through a window and directly into your TV. Handy way to bypass and therefore test any components installed during manufacture. You might find a bad wire, connector or defective splitter.
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
