It was a 12" Zenith, and there was a great big double antenna on the roof, one pointed toward Milwaukee (25 miles away) and the other pointed toward Chicago, 75 or so miles away.  There were 5 stations available (only 1 in Milwaukee, the other 4 in Chicago).  No soaps, either.

I'm not that old, but I remember when "big screen TV" was anything
over 20"... and nowadays, getting anything smaller than 20" is a
challenge! I don't even know what a "large screen TV" is these days...
TVs just getting bigger and bigger and bigger and ever cheaper...
