Where I live we have trouble getting a tv signal, I already had an antenna that didn't really pull in much, it sounded like this would work better. Not at all. The description made it sound like it would work far better than the one I already had, but I can't pull in anything with this one.
I like this antenna, so far works fine. Use it for few weeks now and no complains. Only thing is the instructions could be more detailed other than that good product,
Great antenna great price I install TV's and home theater equipment. This is the best antenna I've used and I've tried them all.
I works as advertised. It took 10-15 minutes to put it together. I haven't used the free cable it came with (free w/ coupon). It's pretty sturdy
It's not small (~3.5' x 2' x 1.5') nor particularly light, but pulls in all the local off axis stations (w/i ~20 miles) & stations from ~65 miles away when pointed in that direction. Local stations are VHF & UHF. When pointed in between my local stations to the North and the 65 mile away stations to the East, reception of the far ones is iffy, no surprise really. It needs to be pointed in that direction for solid reception.
I bought this to replace a small powered Vilso WA-2608 yagi style antenna that died after a year. I didn't want to deal with having to have an amplifier & found I didn't never used motorized rotation either. This is really overkill for my use since I don't watch the far stations often, as they overlap local networks for the most part, but I can now pull in those farther stations from the Capitol if I want to.
I have it mounted on a 36" Mediasonic Homeworx J-pole(~$25 here on Amazon) the fascia of my 1 story roof . So it's ~12' off the ground.
I would've put it my attic, but the splitter & everything is on the outside corner where I mounted it & old fiber/cable boxes are. If it gets knocked down (it's under a big live oak tree), maybe I'll move it into the attic & hassle with running the cable through the soffit.
So for under $75 for this antenna & a 3' J-pole mount I've got excellent OTA TV.
This antenna picks up nearly all available stations from the Indianapolis area to our home in SW Delaware County about 45 miles, and all are crystal clear except during high winds and during those times we do experience some pixelating. I am receiving signals over a barricade of trees some 70 - 90 feet tall and 150 yards away. The antenna is mounted on a single story house roof approximately 15 feet up. Although I have it mounted on a rotor, the stations are all in a sort of group to the south west and It is seldom necessary to change the direction. It does well on nearby backside transmitters, too. I like the antenna, but it wouldn't have hurt them to include some text with the "picture" instructions. Many little points that I finally figured out on my own would have saved me a lot of time in setup, had they been mentioned. I even noticed in an online assembly video that the creator of that video had missed a couple key points in the assembly procedure.
I can only like a piece of hardware with no moving parts. It comes in a kit, and is easy to assemble. It replaced my older UHF antenna. I got this because it also included some of the VHF channels that are in the new digital era but did not move to UHF. NOTE ! Before buying any combo VHF/UHF antenna make sure the channels you have locally match the coverage of any combo antenna. For me I was told all my locals would switch to UHF, only to find out after I installed a new UHF, the final implementation of the digital conversion some stayed on VHF.
I attaced the attena to my home made 2" galvanized pipe extension (which i added on top of an old satellite receiver eve bracket) and connected it to the exiating satellite cable system. Went from 2 channels to 28 HD and 5 analogue . The reception is better than my satellite and i get more stations than are offered by DTV. The best 40$ investment you can mke. I do have the luxury of living on a ridge top with a line of sight view to the transmitters 35 miles away on a mountain top. So while my situation is optimal, your results may vary from mine.
Very happy with the reception. The antenna is installed in the attic of attached garage. Relative bought an antenna which was twice the price. The reception was not as good as this one. They bought this oneby1 and are glad. Very satisfied customer.
Excellent value for the price. This antenna pulls in stations about 55 miles away with over 60% signal strength. Easy assembly and set up. One improvement would be a rubber weather boot for the coaxial cable that can be installed on an existing cable end.
Like many others I wanted to reduce my cable bill so I called them and started getting internet only. Im perfectly happy streaming Amazon Prime and Netflix, but I was missing live, local channels. With this in mind I found this antenna on Amazon.
After it arrived I was able to assemble it in about 5 minutes. I laughed thinking how cool this thing looked! I was gonna get ALL the channels. I quickly shot up my ladder and attached it to an old satellite dish mount. I pulled in 40 channels, and that was without pointing it in any specific direction.
The pole it was mounted to wasnt long enough so I ordered a new one. In the meantime I used an old piece of PVC as a pole extension and pulled in 51 channels! Shortly after a massive storm came rolling though and without the antenna being affixed properly, it fell off my roof. Did it break? NOPE! This thing is a beast!
My new mount came so I put that up today and now I get almost 60 channels for free. Couple that with my HDHOMERUN device and I can "stream" my antenna broadcast to any computer or phone.
Amazing! I love this thing! I can't possible recommend it enough.
