My mother in law bought one for more money but it didn't have as far as a signal as this one. The only problem is that we can't split it for it to go to two televisions. This is why I gave it 4 stars.
I removed my satellite dish and attached it to the stand and it works great. I'm about 60 miles from the nearest large city with tv stations and I get about 25 channels. Got it mainly for the locals and I get that plus a few more. Easy to install and works great.
So far the reception is bad for this item, but I'm going to play with it some more this weekend. I found a website that let's me know which direction to point towards the direction of the stations.
It did not work for me.
I bought two antennas because my broadcasters are NW, N and SE from home. The closest major broadcaster is 50 miles and the farthest is 85 miles away. I placed them 16 feet apart to avoid wave overlapping and facing E and W. I combined the two antennas by tinkering with coaxial cable Splitter/Combiner, Diplexer and bare wires. Connecting the two always resulted in signal cancellation. Using one antenna at a time at one point I picked 27 channels, 20 of them were duplicates with the other direction. I connected the TV to the W facing antenna, (the best reception), and called it a day. Unfortunately, 90% of the time I only receive 9 Channels, 3 of which are the same network from two near by towns. So, I can watch 3 channels on 2 different dials for each, but I get to enjoy different commercials.
I rated it 4, because, it trained me to live without a TV for the past 2 months and I realized I don't miss TV. So, my $190 cable, phone & internet bill is now $34 for internet only. I'm open for suggestion to reduce my internet bill.
Easy to set up and easy to install. Reception feels good. We haven't used it a whole lot yet as we are in the middle of running all new cable through the house. It is amazing how crisp the channels come in.
Does pretty good, but I have only have it 13 feet above the ground. Most towers are 30 to 60 miles away. Plan to play with it more when weatherb
Antenna seems to pull in the stations. Thanks goodness for the amplifier, without it I would not have much to look at. It doesn't help that I am such a long distance from the stations and also down in a bit of a hole. I am satisfied with the antenna's performance
This antenna works very well. The amplifier will detect a short in the coaxial cable and indicate so by lighting up red instead of green. I get every channel available for 50-60 miles and some further away. I have it mounted on the old DirecTV satellite pole on my roof. It is worth mentioning, this antenna does NOT include a pole or mount to attach it your home. I has everything you need to fix it to an already mounted pole about 1-2 inches in diameter. In my area, I get 50 channels, although some are duplicate broadcasted stations. It does not work very well without the amplifier. Some channels will come through, but it makes all the difference in the world when the amplifier is properly connected. The only reason I took one star away is it isn't an aesthetically pleasing accessory to your home. It's not really that big compared to some antennas but it isn't tiny either. I would say it's about 3 feet by 2 feet by 1 foot.
Mounted this antenna 8 ft. above the roof and surrounded by giant oak trees . To my amasement , I am receiving 43 channels , both UHF & VHF with no faze out !
it worked well for my application. I was able to get over 22 channels located over 60 miles away. It is also light weight and withstood 70 mile an hour straight line winds.
