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.
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.
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.
1byone Digital Amplified Outdoor / Attic HDTV Antenna, 100 Miles Range with Power Supply Box Extremely High Performance for UHF Band
Product arrived promptly in excellent condition, and was assembled easily, however it did not receive any more stations than I already receive on my current antenna. The stations I wish to receive are about 65 miles away and this antenna wasn't able to pull them in. the nine other stations I receive were much clearer and did not show any pixelation, so it is an improvement over what I currently have. There are other stations that are about 35 miles away, but are located about ninety degrees west. I don't have a rotor so I may try both antennas connected with a splitter and see if I can receive the other stations.
I love this antenna, keep in mind it is UHF only. We are 70 miles from our broadcast towers and we are surrounded by a heavily wooded area. I mocked up this antenna in the basement level, pointed it at the compass heading of the towers through a glass door, and I scanned for new channels. This antenna picked up channels from 70 miles away, in my basement, I couldn't believe it.
I mounted this antenna on the side of the tower that our massive, old warhorse VHF antenna is mounted on. I get every single available channel at full signal, and I get 3 channels that I was't expecting from 40 miles east of my location or 90 degrees from where the antenna is pointing. I would buy this antenna again in a heartbeat, easy to assemble, inexpensive, and it works great. I installed this with a VHF / UHF Antenna Combiner installed between the power inserters and the TV.
I bought this antenna off of Amazon I live in Ponca City Oklahoma I have it aimed at Oklahoma City it's a little bit over a hundred miles away I have it about 40 feet off the ground level I'll pick up around 32 to 38 channels they all come in perfect so I would give it A 5 star rating also seems very well built
Antennae arrived as promised, safely packaged.
Construction and materials are lightweight and the design is stable in windy environments (we get gusts up to 40 mph here). Mounting hardware is sturdy and adjustable vertically as well as horizontally.
Instructions are a little bit sparse, but assembly will take 30-45 minutes to adjust and tighten things.
Most of the adjustment bolts use wing nuts, which makes assembly easier.
The power injector is encased in a sturdy plastic case with a power cord long enough to reach most any outlet nearby.
Our previous omni-directional powered antennae pulled in 25 channels: this one pulls in over 60....very interesting. We live approximately 45 miles directly south of the transmitters....but have two mountain peaks between us.
One important note: this is a UHF only antennae and it does an excellent job. Make sure you check the bandwidth requirements for the channels you want to watch. In my area, channels 8, 10.1 and 12.1 are Hi-V which, until recently, I didn't know even existed. This antennae will not pick up that bandwidth. You check out requirements at the governments FCC site here: [...]
