    Receives weak VHF without using an amplifier.

    I have had this antenna for about six months. It is roof mounted on a short mast. I live around 30 miles from the transmitters. Very happy with the reception. It works flawlessly. I also use it to record TV shows with a Home Media PC and never had an issue. It went through a severe winter here and it held up very well.

  • "Good reception, weak mechanically" by praudio on 12/21/2013
    Overall: 3 out of 5
    Value:
    Quality:

    Reception seems fairly good so far. If you can get it up high (>30 ft.), over flat terrain and assuming the station is fairly powerful and broadcasts off a very high tower, it might actually make its 60 mile rating.

    The problem is that the boom is only about 0.71" square (cross-section) and made of 0.31" thick aluminum. This might be ok of the antenna was supported in the middle of the assembly ( clamp-to-mast location), but, instead, the antenna clamps to the mast at the extreme rear of the boom. This puts huge leverage on the rear of the boom -- I doubt it would survive a 40 mph wind, or a quarter inch of ice: Both are common events in the mid-South.

    Almost as bad, this design puts enormous torque on your mast if there is much wind. This may twist your antenna in it's clamp or at the mast clamp to its mount or a rotator, or it may damage your rotator. Or it may simply break the clamp with time. (In a good boom antenna design, the wind load to the rear of the mast would approximately balance the wind load to the front of the mast.)

    The only way I can see using an antenna of this type, with this (mounting) design with such a light boom is:

    In an attic.

    On a mast with very serious bracing added. Hopefully the structure would durable and not be too "real Rube Goldberg".

    Two on a mast, essentially back-to-back, and well braced. I am thinking of running a steel re-rod or steel bars as far in from the back of the boom as possible, and probably adding external bracing as well. This will hopefully work, but not even including my time, will probably cost as much as the 2 antennas did, when all is said and done. And it will be heavy. At least the good news is that most of our "main" stations are in 2 groups, roughly 180 degrees apart.

  • "Home install" by doughertyp on 10/26/2013

    This antenna is easy to set up and install. HDTV VHF and UHF is suprising good. 10 foot mast, on roof, works great. San Fernando Valley Calif. I'm picking up some stations over 60 miles away. Go for it!

  • "Antenna pulls in strong signal." by Gary1gee on 8/5/2013
    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    Quality:

    I like that it can get UHF and VHF. Beats a terrible and more expensive antenna with booster. This was easy to put together.

  • "Snap to install" by hdtv25 on 7/30/2013
    Overall: 5 out of 5
    Value:
    Quality:

    I recently installed this antenna in my attic. With a little direction tuning and a amplifier I picked up all of my area stations which are 40 to 50 miles away and spread over a 40 degree arc. The one thing that really stood out when install this antenna was how easy it was to assemble. There are only three wing nuts and two of those are for attaching the antenna to the pole. Otherwise everything either folds out or simply snaps into place. I've assembles a number of antenna in my life and this was truly the first one I can say was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this product.
