    Deep Fringe VHF

    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    I am using this antenna to receive channel 8 from 65 miles away with 2 edge and channel 10 from 40 miles away 1 edge. Excellent results on both channels with no preamp with about 50' of coax. I do need a small distribution amp to connect a second tv due to a long cable run. This antenna is easy to assemble, lightweight, and performs very well and is a great value. Can't say yet about longevity but am hopefull and do not hesitate to recommend.

    Teamed with a UHG Yagi and a UHF/VHF signal combiner and it works great at 60 miles from attic

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    The antenna is solid , especially for in-attic usage, and was easy to assemble and mount in my attic. I essentially rested this across a few horizontal rafters in my attic and aimed it with my computers signal strength meter for the VHF stations in my area (60 miles away). At night I get these at between 80-100% signal strength. VHF appears to be more affected by interference whereas UHF is more resilient in my experience.

    Didn't work for me :-(

    Overall: 2.5 out of 5

    From the reviews I read before buying I fully expected this antennae to work. I'm trying to get a single VHF channel with it -- Channel 11, which they call channel 2 here in east central Florida, specifically "WESH-DT 11 (2.1) NBC 45.7mi LOS 29.9dB" -- so 45.7 miles away from me with a so-so signal. The DTV info on indicates it shouldn't be too hard to get, recommending an "attic antennae". I tried standing on a ladder outside, so about 15ft above ground, and still nothing. The only thing I haven't tried is standing on the roof, but that doesn't seem hopeful if I can't at least get a weak single on the ground. And if this antennae doesn't work what else can one do?

    In any case, the price is good, but this doesn't appear to be as good an antenna as advertised.

    Did not improve reception

    Overall: 4 out of 5

    I have a 30-2475 but the hi-vhf channel 13 was too weak, causing the channel to break up. So I tried this 30-2476 which is larger and is supposed to have higher gain, but it did not improve reception at all. It may be the channel itself that is the main problem, but I really thought this deep fringe antenna would help. Since it did not, it looks like I will have to return this and try a pre-amplifier, which I wanted to avoid.

    Had problem channels

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    I had a antennacraft HUB55 that worked for awhile but then lost my ABC 13 out of Asheville. Tried everything, no 13. So since my OTA is both VHF and UHF I ordered this antenna for VHF and the 8 bay UHF along with the signal combiner. I put the VHF antenna together and stood it against my fence behind the garage and connected it to the TV in there. It received everything in the upstate SC region and channel 3 out of Charlotte NC. I was so impressed that I put it on my 30 foot mast with a channel master 7778 amp slit to four TV's. Low and behold all my local market plus three of four Charlotte markets. No need for the 8 bay UHF or combiner. It is pulling the UHF's in just fine. So if you need a 8 bay and a combiner let me know, because this antenna does it all.

    Biggest VHF-Hi antenna available anywhere!

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    As with the 30-2476, the construction of this antenna is unbelievably good! The elements are very rigid and all are held in place by metal clips/wingnuts. Best build quality of antenna antenna on the market. Period.

    I would assume it's got somewhere in the neighborhood of 9-11dBd gain. Good for the farthest fringe locations.

    Best available VHF antenna

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Used THREE of these in my attic to pull in a vhf station at 68 miles. I simply attached the front half of two of the antennas to a complete antenna. Read my complete review here:

    Great Antenna

    Overall: 5 out of 5
    Top 10 Contributor

    Installed the 30-2370 UHF antenna 30' above the ground, along with this VHF model five feet below, using the 33-2230 combiner at a location 10 miles NE of Dayton, Ohio. Feeding roughly 60' of RG6U to a single television with no amplifier, I am able to receive all 50 channels from Dayton and Cincinnati (55 miles) with absolutely no issues. Cincy channel 12.1 /2/3 is VHF, otherwise this antenna would not have been needed. I highly recommend this antenna for any VHF application of 50 miles or more.

    Highly Recommended

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Living in the deep fringe area of the Sierra Nevada mountains, none of the local store brand DTV antennas worked. I ordered this 30-2476 to aim at Ch7 in Fresno, ca. which is shadowed by taller hills and about 50 miles away. Initially Installed it 5 feet above the roof, aimed it at the correct compass direction, and presto 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 DTV came in at the low end of the very good signal strength meter without any preamp. Also getting a marginal but usable UHF channel 51.1, 2 and 3 as a surprise bonus.
    The antenna is constructed better and stronger then any Winegard or Channel master antennas that I have seen in the home improvement stores, that also sell for more money.

    Decent antenna for low cost

    Overall: 4 out of 5

    I bought this antenna to replace a 5 element high vhf rated at 6.9 db. Channel 9 in our area was dropping on occasion. This mainly occurs during the summer months because of leaves. Although we did see a slight increase in signal strength, it wasn't what I had hoped for. It is very directional, as it should be. So directional, that I'm not sure why we didn't have better results. Anyway, a slight increase is better than none. As a new install, this is a bargain!!
