The antenna arrived in great condition and within the estimated time frame. It was easy to installed and set up. It works great and haven't had any issues, even in Central Florida area with our daily thunderstorms. Would definitely recommend this to family and friends who are ready to cut the cable.

Upgraded my antenna.
I like that the cable that it came with was very long as I had to move the antenna to the other end of the room to pick up every channel and I got an excellent picture when I did
This is the only device that gets all the channels I want. It did not get the one channel I really wanted until I got it at least 20ft above the ground. Extended it to 30ft and got all channels crystal clear. Tried Channel Master, RCA, and the Antop with out the VHF ears, with no luck. There are a couple of channels way off in a different direction I could get, but it would not justify the cost of a rotator and amplifier. Only for bragging rights.Very happy, and would definitely recommend this antenna.
Big Boy (400BV) = Big Results
40+ miles west of all primary HD transmitters. Moving unit from ground floor window to attic gained 30 channels ! Adding VHF "arms" brought in weakest major channel (CBS). Total of 80 channels (but I don't speak Polish or Spanish however....). Got all the Chicago OTA biggies !
Full disclosure: my location is somewhat high (this is Illinois !), clear LOS (per TVfool reception map) and no immediate obstructions. I am using pre-amplifier included.
HD picture on primary channels better than all Web feeds !
I got everything that I was looking for from this product.
Tired of paying cable charges so I decided to look into antennas. Didnt really think they would work but ordered this one just to give it a try. Took about 10 mins to assemble and hook up to my tv. Just for a quick test placed the antenna in a corner near a window INSIDE the house. Result of scan: 28 channels. Ok, so now took outside and mounted on back of the house about 12 feet off the ground. Performed scan again...56 channels! Watched regular tv (abc, cbs, fox, nbc, pbs) in high def and 5.1 surround sound WITHOUT costly monthly cable fees! Amazing. I would definately recommend this antenna. It seems to be working great.
Cant go wrong here....
Look no further if you want an OTA antenna.....I put this in my attic and it is really doing a great job....I have several other amplified antenna's up there and this one works the best....Does a great job and I am sure it would do a lot better if mounted outside..Thinking about that but we get a lot of heavy winds here...It is a little pricey compared to the others but it is made in the USA and is very sturdy and well built and worth it....Cant go wrong....It is somewhat directional to get the best results....
Wow! It works when no others have!
WOW! I am so surprised! I have tried several antennas with absolutely no luck! I got this this morning and did a test run to see how it worked. I simply placed it in the attic and hooked it to one of my TVs. Did a channel scan and immediately got 16 stations! The fcc says I should get only six. Cable boxes go back today!
The antenna is heavy for what it is and is a bit on the large size but it works better than expected.
Camped in remote area of northern Michigan. I figured I'd probably pull 3-4 stations if I was lucky. I pulled 23 HD stations and am very pleased with product! A hint: I removed the old RV batwing from the crank-up antenna and mounted the Antop on the original mounting plate. A few minor modifications had to be done so the new antenna would mount correctly. I gained 5 stations after raising the old antenna arms. You don't rotate the extended antenna because it's Omni-directional. The added height is the reason for this modification.
No more bill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had an OTA that I purchased a few years ago and scanned over and over and couldn't get more than 4-6 channels. I used this one and was able to pull more than 60 channels on the first scan and it was just sitting on the floor inside my house. I imagine once it's actually in my attic, I'll be able to pull even more when I scan again.
This antenna did nothing more than my old $20 antenna. It almost brought in another set(7) of channels, but never could get them to come in correctly. It was a decent antenna, but not for $90.
