This antenna is lightweight and well-constructed. Picks up more channels than the antenna it replaced. It's 60 mile range may not be adequate for many people, but it works perfectly for us and the price point is fantastic!

Impressive little antenna!
Fits right in!
This antenna has a 2.25 inch bracket that accommodate the 2" post of the existing Direct TV satellite dish. I only needed to disconnect the cable, remove the dish from the post, install this antenna, reconnect the cable, which is connect to the indoor TV. The let the TV to Scan all the channels from the air. That is all there is. No need to use the cable or the post that came in the box, just the antenna itself.
works great in the attic as a whole house antenna was able to pick up 112 channel using the antenna point app
Simple and works perfectly from inside my attic. I recommend directional over Omni directional. I use two antenna pointed in two different directions with a combiner.
The Little Antenna That Could
As a starter antenna with a 60 mile range for $15, this is it! It also comes with a "J" mounting pole and 15' of coaxial cable. I live in an apartment in NW New Jersey and have the antenna connected inside to a $90 TV HD amplifier with LTE filter (sold separately) and with (6'+6') of RG-6 Quad Shielded Coaxial Cable (sold separately). I receive "14" channels perfectly. Without the TV HD amplifier with LTE filter, I get "0" channels. I would definitely recommend this product with amplifier (sold separately) to a friend.
More Than I Expected From A Cheap Antenna
I was looking for an antenna that is not dependent on electricity. I am very pleased with this little antenna. I am getting most of the local channels in my area with little to no pixelation. I am using this antenna as an indoor antenna at this time, and the picture is very clear. Note: I placed the antenna as high as I can get inside my house, and I had to test for the best location and position in the room to put the antenna.
Great value gor the price!
At my location I got around 17 channels with it one time it picked up the pbs channels but they weren't watchable
Good starter antenna
If you live near a large metropolitan area, this may be just what you need to receive most channels. It is a UHF antenna. (You should not expect Walmart to tell you that.) Even UHF antennas receive some VHF signals, but they are pretty much omnidirectional for VHF. The three small elements in front (directors) are sized for channels in the 700 to 900 Mhz range which mostly no longer exist as TV channels. So, for most channels you will receive, it is a 2 element antenna. It has a built in transformer, so you connect an F connector cable directly to the antenna. Most antenna distance claims are worthless including this one. It depends on the height of the antenna and terrain between you and the TV tower that transmits the signal to you. The number of channels you receive are dependent on how many channels are being transmitted in your area. If you are disappointed in this antenna, you could buy a better one from Channel Master, a company that has been making antennas since before most of us were born, and whose distance claims are somewhat realistic.
I couldn't even put it together because 1 screw wasn't long enough and one of the rods didn't have a hole drilled in it. I returned it for refund.
