This antenna has been a good buy for the most part. I live about 40 miles line of sight from our transmitters and I scanned 29 DTV channels including 3 that I have never ever gotten. The key is to select a good DTV Converter first. Position the antenna as close to a window as possible. I did not think this antenna would work but it does.
Antenna does not have enough strength for receiving DTV thru converter box. Causes DTV to stall and you can't watch a whole show for anything . Spend all your time playing with the antenna. No matter how hard you try to get a signal.. it won't come in any stronger for my set than 20%... have to buy another one now.
Not so great
Sometimes the picture comes in really well. Then 5 minutes later there is no signal and you have to adjust it again. I've done everything recommended (placed by a window and such), but still can't get a consistant signal through a whole program.There is always a slight buzzing noise in the background. I am going to have to get a different one.
Not worth it!
I bought this "amplified" antenna at the suggestion of the manufacturer of the digital converter box that I had. It did nothing to improve the signal and worked no better than the non-amplified RCA antenna I already had and paid half the price. I have returned this item to WalMart. Not worth the hassle.
