I live in a rural area (about 50 miles from the nearest TV broadcast tower with all flat terrain, NO hills or mountains.) We tried three different indoor antennas and this one came in "2nd Place." This one did work much better than the new, flat square design without rabbit ears that claims you don't need to adjust. In our rural area, you do need the metal rabbit ears to get good reception. Another positive is that the UHF flat square with swivel in the center of this antenna is very sturdy and worked better than others we tried. And the 20 dB of gain was more than many other antennas we looked at. We learned in our rural area, the gain (signal amplification) is a must. However, the metal antennas (rabbit ears) are only 15" long on this antenna. No where on the box or in the owner's manual does it tell you how short these are. And because they are short, this antenna did not pick up as many stations as the other one we tried from another store that was 39" long. (Think electronics store with Lance Armstrong as spokesman to find 39" rabbit ears.) But if you are closer to the TV broadcast tower, this antenna will probably work great and the shorter rabbit ears make operation and setup a whole lot easier. And this antenna has a very sturdy design that will probably last a long time.
