The power supply that rotates the antenna and amplifies the signal was dead out of the box. Took a look at the guts, and it looks like it was soldered by a ten year old. (perhaps it was!)
Had this not been the case, I would have given this 5 stars all around.
As another reviewer noted, have your reading glasses handy to read the instructions, as the print and photos are microscopic and the English terrible. If WM gets these back in stock, I'll order a replacement and return the DOA one. If not, I'll aim it manually and for $25 still consider myself ahead of the game. I did hook it up, bypassing the power supply that drives the motor via the coax wiring, and was able to get the UHF band stations just fine. Couldn't pull the VHF stations in, but then I'm in a hole so that wasn't unexpected as the antenna was at ground level for this test.
1) Plug in the power supply and ensure it lights up before assembling the antenna.
2) All you need to assemble this is a Phillips screwdriver.
3) Be sure to tighten the already installed screws as well. I found several of them barely started.
4) Also note that two AAA batteries required for the remote are not included.
5) The info in the instructions is correct, but reread each step several times to be sure.
