Works for UHF not good for VHF
Posted by: ITHero from: Sioux City, IA on
PLEASE make sure you don't have VHF stations in your market before you buy this antenna. This antenna style is ok for picking up UHF stations but isn't optimal for VHF, that's not to say it won't pick up VHF but it probably won't.
I'm the Chief Engineer at a VHF TV station and I've had several viewers unable to get our signal with this antenna and after swapping it out for much cheaper rabbit ears they were able to get our station just fine.
Do a little research and make sure any TV antenna you buy is rated to receive channels 2-13 (VHF) and channels 14-51+ (UHF). For indoor antennas that is the old style rabbit ears with the hoop in the middle and can be had for much less than the fancy "HD" antennas. Even if your antenna doesn't say it's "HD" you'll still get a full HD picture. Also, make sure if it has a built in amplifier that it can be turned off or bypassed. Some times the amplifiers can cause more problems than they solve.
If you are in a UHF only market than this will probably work ok for you but outdoor antennas are a better way to go if at all possible.

I cut Directv and went to OTA TV. I live in a wooded area 19 miles away from the transmitters. First I tried the cheap RCA antenna for @ $16. It did work except for when it got the leastl breezy outside and the trees would move, then I got distortion. So then I bought the ClearStream Micron XG Indoor Long-Range Digital TV Antenna. I like the stand it comes with. I had to tape the RCA to the window. The ClearStream I put on the TV stand facing in the direction of the transmitters. Finally I have good reception! Plus the HD is excellent on those channels that broadcast it. I receive 24 channels. I highly recommend this antenna. But, if it gets stormy it will distort occasionally, but so did Directv. Now, everybody's situation is different. But if you buy it at Best Buy you have 30 days to try it and can return it if it doesn't work for you.

Nice antenna to get those local HD's
Posted by: Shrktank from: Imperial, mo on
I purchased this antenna as an option for when Directv fails and also to see if I can go without Directv in the
The antenna tended to be priced higher than I wanted to pay, but I have used the companies antennas in the past and loved them. They are also a local Missouri company so I like to support them.
I had some problems assembling the antenna with the stand. I will admit I did not read the install directions, but I feel it should not need to be done.
Also I decided I did not want the stand anyway as my plan was to hook it into the TV and place the antenna flat and under the TV stand or flat against the wall behind the stand. Both options have provide excellent reception!
Love the antenna

so we finally got fed up with the high price of cable for 500 channels that no one watches. this antenna has allowed us to receive anywhere from 31 to 45 channels in the local area. It s not a multi-directional antenna and must be pointed in the general direction of the signals. we chose to go halfway in between 4 different stations and get a decent signal. make sure to use the booster that is included as it will make a huge difference. the HD channels are supper clear and are in Dolbi Digital 5.1.

Got it out of the box, hooked it up to the television, and scanned for channels. Pulled in 13 digital channels that come in crystal clear! 2, 4, 7, 20, 50, 56, and more! Several look to be cable channels. We're shutting off the cable!

Great antenna in suburbs
Posted by: ColdInMN from: Maple Grove,MN on
Went to BB store for a different antenna (I had researched many before going in). I was told it would not work in our area. He suggested 2 brands that were working for others in our area. Most channels broadcast from a tower east of us, one is much further SE, and one north of us. We needed an Omnidirectional Antenna. VERY easy to understand instructions. We did not get NBC the first go round without the amplifier. Followed the instructions again and hooked up the amplifier and it worked!! WHAT AN AMAZING PICTURE!!! Better than any HD Pic we ever received with cable! And more channels than we have listed in our area (38 in all now). Paired with Netflix & Hulu (already have Prime and Roku 2) Better Picture, better choice of what to watch! And $84 net less cable bill! (Dumped Cable, only have internet) This worked for us, but check with your local store. They know what works in your area if a lot of people are dropping cable. I researched and decided on two antennas that would not have worked. I am very pleased with the knowledgeable sales people - if not for them, I would be pulling my hair out trying to install an antenna that wouldn't work into our home!! Back to the store for 2 more! Goodbye Cable!! Hello Simple Life!

I fired my cable company - why pay $100 a month more or less to get the local news? So, I started trying antennae and after 4 attempts this one worked. I now get the local news on 4 channels and a few more channels as a bonus if I'm interested. The signal is every bit as good as it was on Cable.

Easy setup, and good-bye to the cable company!
Posted by: Taxman97 from: Orlando, FL on
This was my first digital antenna purchase, and we are saying goodbye to the cable company this week! Easy setup as product was ready to go and hooked up within 10 minutes out of the box. Initial scan picked up 41 channels, and once I deleted the 10 Spanish-speaking channels, we are left with all of our local network stations in clear HD as well as some additional channels for no monthly costs! Definitely would recommend this antenna to a friend.

Serves us well
Posted by: JRDR from: on
We live in an area that does not get good satellite access and no cable service, so we needed to go with something over the air. This has been serving us well. Do not be afraid to call the customer service line, as they are extremely helpful. We called the 800-number to get advice on where to place it in the house, and they even helped us figure out how to set up the HDTV to find the signals. During storms, we occasionally get pixilations, but for the most part, we have a beautiful, clear screen.

Works well when used correctly
Posted by: captahab from: rochester ny on
Here's the deal folks. These antennas are made for the dig networks. Problem is they are NOT both UHF-VHF. To keep dig channels from overlapping, many cities alt between the two. Buy a cheap amplified set of rabbit ears and connect both antennas with a simple cable splitter. Got mine at Big Lots for 13 bucks. I got 15 chan but could not get the ones from the city I was closest to. After adding the rabbit ears I'm pushing 40 chan and am picking up Toronto and Kingston from the east side of Rochester NY
