  • Q: Does this work for both VHS and UHF frequencies?  (3 Answers)

    • Best answerYes, this picks up both frequencies. Also, even though this is supposed to be a directional antennae, I am picking up stations that are probably 150 degrees from the direction that the antennae is pointing. The antennae is pointed toward an array of towers towards Miami, and also picks up signals (with clarity) from Palm Beach to the rear. I highly recommend this product

  • Q: Does this antenna pick up both VHF HI & LOW bands?  (5 Answers)

    By VHF 

    • Best answerNO, it does not support low VHF range, but you probably don't need low VHF range. The antenna's advertised range for VHF is the high VHF range only (broadcast channels 7-13) and for UHF (above RF channel 14). Note that nearly all TV stations have moved the actual broadcast frequency to either high VHF or UHF. That allows the antenna to be physically smaller and still receive a good signal since the required length of the antenna parts are inversely proportional to the frequency of transmission (the higher the actual broadcast channel, the smaller the antenna parts can be). The channel numbers they go by are no longer the actual RF broadcast frequency channels. So just because your local channel's call number may be channel 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 (the low VHF range), they most likely are broadcasting on a higher frequency (either high VHF or UHF). The only way to know for sure what frequency they are actually broadcasting on is to look it up. Go to www.antennaweb.org to check for sure. Then you will know whether you need an antenna that covers low VHF, high VHF, UHF, or some combination of the three.
