Product Description

Product Description

Terk indoor amplified hd-tv uhf/vhf ant.

From the Manufacturer

The high-performance HDTVa amplified indoor HDTV antenna from Terk Technologies is designed to capture both UHF and VHF signals (channels 2 to 69) while extending the reception range for all local HDTV broadcasts. The HDTVa uses an ultra-low-noise, high-gain amplifier with Terk's exclusive Dual-Drive Amplifier technology for clear reception of both distant and close HDTV and DTV stations.

Enjoy Full-Resolution Broadcasts

Suitable for those living in city apartments as for those in suburban homes, the compact HDTVa lets viewers experience HDTV broadcasts in full resolution. Designed for total reception versatility, the HDTVa's high-gain antenna array can be oriented either horizontally or vertically within its mounting base to achieve optimum capture of off-air broadcasts.

The antenna is engineered to receive all local HDTV channels, with an operating bandwidth covering both the VHF (channels 2 to 13) and UHF (channels 14 to 69) frequency ranges. Its highly directional log periodic UHF and precision VHF elements are designed to receive HDTV broadcasts with maximum signal strength while rejecting all or most interference.

Boost Weak Signals

Set the amplifier to high-gain mode to compensate for signals that are too weak or might otherwise be bypassed for a stronger signals nearby.

Easy Installation

Simplifying your installation, the HDTVa uses Terk's Power Injector to derive power via its coaxial connecting cable. The result? One cable is all you have to connect, making it easy to install the HDTVa atop or near your television.

Great Modern Looks

As an added bonus, the HDTVa is as exceptional in appearance as it is in performance: its curved, tapering, polished-aluminum antenna elements are mounted in a slim base with a contoured front that visually complements the curve of the antenna elements.

Customer Reviews

Very strong signal strength, probably ALL the channels.
Lon-Wong
I constantly need to move the antenna around in different directions when ever I change from one channel to another.

This antenna picks up stations well up to about 40 miles away in my area.

Having spent a bundle acquiring a Sony LCD HDTV and upgrading our Dish service to include its limited set of HDTV channels, we were anxious to see what an Over-the-Air Antenna might add.

In all, we tested 5, including the highly rated Zenith log periodic (about $40 at Sears), an amplified Samsung (about $99 at Best Buy), an outdoor Terk 32 (about $80 at Circuit City), our old roof mounted VHF/UHF antenna (circa 1985), and the amplified Terk HDTVa (about $50 at Radio Shack). The Terk HDTVa won hands down; no contest, blowing away the much touted Zenith.

We live in the sparsely populated, low hill countryside of Western Massachuetts. The THDTVa effortlessly brings in between 20 and 30 analogue and digital (incl hdtv) channels broadcast most from 12 to 45 miles away, and some as far as 65+ miles away in Connecticut. Some digital OTA channels actually come in more sharply than some of the (Dish) satellite digital channels.

This is definitely a keeper: a great value, gem of an antenna. So good, in fact, we are debating giving up our $50/month Dish service, putting $15 of that to Netflix to replace HBO, and banking the remaining $35.

I'm in SF Bay Area, about 30 miles from Sutro Tower. This was my first antenna and it worked out of the box for me. It is not perfect and I'm holding between 70 and 90% signal strength on all the majors with better reception than satellite. I can't compare it to any others but to say "it doesn't work" is insane. You won't know until you try it. This is not an all or nothing deal. It will work great for some, not at all for others and anywhere in between.

To check your specific situation, I recommend you try [...] Click button on first page, enter your full address and you will get a report unique to your home about how/where your channels are broadcast, including a map showing exactly how you should point your antenna. In my case, all my required channels were "yellow" and all in the same compass direction. If you are very far from broadcast source or channels are coming from many different directions, it may not work. However, with good return policy, it can't hurt to try.

I'm a first timer at getting OTA HDTV. This has been an experiment in progress for the past 5 weeks. I have gone through four antennas (they are all here as I write this) before finding something that's satisfactory (rather than tolerable).

I live around 25 miles from Manhattan, where the towers of most TV stations are located. I am also aware of the directional information from [...], and have experimented accordingly with its effects on reception. My apartment's windows all face north, while the signals all comes from southwest. I cannot get signals from where it comes from, and thus needed to get signals from deflections perhaps off nearby buildings and trees. It's a very poor circumstance for over-the-air reception, maybe just slightly better than being underground. Signals are weak, and are affected by weather. Stormy and windy days have shown effects at disrupting signal reception.

With this said, and without going into much detail, let's talk about the antennas. Now all these antenna have been tested with the same equipment, setup, directional adjustments, location, etc. etc. and have been tested through good an foul weather, day and night, to observe differences.

1.Terk HDTVa Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna for Off-Air HDTV Reception- After reading some rave reviews and high ratings at [...], log periodic types (looks like a fishbone) seems to be the way to go. I got the Terk HDTVa first, thinking that the amplification and VHF antenna should nail my reception problems at the start. However, after more than two weeks of fidgeting around ad nauseam (directions, locations, amplifications, different devices, etc.

Hello everyone,
I recently got the Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna because with hulu and netflix and so on I just did not want to pay for cable any more.

The video shows how easy it is to assemble the antenna, and hook it up to your TV.

I also try to show the not so good points of this product - how big it is, and the short antenna cable.

Overall, great product in my opinion - I hope you enjoy.

The problem with antennas is:

1. people misuse them

2. They are advertised to do more than what they do.

How to solve both problems:

1. Go to [...] to pick your antenna and where you should point it

2. Borrow a similar antenna from your friend before buying.

With that in mind, I'll specify what this antenna can do.

I live in Costa Mesa, CA, on the 2nd floor. The northern skyline is mostly open, another 2 story apartment and a tree is basically the only obstruction. Antennaweb reports that the stations are 42 miles away, orientation 333 deg. It also states that if I have no obstructions, I should be able to use a small directional antenna (yeah right?!). If there are buildings near by, then I would need a medium amplified or some BS, basically, forget it.

Another place you can go is [...] Read the section on Antennas. It will tell you that you need a different antenna for each different situation. In a city, the Sharpshooter, is probably better than this type. You also see the GAIN depending on frequency. Antenna web will tell you what frequencies you need, this help you with what gain on what frequencies. Also read the section on amplifiers. You don't want to amplify noise, introduce noise, or reflections.

With all that in mind, lets try small directional. I borrowed a Terk HDTVi, plugged it into a settop box in the bedroom. At first nothing. Then I pointed it north out the window. Amazingly, I received 60% of the digital channels. Then with the signal strength indicator on, I adjusted the positioning. Ended up NNW being the best, just as Antennaweb recommended, receiving most of the HD digital channels (I didn't count).
