Electronics can be very intimidating to a 69yr. old female, however ladies, i, with some help, and taking my time assembled HUB33 Antenna. step 1. make sure the wires are crossed (i had trouble seeing the word crossed ?), things ran smoothly after my son-in-law told me wires needed to be crossed, study each diagram carefully, the
mast clamp goes on side of main boom.
step 2 it took 2-3 tries before i realized the bowtie(bottom) fits on lead in terminals, i donot have a clue what a isolation network is, but i made sure they
pointed like picture in manual, put (2) screws in wing boom. you are not suppose to unlock elements after locking into position!
Step 3-CONNECT COAXIL CABLE-i finally saw what the little white plastic thing (strain-relief tab) hanging down was for,thread your tranformer through this tab;
step 4 i put antenna on pvc pipe, secured pvc pipe and antenna to my bannister.
I just kept going back to directions, looking at pictures and trying to assemble correctly.......well, guess i got it right....now i get 25 stations out of Atlanta which is 60 miles from me.
hope this helps more than it confuses women who have to put antenna together
or have no tv

This is a perfect antenna for people live in Cupertino, CA. Not too big (easy to assemble and install) and pick up good signal from transmitters in San Francisco (e.g. Sutro Tower).

I tried to install RCA ANT751 antenna before. All good except one channel (26.1) important to my wife does not have stable reception (I live near intersection of Bollinger and Wolf Rd. Cupertino).

After switching to HBU33, all channels works great (scanned 69 channels when antenna points to 300 degree). I put a 6 feet mast by my chimney on the 2nd floor roof. No need to install pre-amplifier. I don't see difference with or without my pre-amplifier (RCA) installed.

I have tried all sorts of indoor antennas but none of them worked. I am about 45 miles from broadcasting stations and I could not get ANY of them using indoor antennas. Then I decided to get outdoor antennas and use them in the attic. I did try two and both were good in getting ABC, NBC, and CBS stations but none of them could get Fox and ETV. I almost gave up and decided to reconcile with cable. Then, I read the reviews here for HBU33 and gave it a shot. It took me about one hour to unpack and install it in the attic. I just attached it to a broken wooden stick and squeezed it between two boxes and pointed in the general direction of broadcasting stations. I was pleasantly surprised to see all available stations in great HD quality including the Fox and ETV in the lineup.
I do defiantly recommend this antenna to every one who has difficulties in receiving long-range stations.

For a long time now, I have been wishing to stop paying for TV. Why should I when the waves are bouncing all around us in the atmosphere?.
I just did not think that an indoor antenna would be powerful enough and I would have to buy one for each TV.

At a friends house a month ago I saw this antenna in action, with cystal clear free hi-def for the local channels on his TV.
I needed no more convincing.

The item arrived promptly as described. Of course you will have to buy a mast to mount it and a ground clamp and wire to ground it. No fun when lightening travels to your TV.

The antenna was easy to assemble and is extremely light. Before hooking it up outside, it was picking up channels in my basement!

This is a keeper; coupled with Netflix for movies and HuluPlus for TV shows no need for cable/satellite. Die-hard DVRers can subscribe to TiVo or fork out $350 for ChannelMaster.

I KNOCKED DOWN 1/2 OF MY OLD TV TOWER AND LEFT JUST ONE OF THE 3 POSTS STICKING UP HIGHER THAN THE OTHER 2, ABOUT 5 FOOT ABOVE THE TOP OF MY HOUSE. I THEN ADDED A 6 FOOT PIECE OF PIPE TO THAT, ATTACHED THIS ANTENNA ALON WITH THE RCA TVPRAMP1R Outdoor Antenna Preamplifier , GOT ME 25 FT. OF COAX FROM K-MART AND NOW GET 28 CHANNELS. I'M A GOOD 40 MILES SOUTH EAST OF TOLED,OHIO AND GET DETROIT CHANNELS NOW!.....ABOUT %50 RECEPTION POWER BUT THEY DO COME IN.
BEFORE WITH AN INDOOR ANTENNA I TRUELY ONLY GOT SAY 6 GOOD CHANNELS.

IF YOU GET THIS ANTENNA AND IF IT'S A GOOD 50 FEET OR MORE AWAY I RECOMMEND THE PREAMP. ALSO.................................................MAKE SURE IT'S POINTING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION......THE SMALL END IS THE FRONT...PEOPLE WHO HAVE LEFT BAD REVIEWS MAY HAVE IT TURNED BACKWARDS ! THE LONG ELEMENTS GO TO THE REAR OF THE DIRECTION WHERE THE TRANSMITTERS ARE BROADCASTING FROM. MY NEIGHBOR POINTED IT OUT TO ME AFTER I ONLY WAS GETTING 37%....TURNED IT AROUND (DUH)....68% SOLID ! BETTER ON OTHER CHANNELS !

P.S. WHEN I SAY SMALL IT IS COMPAIRED TO MY NEIGHBORS. IS IS A GOOD 6 1/2 FEET LONG BUT ONLY SAY 3 FOOT WIDE. JUST ASSEMBLE MOST OF IT ON THE GROUND AND LEAVE IT FOLDED UP TILL YOU GET HER UP THE LADDER ON THE ROOF.

This antenna was easy to assemble, and very sturdy. I live in an area where winds in excess of 60MPH are common, and I was concerned that whatever I might put up had to handle these fierce winds. This antenna does so without a problem. I am over 40 miles from the broadcast antennas for the LA area, and I was pleasantly surprised to see I recieve over 135 channels (prior to any attempt to optimize the aim). I have this antenna attached to two TVs, an external TV tuner (PVR), and the FM tuner on my stereo. No amplifier attached. I am very happy with this purchase, and would heartily recommend this antenna. While this antenna is for high VHF (channels 7-13, all UHF channels), with the digital TV broadcast band, all channels come in with crystal clarity (channels 2-6 are now broadcast on the UHF band).

Cut the cord or dish with this antenna. I cut direct TV lose over a year ago, and do not miss it. I now stream from internet with a roku, and I found myself saving money, with more choices. You have to rethink and realize the internet is your DVR! This antenna pulls in 27 channels in my area and check yourself , I bet like me local channels is what you watch, news weather Etc. With Netflix and Hulu Plus all the channels on roku I have thousands of choices that I decide what's on TV. Saving Money on top of that. Spend a little to save a bunch.

I bought the Antennacraft HBU33 for my in-laws and I'm glad i settled on this particular one. I was torn between the RCA ANT751R and the AnetnnaCraft HBU33. With a previous indoor antenna they had, they could only bring in 25 channels. After installing the HBU33 in their attic with a preamp, pulled in 41 channels. Now they don't have to jiggle and move their antenna like they had to before to get certain channels. With the price and the performance of this antenna I am extremely pleased and I know my in-laws are too.

The AntennaCraft HBU33 Antenna works a lot better than I expected. As of right now I get 42 channels and currently about 50 miles away. I have the antenna about 20 feet off the ground on the side of the house. It was really easy to put together, took about 20 minutes. Kicking myself for buying all those indoor antennas and wasting money like I did. This is a great antenna that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone in need and would buy again if the need arises.

Antenna pics up stations up to 80 miles from my home. Only have it 20 feet off the ground! I have a pre-amp and a signal amp. Went from 2 channels with a flat indoor antenna to 35 channels. I would recommend this antenna to anyone with a little motivation and skill. It is not omni-directional and does need to be positioned to acquire a constant signal. Do some research on all the supplies needed before purchase. Once again excellent antenna!
