Customer Reviews

Just one or two channels could be obtained a not so good signal .

The build quality of the antenna is also excellent with a wide magnetic base which is very stable.

I bought this for my portable tv/dvd, but it works on my 60" just as well.

This antenna is small but mighty. It has much better reception if you stick it on something metal as the magnetic bottom helps. I had it on the stand beside the tv, not so great reception, then I stuck it to the magnetic lamp base and it was awesome.

Nothing bad to say about it. Worked at least as well as the previous one (which was an un-powered telescoping 3' one on a portable TV on my boat).

Have to say I was hoping to see a noticable improvement, given this one was powered and my previous one was not. Hard to compare them as my previous one is broken and I cant put them side to side. Im pretty comfortable this one was equal or better in my opinion.

Bottom line I was able to move it around to find a position where the picture was clear - which is at the end of the day, what you want. I did need to move it a little for different channels - just like I would with the old one.

For the price - it is not a bad choice, and to be honest, I have tried various TV ariels in the past and none have been super great, so this may be as good as you are going to get.

I bought this to use with a PC USB TV tuner card as the included OEM antenna hardly pulled in any channels. This antenna brings in all the Over-The-Air channels from Sacramento, about 30 miles from me, every bit as well as a powered RCA antenna I have on another TV. It has a pretty strong magnetic base for sticking it to window frames, etc, so watch out for any data disks or hard drives around this antenna. When my satellite TV went out, I hooked it into the coax cable, stuck it to the dish and watched OTA channels in HD throughout the house until my replacement box came. It also has the advantage of being small enough to fit easily in my laptop bag. All in all, a great little antenna.

HI. I bought a portable TV to take outside. It came with an antenna but I didn't get many stations with the original antenna. Bought this antenna and it works much better.

This antenna is pretty small and *not* amplified, but I really needed something that would be provide decent reception with a small portable TV, without needing to hold the portable at "just the right spot in front of the window". This "fat monopole" works well enough in my suburban area, usually providing reception of the major channels. Signal strength is improved if the magnetic base is stuck to a large metallic object, such as a refrigerator, to provide a "ground plane". I am pleased with the performance of this antenna.

Purchased antenna for an apartment in NYC area, wanted to set up a small Digital TV in the kitchen. Antenna has a low profile (small size) but gives good reception. I did not sue magentic base, but I did purchase this item also based on the flexibility should I need it. I did not regret this buy.

We have small TV in our bedroom that isn't connected to the satellite and couldn't receive the local channels (about 40 miles away). I hooked this device into the TV incoming signal connection and all the channels come in !

I got DTA 206, DTA 240, and DTA 250. For the price it was not a problem, I thought if anything did not work well, I'd send it back. They all worked on three different TV's, the antenna got 68 digital channels with a clear picture. I have an old analog TV and it got 68 channels with the converter box and antenna.

I read a review that suggested putting the antenna on a metal disc, I put them on metal coasters instead. for less than $25,00 for all three, I'd buy them again.
