I bought this antenna to replace an older Radio Shack VHF/UHF combo antenna. I've made the switch to digital only OTA TV and wanted an antenna that would bring in a stronger signal from my local stations, which are 30 miles plus away. This antenna brings then in great.
Installation was a snap. The antenna comes fully assembled. All you have to do is attach it to a mast. You may need to buy a new mast if you are using a rotator with a short mast. This antenna requires about 3 1/2 feet or so of mast to attach it to a rotator, unlike the 12 inches or so that a horizontal antenna would need when used with a rotator.
One caveat - The box it comes in is HUGE. Shipping costs may be high. I purchased mine locally and had to strap it to my roof rack to get it home.

**NOTE** This review was written based on the original 4228 antenna, not the 4228HD antenna.

Verified Purchase
I live in a subdivision and am surrounded by tall trees. Most antenna MFG's talk about the range of their product. That was not my issue. I needed one that received UHF and VHF signals, within a 25 mile range. I installed the Channelmaster 4228 HD in our attic and it works amazingly well. The HD picture quality for ABC, NBC, CBS, plus the local favorites is actually BETTER than the picture my cable provider was able to produce. We get 31 channels total, of which quite a few seem to be duplicates.
Now that the work is done, I would like to pass on what I have learned to help others who might be thinking about installing this antenna in a similar way:

- I bought the DataShark 70018 Cable TV "F" Compression Bundle. The crimper can handle RG6 and RG59 compression connectors. However, it only comes with RG6 connectors. Thus, if you only have RG59 cable to work with, buy the Compression Coax F Connectors RG59 from Valley. Works great!
- The antenna is pretty light. You can take the wing nuts out to detach the bow-ties from the main piece in order to get it through your access hatch into your attic in case things get tight. You will need 32" (diagonally) to get it through the hatch.
- The antenna comes with two U-bolts plus hardware to mount it to a mast. I used a 4' piece of bamboo as a mast. Make sure your mast diameter does not exceed 1 1/2".
- I used Channel Master 3079 Antenna Mount Kit to mount the mast to a 2x4 that I fastened between two rafters. The hardware that comes with the mount kit is pretty soft. Thus, use a drill bit that fits well and dial the torque setting of your drill down to avoid stripping the screws.
- I uploaded two pictures to support what I attempted to describe above.

I bought this antenna to replace my indoor Terk. This antenna brings in all the channels I received previously as well as about 15 additional channels reaching as far as 50+ miles away. I have it mounted in my attic.

If you are going to mount this unit in your attic be advised that you need a pretty large access entry otherwise you will need to disassemble and reassemble.

This antenna is good, but not without its faults. As others have said, there are a few questionable design choices that Channel Master made.

This is an 8-bay "bowtie" antenna. It's in the new style that looks very different from traditional TV antennas. Instead of being a flat horizontal "spiky triangle", these antennas stand vertical, and are a rectangle. There's a reflector grid in back, and the elements are in front, shaped like bowties. The reception is great, for UHF. Unfortunately, for VHF, this doesn't work as well. This antenna can pick up high VHF (Channels 7-13). It WILL NOT pick up any low VHF (Channels 2-6) stations at all.

With today's new digital TV stations, the displayed channel number can be DIFFERENT from the actual RF frequency number that it's being broadcast on! Even though the TV says "Channel 2", it probably isn't on VHF anymore. The only way to know is to look it up online, at a site such as "TV Fool dot com" or "Rabbit Ears dot info" or "Antenna Web dot org". (Sorry for the screwy spelling, but Amazon doesn't like putting direct links into reviews.)

Good:

High VHF. The reflector grid area, in the back of the antenna, is all one piece. This means that it's big enough to get the high VHF channels, Channels 7-13, without needing a separate VHF-only antenna. This is an important feature. A competing antenna, the Antennas Direct DB8, has the fatal flaw of having these grids split up into four sections. This means that it can't get high VHF, only UHF, so you'll have no VHF reception. This Channel Master antenna has no such problem. That's the reason I bought this antenna, instead of the DB8! The DB8 is built better, so it's a shame.

Directional. If you can aim it accurately, and keep it aimed, it's great.

Note: I _strongly_ recommend that you also read the comments here -- several contain much useful additional info and two contain links to pages quantifying some of the issues mentioned below (positive and negative experience and assessments), esp H. Ziesing and John B.
And there are comments reporting very positive experiences with this product, including one of 15 Dec 2011 reporting comparative experience with current and original models. Recognize that in the years since this review was written, (some of) the manufacturing and design issues might have been fixed, or the commenter may have a unit or situation in which those problems don't occur, or ?

Regarding the star rating (added 2011-10-19 in response to a comment): There are two perspectives. If I had rated this model relative to the universe of antennas -- normal case -- it would have come in much higher. However, I chose to rate it relative to its "family". Since it didn't seem to provide any better performance than its smaller, cheaper sibling (the 2-bay version) and being larger had definite disadvantages, I decided a harsh rating was justified.

----

This is not a review in the traditional sense because after reading reviews elsewhere and examining the product in a B&M, I decided against purchasing the antenna. Instead, the primary intent of this "review" is to alert potential customers that the earlier reviews here were for an entirely different product. The secondary intent is to provide a summary of information that I found elsewhere to facilitate your finding such sources.
Note: I cannot give links to the reviews I found elsewhere: Amazon policy--enforced by automatic scanning of review submissions--prohibits such links in the product reviews themselves.
