Mine didn't work right out of the package.
J. Parker
Went camping and used the meter and it wouldn't pick up anything where we were even after turning the antenna several full revolutions.

I live in a rule area approximately 80 or so miles from the broadcasting OTA stations.

I rated this 3 stars mainly because it does what it says it will do but there was no 'wow' factor in that the TV does the same thing, and a little better.

I first set this up at home and set the signal to be sensitive because we get a lot of channels there. I set it at this level so it would pick up pretty much any signal available while out camping. Went camping and used the meter and it wouldn't pick up anything where we were even after turning the antenna several full revolutions. It would only go to level 1 and I could only get a couple of channels, and they would pixelate. Since this was the first time using the TV at this camp ground I just thought we were out of range for most signals so we dealt with that for a day until I decided to just do a new channel search on the TV. Lo-and-behold, after the channel search I ended up with over 10 channels, all with very good picture. Looked at the signal meter and it still showed only one light. Not sure why the meter didn't pick up on the signals the TV did but apparently the TV can do a better job than this meter. Got back home and the meter worked like it did before we left home.

So, apparently my TV can pick up on weak signals the meter cannot detect so that pretty much makes the meter useless in these areas even though we can still recieve the signals.

UPDATE 03May2013:
I rated this down to one star because this thing has been sitting in the junk drawer since we came back from camping after the first use. It will most likely end up in a yard sale or given away because it is pretty much useless since the TV picks up stations this thing doesn't detect. Just wasted money.

Recently, I upgraded my RV's Winegard Sensar III amplified antenna with the Winegard Wingman UHF booster. The result was great digital TV reception. However, the King Controls SL1000 SureLock Digital TV Signal Meter indicated absolutely no signal level on the 4 LEDs.provided. I have a TV tower and high gain Winegard antenna with a rotor for my house. The reception has always been great. I attached the The King Controls SL1000 SureLock Digital TV Signal Meter in line with my home antenna system. Only one LED on the signal meter was lit. I don't know how many dbs of signal level are required to light all 4 LEDs. But in my opinion, there seems to an engineering design problem with this product. I plan to order the Winegard RFL-342 SensarPro TV Signal Strength Meter through Amazon as an alternative.

Mine didn't work right out of the package. I am in a metropolitan area with towers all around. The red "on" light worked, showing it had power. But I got no blue lights as I rotated my antenna to tell me where the towers are. Note that the instructions say you can turn it off and leave it in line after use. NOT TRUE. Per tech support that ruins reception. You have to use a switch or take it off each time you use it.

They offered to send me a new one. But I am traveling, and they can't tell me which mail carrier service they would use, ie UPS, FedEX, or USPS, so I don't know where to have it sent. I would like to use USPS to general delivery, but they can't tell me they can do that.

But after reading all of the problems everyone else is having, I am just going to return it and find something else.

Setting antenna up for the first time on my roof I did not want to play the adjusting game. There are better complex devices that sell for way more then what this does. I bought a wingman antenna that has a built in amplifier. With a charge coming up threw the cable this device will work with out a battery. The white nob lets you adjust the sensitivity of the meter. I spent maybe 5 min figuring out the best direction for face my antenna. Paying a few bucks for this is far better then having to ask you wife to yell up signal strength off the TV. I think this would also be very useful if you travel and have a TV in a RV or something.

Out of the box this meter was inoperative due to one of the power leads to the battery clip was not properly soldered to the clip. Once this solder connection was made, the meter did provide an easier way to locate TV transmitter locations.

Not useful for measuring UHF signal in a fringe area, which is the reason I bought it. It appears to register only VHF, which made it useless for aiming my fringe UHF antenna.

Appeared to interfere with reception. Went back to manual tuning of the antenna. Could not determine optimal direction in urban areas

I'm not sure why all these people are having problems. It was an easy install, and it is definitely working properly. When I point it toward a known broadcast point, the lights come on correctly. Guess I just got lucky with this one.
