Easy to assemble and install!

Then we tried to turn the rotor to fine tune what was coming in and it would not move.

Everything you see that is black on the antenna is cheap stiff plastic.

I ordered this item July 3rd and after receiving it, found that because our cable run was over 25 feet, we would need at least one in-line amplifier to get it to work. We live about 45 miles from South Bend, Indiana, (the nearest TV stations) and live in a heavily wooded area. The old antenna just had a weak signal so we figured it was worn out and it would be a good idea to upgrade. We hooked up the antenna to the TV before installing it on the pole to make sure it was going to work. With it setting on a lawn chair in the driveway, we were able to get local stations pretty well. We mounted it on a pole and spent a considerable amount of time and effort to get this set up. We then hooked everything up and nothing worked. Online research indicated the cable run was too long. We ordered the inline amplifiers and waited...got them and installed them. Voila...the rotor turned and we got channels...lots of them from Chicago and South Bend. Then we tried to turn the rotor to fine tune what was coming in and it would not move. Banged on the pole a few times...and it turned and then stopped. We did this a few times and then lost the signal. It worked intermittently for about a day. More reading indicated that maybe we had the wrong amplifiers. Contacted Orca through their site and somebody from Titan Imports (??) responded. They sent me a link to the amplifiers I needed. I went to the link and they were a different gain than what I had initially received. I did the live chat to ask if these were different and was assured they were so I ordered these. They arrived yesterday...same exact ones I bought before that did not work. Called them and was assured that I must have had a bad one the first time and these would work. Well, they don't. So now we have four inline amplifiers...Read more ›

Joel Grant's review tells it like it is. I wish I had paid closer attention to his review before ordering. I have to agree with him that these 5 star reviews must be by people who sell this thing.

Everything you see that is black on the antenna is cheap stiff plastic. I am afraid to mount this thing outside because common sense tells me that the first strong burst of wind is going to snap this thing like a twig. I am considering remodifying it with plexiglass or anything to reinforce it first. It actually does seem to pick up ok and if you want an attic antenna it might serve for that, but where I live I will have to mount it outdoors to pick up the channels I really want. The signal booster looks like cheap Chinese made electronics. It does boost the signal some, but nothing to brag about.

The rotor is trash. I pushed the button twice and it stopped working on the third push. I manually turned it and it started working again for a few turns then stopped working again. Once I mount this on a pole the rotor will be useless when this happens because I will have to climb a ladder to turn it manually for it to start working again. The mount is plastic and the rotor case is plastic. After a few windy days of rocking around I have to think it's going to snap. 4 sets of the vhf antenna rods are not even connected to the leads and don't appear to suppose to be. They must just be there for looks.

I am going to play with this thing and try connecting the unconnected vhf rods, rebuilding it with something sturdier and forgetting about the rotor working. Maybe it will suffice until I can buy a real outdoor antenna. I have wasted $75 when I could have paid just a little more and got a good antenna.

This item was received in good time. The antenna is well packed and easy to assemble. It worked as advertized and picked up several stations very well. The rotor control was miss-marked where you plug in the antenna wire but I figured out that the labels were reversed. No harm done. The rotor worked as designed but the problem comes when you try to figure out where it is pointing at or try to position it. Each time you push a button it reverses direction. Unless you can see your antenna from the controller, it is useless. I will replace it with a rotater that has feedback so I can figure out each setting for different channels.

Let me first say that unlike several other reviews on this page, I am NOT affiliated with any company making or selling this product.... I cannot say the same for some of the other reviewers here who only review electronics which all seem to be perfect for them.

I purchased this antenna because I live 45 miles from our station towers in Indianapolis and this antenna had good reviews and claimed 20-30db gain. This claim of 20db VHF and 30 UHF is simply not true. I ordered a V21 UHF/VHF high gain antenna to compare this to before mounting a unit on the roof and being disappointed with the outcome. The V21 had about 13db gain on VHF and 15db on UHF. I first unboxed and assembled the ORCA AX-929G2.3. After the much assembly required was complete (15 min), I hooked up the amp/control and tested it out in my living room. The unit did not reach any stations in Indy, just local stations (adjusted gain control, direction, etc.). I unboxed the V21 and assembled it in 2 minutes (all one unit ready to go), and I received 10 channels from Indy from within my living room WITHOUT a pre-amp/amp! Hmmm, 30 db from the ORCA? I don't think so. Returned the next day (see below).

More impressions of the ORCA AX series:
Pros:
- features/gimmicks
- rotates on demand, but because it's not a very directional antenna this is not important to begin with..
- Compact
Cons:
- Everything from the antenna frame to the control amp to the coaxial wire is as cheaply made as possible. Compared to the V21, this thing is design to last about 1/10th as long
- Fake specifications right on the box. No way does this perform like a 20/30db antenna
- Designed to go together and never come apart. Good marketing strategy but thank god for amazon's return policy.
