So back in the box for a return.

I tried to get a better antenna so that I could get more channels but it did not really work.
Cheryl L. Roberts
Also the signal was very poor that almost all the channels had poor reception.

I bought this after I tripped over my Terk antenna--parked in the middle of the room for the best reception--and bent it and drew blood on myself. I bought this one because it was small and wouldn't trip me and because it was on sale and therefore worth the risk.

And there is always a risk. Everybody's reception is different, and I have found that the highest-rated antennas--which work fine for other folks--have not worked as well for me.

I hooked it up and scanned the channels on my TV, and was shocked that this tiny lightweight thing picked up all the same channels as my two more expensive and larger amplified antennas. With my other antennas, my DTV reception is affected by movement in the room, but not with this antenna, which hides nicely behind the TV. I had to move the other antennas depending on which channel I was watching, but this one just sits there, hidden, receiving it all.

I just bought another one for my kitchen TV.

I couldn't be happier with this purchase. The HD programs and channels are beautiful to watch on an HD enabled tv. We don't have cable, so we wanted a powerful indoor antenna. This brought in many more channels than our old rabbit ears did (We live across the river from New York City). In addition, what I really love about it is that it is slick and elegant; it's a huge plus compared to other antennas that can be massive eye-sores. It's true that you do have to reposition it every now and then, but that's what you have to do with all indoor antennas. I wholeheartedly recommend this.

This amplified antenna starts with a small plastic-enclosed array that doesn't catch much signal to give the amplifier. The amplifier isn't strong enough to put out much, either. Together, they will probably do for strong signal areas. I am on the north side of a city where the broadcaset towers are on the south side. So I'm probably about 20 miles from them. The good thing about these antennas is that you may not have to move them once you find the right spot for placement. Watch out though for the cable positioning. It acts as part of the antenna.

What works better is the bigger non-amplified ANT1500M (wrongly described as amplified). It has long been established for antennas, that more metal picks up more signal. I use the ANT1500M with my 24db amplifier, which I purchased separately. All the stations come in with 4 out of 4 bars. With the ANT1450M, half or more of the stations have two or three out of four bars. The ANT1550M is supposed to be the bigger one with probably the same amplifier as with the 1450. You'd be better off with a better amplifier than the one that comes with these (amplified) antennas. I'm returning the ANT1450M.

We have a small TV in the kitchen which does not have access to our whole house antenna. I could not run a coax through the kitchen without having the coax being exposed and ugly or without spending significant money (not worth it just to hide a coax cable).

So we were using the T-shaped cable which came with the TV routed up through one of the kitchen cabinets. This worked pretty well for the analog stations, but digital channels reception was poor.

I measured that this antenna could fit in the back of one of our kitchen cabinets. I installed it and am very happy (and my wife is happy which is more important :)

There are about 20 or so digital channels in Chicago. The old unpowered T-shaped antenna picked up about 5 of them clearly. This antenna picks up all except 4 of them. It is a little irritating that it can not pick up all of the channels, but it is a significant improvement over the old unpowered antenna.

I also tried the antenna unpowered before powering it. Unpowered it picked up about 15 of the channels, so the amplification does indeed work.

It had the design we wanted so it would be more or less hidden (by placing on the top of a shelf or on the wall). When used with the ampflier the reception was very spotty, but WITHOUT the amplfier it worked perfectly, picking up all channels. A much better alternative to rabbit ears, from both the design and reception aspects.

Despite the manufacturer's hype in the product description, do not expect miracles from this or any indoor antenna. The combination of reduced height and intervening walls substantially reduces performance vs. an outdoor antenna. I tried several indoor antennas in this price range, in several locations. This was the best of them, but not perfect. What I found:

1. Not all digital signals are in the UHF band. In my area 2 of the 13 available are broadcasting in VHF, and they are major network (ABC, CBS) affiliates. VHF has a longer wavelength, and generally requires larger antenna elements than these, primarily UHF designed, antennas provide. Go to Antennaweb.org and check out the digital stations in your area. If any are VHF, you will probably want an antenna with VHF elements (aka "rabbit ears"). This is especially true if the "RF Channel" for a given station (also listed on Antennaweb.org), is 10 or lower. That said, the RCA antenna was the best of the bunch. It picked up the station on RF channel 12 flawlessly. The one on RF 9 was OK as long as the antenna was aimed out a window, and I didn't walk in front of it. None of the others could reliably pick up the RF 9 channel. For comparison, my old rabbit ears picked up both flawlessly, but didn't do well on the UHF channels.

2. All of the antennas I tried are fairly directional. All of the transmitters in my area are clustered pretty much in the same direction from my house, 210° +/- 10°, and 10 - 25 miles away. Lots of trees and houses in between, but no tall buildings. When I turned any of the antennas more than 40° off this 210° point I lost all but the two closest ones. The product description says you can lay the RCA flat. That lost me all but 4 of the stations.
