If you're thinking about pulling the plug on cable, the RCA ANT-800F is a great HD antenna for the Dallas metroplex. I live in west Plano about 32 miles away from the nearest broadcast towers. This antenna brings in 47 channels with rock-solid clarity. In fact, the picture quality is better than that I was getting through Time Warner cable!

I did a LOT of research before deciding on this antenna, but once I installed it, I found out how great it really is! Thanks to its compact design, it can be used in any neighborhood without concern over homeowners covenants. And it's easy to install.

The only negative I found is that the installation manual could be MUCH better. Several things are implied, but not made explicit. These include:

* It is best to mount the antenna outdoors as high as possible, preferably below the eaves.

* If it is mounted in an attic, you'll cut your signal strength in half just getting through asphalt singles. And if you have a radiant barrier in your attic, you'll likely get NO signal at all.

* If mounting outdoors, the mounting bracket is designed to be mounted on a vertical wall. Also, the back side of the antenna (where the coax connector and assembly screws are located) should not be pointed upward in that it the recesses for the assembly screws would collect water which could seep into the antenna module.

* The antenna MUST be mounted a sufficient distance from other metal objects such as rain gutters and attic vents so that these object do not attenuate the incoming signal. Experimentation showed that locating the antenna 2 feet away from the nearest gutter or vent is sufficient.

* The antenna should be located on the side of your house that faces the broadcast towers.

I replaced my RCA ANT1050 passive antenna with this model and got worse OTA television reception. I am 40 miles north of the TV broadcast cluster in Dallas, and the result was one extra channel from Forth Worth and the garbling of most strong channels.

It seems that a passive antenna is almost always better choice for digital TV, especially if most of the channels that you care about are already coming in strong. The best way to improve reception is to put a passive antenna higher up, like in an attic or on a chimney, not by adding an amplifier.


* The RCA ANT800 looks discrete and is unlikely to annoy your neighbors or HOA agent.

* Can be mounted on a flat surface or on a pole, either horizontally or vertically.

* Includes mounting hardware.


* Requires external power. My Kill-A-Watt says that it draws 10 watts continuously.

* Doesn't work passively.

* The installation instructions are ambiguous about how to orient the antenna. Parallel to the ground seems to be the best way.

While trying to troubleshoot my installation, I noticed that performance degrades if the power supply is too far away from the ANT800, like beside the TV receiver. The drop over a 40ft RG6 cable was noticeable, which is what you would need to put the antenna on a second story roof. My passive antenna works perfectly over the same cable.

First, let me describe my TV reception problem. I live in the urban core of a medium-size metropolitan area, so getting good TV reception shouldn't be too challenging. Unfortunately, I live in a condominium in a low spot (there's a rock wall behind my building that extends above my roof line).

I thought RCA ANT800 would be a good choice for me because it appeared that it would be versatile (indoor or outdoor), easy to install (not too big and comes with a mounting bracket) and it's omnidirectional. As I said, I live in the middle of the city, but all the broadcast towers are about 10-12 miles away, some north, some south and some west of me. So I needed either an omnidirectional antenna or a directional antenna with a rotor. Also, the local stations transmit on a mix of VHF low, VHF high and UHF, and the ANT800 is supposed to work with all broadcast frequencies. I've noticed that a lot of TV antennas only work with UHF or with VHF high and UHF, so be sure to check that before you buy any antenna.

At first I tried the ANT800 as an indoor antenna behind the TV. It picked up several channels, but I wanted all the local channels. Then I tried it in the attic. That worked better, but I still couldn't get the PBS channel, and that's the most important channel for me. My last option was to mount it outside, which is more difficult.

I opted to mount it upside-down from the eave overhang outside the back door. The main difficulty to that was with the mounting bracket. It has four screw holes in it, but they're too far apart to use on a single 2-by-4, so I had to screw it to another board then attach that to two 2-by-4s in the overhang.

This is the best purchase I have made in a long time. It is easy to install and picks up more channels than I expected. All the channels are crystal clear and the antena is not an eye sore. It actually looks pretty slick on the roof and everyone thinks it is some fancy satelite disc.
