Great antenna, low price, works great.
Easy to assemble, hookup straight forward. There are 4 connecting straps that screw on to the antenna dipoles, screws included. Most of the little tubes do not connect, they are for phasing the signal to the main dipoles. The long tubes in the back do not connect, they reflect back to the main dipoles. Simply stick the aluminum tubes in the plastic holders like in the picture. Then four connector straps in the four pre-drilled holes in the main/closest dipoles. Done!
Antenna wire into the "IN" plug on the control unit. Control unit has two outputs for two different TVs. New TVs already have an ATSC tuner built in, no need for a converter box. The plugs are standard "PAL" plugs, can get them at Radio Shack.
The antenna mount is a maximum pole diameter of 1 1/8 inches. I used 1" water pipe in concrete up from the ground so as to not put holes in my roof. The pre-attached antenna wire is about 25 feet long, did not measure, but was plenty long to go into the house.
HDTV from major channels look just like cable HDTV on a big screen, but free!!!
