Product Description

Amplified high-definition tv reception for free local HDTV broadcasts. Most HDTV local broadcasts can't be received by either satellite or cable alone: You need an HDTV antenna. You get the most from your HDTV entertainment system with this off-air antenna. The high-performance Amplified HDTV Outdoor Antenna is a powerful yet compact antenna for both UHF and VHF local reception of channedl 2 through 69, so you'll be able to enjoy free local HDTV broadcasts. The Amplified HDTV Outdoor Antenna connects to your television via coaxial cable (not included). The HDTV Amplified Outdoor Antenna is engineered to receive 1080i HDTV broadcasts not always available on satelitte or cable. This compact, amplified, highly directional VHF/UHF anteena utilizes a log periodic UHF element with VHF rear reflector element. It's not always convenient to mount an outdoor antenna on your roof. Luckily, the Amplified HDTV Outdoor Antenna can be mounted anywhere, thanks to the included mini-mast bracket that will mount to a wall, the roof or even in your attic. The Ampified HDTV Outdoor Antenna will also mount on standard DBS or DirecTV dish masts.

I wasn't sure if I need a big antenna or not...the most distant station is 35 miles away...but one of the stations I wanted to receive shows in the Blue (on the antenna wheel) on [...]. The Terk HDTVo shows it can handle signals out to the Blue area...so I bought it. Took me all of 30 minutes to attach it to my Dish Satellite mast (mounted it just a bit lower than the actual dish on my roof) and run the RG6 to my old Cable TV hook up outside the house. I let my Dish 811 receiver do a channel scan and every local station that is available in my area was captured. I clicked to each station and all but one of them comes in at 89-92 on the scale of 100. I have one weak channel which hovers between 69 and 72...but the picture is perfect. I can now watch HD channels for free with this great little antenna. I had considered the Wingard Square shooter and the Sensor 2200...but neither of those claimed to get a signal from the mid/far range (blue on the little antenna wheel on the box). The Terk delivered on it's range..in fact..the station that is the weakest is actually closer than the channel that I was worried about (I think the issue may be one channel is using less broadcasting wattage and it may be a bit off axis from the dead-center of the antenna). The only caution I can give with this antenna is, it is very directional. That means...all your TV station transmitters have to be in a very narrow corridor for this antenna to grab them all. I'd guess if they were spread more than 20 degrees you may have trouble getting a strong signal on all the stations. I'm not done tinkering with the antenna yet. I may try and put a short extension on my dish mast and boost this antenna above the actual Dish to see if I can't increase the signal strength on the weakest channel.
Terk claims..the higher you go with this antenna..the better the signal.

Had my doubts on this antenna (due to it's size)as my home shows to to be 40 miles from the transmitter on [...] I received this unit and mounted it on my existing dish network mast in about 15-20 min no problems. The antenna comes with it's own mast simuliar to that of a dish so I simply clamped it underneath my dish. This antenna is a directional antenna so using the coordinates of the transmitters provided on antennaweb.org I proceded to point the antenna to the proper direction using a compass I picked up at Wal-Mart. I used diplexors to combine the antenna and satellite signal into one cable that runs to my living room dishnetwork receiver. I was suprised to find that the antenna received great signal strength! I had a signal strength of high 80's on most channels with one channel at 72. Due to the fact that I used diplexors I also bought a Terk inline amplifer that doesn't plug into the wall to help boost signal strenth. The amp made no difference in signal strength so I would advise to invest in a powered amp if you need more signal. I am satisfied and happy with this antenna which again is mounted outsided on my dish mast which is on my roof (not in the attic), using diplexors (which actually inhibit signal strenth) and pointed to the exact coordinates which are found on antennaweb.org (transmitter distance 40 miles and all in the same direction). The dish is discreet on the roof so it keeps the neighbors and home owners association happy.

Getting great HD signals isn't rocket science, but it does require the right equipment and proper setup.

The Terk HDtvO antenna is perfect for my situation. It's an amplified directional antenna which works great because virtually all of the local broadcasts come from the same place in the Twin Cities. Use antennaweb.org as a guide for your location.

When I first set it up, I could barely pick-up any HD signals. I thought I just wasted a bunch of money. Getting it right required a little patience and a couple of phone calls to Terk's technical support. Here are some tips:

1.) Use antennaweb.org to determine where you need to point the antenna. The farther away you get from the TV towers, the more important it is to point it just right. If you have a compass, use it. Changing the direction the antenna points a few millimeters one way or the other can make a difference. My TV lets me monitor signal strength so I can see the difference.
2.) The length of cable between the antenna and TV should be as short as possible. I'm running about 70 ft. with the power injector installed, which works great. When I first tried 100 ft. the signal was too degraded, yet when I added a booster it overpowered the signal which made the picture even worse.
3.) Put the antenna as high as you can go and positioned so that it has little to no obstructions (trees, buildings, etc.) in the direction it needs to point. I mounted my antenna in the attic.
4.) The power injector must be placed in line as close to the TV as possible and *prior* to any splitter, if applicable.
5.) If you plan to run the signal to other TVs (either HD or analog), call tech support for advise on where to put the splitter(s), cable run length and whether you'll need a booster

This antenna was easy to set up. Had it up in about 20 minutes. I live about 50 miles from the tower antennas and the range on this antenna is excellent! HD channels come in very clear.
