Style Name: Flatwave Amped (New)
We finally got an HDTV set this winter so I figured it's time to test out some of these indoor antennas and eventually cancel my basic cable which was $20 a month . My goal was to get major networks ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and maybe some public TV stations. Basic cable wasn't giving me much more than that anyway. Aside from this, I wanted an indoor antenna that can be easily concealed (outdoor was out of question for me).

I live in Rochester MN and towers are about 35-40 miles away from my house. So since most indoor antennas claim about 35 miles range I am on the outer edge of their reception.

My quest for a perfect indoor antenna started at the local stores. I ended up buying 3 of them locally and every one had to go back because I wasn't able to get local NBC affiliate which is broadcasting on VHF . Even technical support at that station told me that at my distance (35 miles) I have to get an outdoor antenna. My UHF stations were coming in easy with any indoor antenna but that VHF was always elusive . In one of my last attempts to keep the cord cutting dream alive , I sent an e mail to Winegard's global sales representative Grant Whipple. He responded right away with some good news. Winegard was just about to release a new amplified indoor antenna that was showing some great results. At first I was little bit skeptical but decided to give it a shot.

I received this antenna 2 days later and tested it right away. I hooked it up and BINGO I finally got that NBC station along with ABC, CBS, FOX, CW (this one I wasn't able to get before as well), PBS and some more public channels. This antenna is paper thin, and it looks like a laminated piece of plastic. It comes with 18 feet long coaxial cable, and an amplifier.

I tried the following items in different combinations and setup each antenna both amplified and non-amplified.

Antennas:
Winegard Company FL-5000 FlatWave HDTV Indoor Digital Flat Antenna -
Winegard FV-HD30 FreeVision HDTV Antenna
Mohu Leaf (Non Amplified)
GE HDTV Quantum Antenna - Silver (24775) from target.
RCA Simple antenna from Wal-Mart ANT112R

Combiner/Splitter and Amplifier:
2-Port Bi-Directional Cable TV HDTV Amplifier Splitter Signal Booster with Passive Return Path
CHANNEL PLUS 2512 DC + IR Passing 2-Way Splitter/Combiner

I really wanted to ditch DISH network, I felt with Hulu, Netflix and HD OTA TV I'd be set. My main goal was to find something that would get all my local channels plus WTVD 11 ABC which is in VHF. Any other channels where icing on the cake. I live in Cary, NC near RTP NC. Antennaweb and TV fool says all my local channels are UHF and 22 miles or less from me with exception to ABC WTVD which is VHF. I am using Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 PCI-E x1 Dual TV Tuner connected to my PC with Windows Media Center. I first tried each antenna individually in the same location and wrote down the channels they achieved and signal strength after rescanning. I then tried them in combination using the combiner and would add the amplifier to see if results were better. I found when I amplified the signal I would get channels from further away but then it distorted the local channels. I found the best setup to be from the Winegard Flatwave alone mounted on the wall in my office about 8 feet high. The antenna is a little bit bigger than the Mohu Leaf but produces all the local channels except for ABC 11 which is VHF. Not a single setup I tired could get ABC 11.1 on WTVD.

Recently our local cable company encrypted all of our basic channels. Which means now you have to rent a box from them for each TV. - I didn't spend a bunch of money on HD TV's with expensive tuners in them only to have to bypass all that functionality by renting a cable box. All of my TV's are wall mounted neatly with no cables showing, and as far as I'm concerned theres no room for an extra cable box (I don't care how small it is) If you're like me, you really don't care how many channels you get, you just want the locals to come through in HD with no digital tiling. This antenna did the trick ! I professionally installed it in my attic using high quality RG-6 cable, and fittings. I connected the cable to the power supply, and then to a high quality 4-way splitter, and finally to 4 of my TV's. I couldn't be happier. I ended up picking up 59 DTV channels from the suburbs of Chicago. But like I said before, all I really care about is the locals in HD, and they are coming in loud and clear without any breakup !

I received the Winegard FlatWave Amped Razor Thin HDTV Indoor Antenna from the company that markets this device, and was asked to review it. I told them that I would do an objective review of the device (what I liked and didn't like...) comparing it to the Mohu Leaf Ultimate Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna which I purchased on Amazon and did a review. They agreed, and thus, here's my review of the FlatWave Amped HDTV antenna.

The House:

My house faces East, and has a huge front window, with all the major towers playing hide n' seek with mountains and valleys. All the major HDTV over-air channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox) are accessible with the Mohu Leaf Ultimate; the furthest of which is 43 miles away with mountains in between.

For my test drive of the Wineguard FlatWave Amped Razor, I marked the exact placement I use for the Mohu Leaf Ultimate (found after about 1 hr of playing with placement it's hung 7' away from other electronics, about 1" down from the ceiling, and about 5" from the corner on an East facing wall with the large window opposite the wall). I found this to be excellent for pulling in all the HD over-air channels with the Mohu - 15 total.

The Amplified Tuner:

In un-boxing the FlatWave Amped I was struck by how 'razor' thin it really is! The one I received is opaque (see through with frosted look), with a pattern around the edge and throughout (as shown in photos uploaded to Amazon). The 18.5' coaxial cable is attached to the antenna (*different than the Mohu product which requires you to attach the coaxial cable) and runs down to an amplifier box with a USB port in the side.
