From the Manufacturer

The SS-3000 Amplified Indoor UHF-VHF HDTV Antenna is Winegard's newest and best all-band indoor directional/bidirectional DTV/HDTV antenna platform. It's perfect for close-range, off-air reception in urban areas where HDTV and DTV signals bounce off buildings. Increase the reception for apartments and condominiums to receive digital broadcasts where line-of-sight to the transmit source is blocked. The SS-3000 receives and resonates indoor analog and outstanding DTV/HDTV signals up to 30 miles from the transmit source, and integrates an ultra-low noise amplifier design with an ultra-low noise figure for a clearer DTV/HDTV picture.

Winegard antennas are designed to deliver sharp, clear, high definition signal reception. At Winegard, our engineering department is dedicated to designing antennas that embrace both the latest technology and the aesthetics of any viewing environment. The SS-3000 installs in minutes; it's easy to use and simple to adjust.

Crystal Clear HDTV and Surround Sound

Cable and satellite television providers compress HD signals up to 50% between the original broadcast location and your home. Use a Winegard HDTV home antenna to receive cyrstal clear HD signal straight from the source. Special Scatter-Plane technology rejects multi-path to tune to the desired reflected signal and block the out-of-phase signal, for reduce noise and a better picture.

I'm a EE and know a thing or two about antennas. Never had a need for an indoor antenna until a friend moved to the city and had terrible problems with ghosting in the analog channels and pixelation plus stuttering in the digitals. After testing seven indoor models ranging from simple $10 rabbit ears to fancy $150 models I have to say that this is by far the best. Note that this is a very specialized antenna. It's meant for use in areas of strong signals but without a clear path to the transmission towers. It will not work well if you are far (lets say more than 25 miles) from your source, at which point I would recommend the Winegard HD-1080, which is also sold in Amazon. Not really an indoor antenna but small enough for a balcony or to hide behind plants, etc.

This beauty can also pickup high end VHF (ch 7-13) fairly well in my friend's area. It can get channels 2-6 but not as well as bigger rabbit ears antennas (this is not a flaw, but a physical limitation since the antenna is only 27" wide). This is important b/s after the 2/18/09 digital switch, some stations will switch back from transmitting in UHF to their original VHF channels. Check antennaweb.org to see if that will affect your city. Some stations have not announced that yet so it will not show in their list, but you might be affected in the future if you have a local station which is currently transmitting analog in the VHF and digital in the UHF. It's up to the station to decide if they want to switch back or not. The reason for this switch is that since they have to keep transmitting in analog until 2/17/09, they can't use their VHF channel for digital and are just using a free UHF channel until they stop analog transmissions.

I bought this indoor antenna because of all of the great reviews. We hooked it up and were extremely disappointed with it b/c of terrible reception. We do not live near any large cities so we figured we were just out of luck. I was about to return the antenna, when I happened to notice a THIN PLASTIC FILM on the back side of the antenna (the plastic part)!! It was like the plastic film on the screen of a new cell phone, etc. I immediately peeled it off and the antenna worked like a CHARM. We LOVE it and get 10-14 channels even in a smaller city. We have to adjust it now and then to get better signal, but otherwise it works GREAT. Here are a few more tips that we learned the hard way:

**Make sure the antenna is next to or near a window, ESPECIALLY if you live in a stucco house (like we do).

**Make sure that if you have those thin METAL blinds, that they are always pulled up so that the signal can get through! We just put a permanent curtain over the window that the antenna is in front of with the blinds always up.

**The antenna's plug is very heavy and would tilt out slightly from the outlet, which made the prongs slide out slightly. We would suddenly get terrible reception on all channels and were once again, VERY frustrated! We finally figured out that the antenna's plug-in did not stay firmly in the wall (actually, we have it plugged into a power strip). To fix it, we bent the prongs of the plug-in closer together. This caused the plug to stay firmly in the outlet. This has proved to be VERY IMPORTANT, as the prongs recently loosened up again and we had to bend them together even more. But after this is done - we get beautiful reception!

**REMOVE THE PLASTIC FILM ON ONE SIDE OF THE ANTENNA BEFORE USE!!

I've always had spotty reception (I live in a city in a concrete & brick building), and the move to digital hasn't been kind. After struggling for 4 months trying to get my favorite shows with the digital tuner I thought I'd give one more shot with one more new antenna before giving up and paying for cable (I've already had 3 previous antennas - none with very good results). You've turned a skeptic into a believer. It works brilliantly! All of the channels that didn't show up now show up with perfect reception. I'm a fan.

Verified Purchase
I've come to realize how much I really value the customer reviews that are posted on Amazon, therefore I am writing this review. When I first bought the Winegard SS-3000 I was a little skeptical as there were only two reviews at the time (both 5-star) and it was a manufacturer I hadn't heard of before. I did some more research on different websites and, at the time, found very few other recommendations...but the ones I did find were always with a very positive rating.

Now, I am no technical expert. I've been using rabbit ears for years and years, but after buying a digital-to-analog converter box I got really terrible reception of the digital signals. I live in a densely populated city with many buildings and lots of interference and one of the things that sold me on this antenna was that it works very well in these types of areas.

And boy does it! This antenna is amazing. I am now getting crystal clear reception on every channel...even channels that I could barely get on my rabbit ears. I can't recommend this product enough. It's like having cable-quality reception for free. And the best thing of all...unlike my old rabbit ears, I never need to get up off the couch to readjust the antenna whenever I change to a different channel. Highly recommended.
