Quality and performance are good.

This allows the reflector to wobble and there is no way to tighten the rivet.

I get an observed 80% signal strength with very rare fades.

I bought this antenna for the purpose of receiving a single TV station: WTNH in New Haven, Connecticut. WTNH broadcasts on physical channel 10. The effective radiated power is only 12.4 kilowatts in my direction, and I am 48 miles from the transmitting tower on a line of sight. At my location, TV Fool rates the noise margin at 28.3 db and the power at -62.5 db.

Most of my channels are received via a Winegard HD-9095P UHF antenna: WINEGARD HD9095P UHF High-Gain 39-Element HDTV Antenna. The 9095 has the unusual feature of having a VHF input to its balun. I have 12 feet of RG6 quad shield from the YA-1713 to the 9095, then 100 feet of RG6 quad shield from the 9095 to my Panasonic plasma. The YA-1713 is mounted only eight feet above ground level inside of a detached garage. The YA-1713 "looks" at WTNH through an exterior wall consisting of clapboards over two by fours. My detached garage does not have insulation or an inside wall. I'm not using an RF amplifier.

The result is a perfect, glitch free picture. Of course, the trees don't have leaves yet here in Western Massachusetts. I'll post back later if the reception degrades when the leaves come out.

I've given the YA-1713 five stars for its extremely impressive performance. However, I do have concerns with its build quality if you intend to use it as an outdoor antenna. First, the rivet that attaches the reflector to the boom was loose on arrival. This allows the reflector to wobble and there is no way to tighten the rivet. Second, two of the latches that hold the elements open were damaged just from unfolding the elements gently during assembly.

This antenna is only high-band VHF (7-13, or 174-230 MHz). It cannot receive low-band VHF or UHF. There are, I believe, only 37 stations that operate in the low-band VHF (2-6, or 44-88 MHz). If you live in an area that has one of these, you'll need a separate low-band antenna and a signal combiner, or an all-band VHF antenna. You'll also need a separate UHF antenna if you want any UHF stations (14-51, or 470-698 MHz). Keep in mind that a station may display as one channel but actually broadcast on the frequency for another channel, possibly in a different band (for instance, KMTV displays as channel 3, but the signal is on channel 45, UHF).

This antenna is particularly useful if you live in an area where UHF and VHF stations are in different directions, such as south-east Nebraska. All the TV stations in Omaha are UHF, while all but one in Lincoln are VHF. By using separate antennas, aimed in different directions, you can pull in stations from both markets.

I was a bit surprised when I got this antenna. It was much longer than my old antenna, but also a lot narrower. At first I thought I'd been sent the wrong thing, but then I remembered my radio training: higher frequencies use smaller antenna elements. My old antenna was all-band VHF, so it had to have long elements to handle the low-band frequencies. Since this antenna handles high-band only, the elements are much shorter (though nowhere near as short as a UHF antenna).

I'm very impressed with the range on this antenna. With an amplifier, I can pull in KLKN in Utica, NE, 63 miles away! I generally receive 4-5 bars out of 6 in Windows Media Center, and the picture is crystal clear with no drop outs or glitching. If you live close to the transmitter, this antenna is definitely overkill, but if you live out in the boonies like I do, it'll pay for itself in savings on satellite fees.

In the Los Angeles market, High Definition has been separated into VHF and UHF bands.

My configuration includes the following:

--Winegard YA-1713 VHF antenna
--Antennas Direct 91XG UHF antenna
--channel master 7777 pre-amplifier
--channel master antenna rotor

With all four items in use, I can pick up all (HD and non-HD)available channels, considering antennaweb dot org website lists virtually nothing to be available for my home address. Though I don't live more than 30 miles from the Mt. Baldy transmitters, I have lots of hills around my house, including a very tall (75ft +) tree in the exact direction of the transmitters.

If you live in an area where TV signal could be a problem, then, start with antennaweb dot org, and determine what they think is available where you live, then go from there.

Majority of the cities only need a UHF antenna but if happen to be in an area where part of the channels are on VHF, I highly recommend this antenna.

Using an antenna rotor was very helpful, it will rotate your antenna's direction one degree at a time, which could make a difference in getting the signal. In my case, it proved to be an invaluable necessity.

Use RG-6 cable instead of RG-59 cable with your antenna.

Since you are considering installing an antenna for TV viewing, as a sidebar, I would like to also recommend a channel master DVR that works off antenna signal. It will record TV shows for free, in high definition, WITHOUT the need to make any monthly payments.
