AmazonBasics Ultra-Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - 25 Mile Range

Both compact and easy to mount, the antenna works just as well in modern, spacious homes as it does in smaller urban apartments, studios, dorm rooms, and workshops. It can even be placed in your RV for TV reception from town to town or during a tailgating party.
The AmazonBasics ultra-thin indoor HDTV antenna makes it easy to watch your favorite shows—minus the messy cords and ever-increasing monthly expenses. Even more, with free, uncompressed, over-the-air television, the HD picture quality is actually better than with cable or satellite.

Favorite Channels and TV Shows
Because free over-the-air television includes a vast majority of the most watched popular shows in the U.S. (according to Nielsen), you won’t be missing out. The antenna picks up free broadcast High Definition TV signals like ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Fox, and more. From national TV networks to local TV shows, there’s only the one-time purchase of the antenna, then there’s no cost to you after that. Imagine, month-to-month TV viewing without an annoying contract or monthly fee.
Sleek, Paper-Thin Design
In addition to being exceptionally thin with a mount-anywhere design, this out-of-the way multi-directional antenna comes with a 15-foot coaxial cable that easily plugs into your HDTV (no power needed). Simply plug it in, mount, and scan for channels. It delivers full 1080p HD to any digital-ready TV. White on one side and black on the reverse, the antenna accommodates any home décor—or it can be painted for a more customized look.
Channel reception will vary depending on what''s being broadcast in your area, how far away you are from broadcast towers, and your surroundings (i.e. obstructions between you and the towers).

Comment added on 31 October 2013-
AmazonBasics lists three different antennas under one sales entry point but there are major differences in antenna size and reception. Selecting the right antenna will make a difference in the broadcast [OTA] signals your television set receives. My advice is begin by using this site
[...] [antennaweb dot org]
and follow the steps using the ZIP code for your location, and then choose which of these three antennas might work best for your local area.
I considered the Mohu Leaf products but decided on this AmazonBasics model because prior buys of AmazonBasics cables has proved their worth as a product line to me, saving 15 dollars over a similar Leaf was a plus. I used a zip code based search service to see how many channels are available in my geographic area, 18 in total. With the AmazonBasics amped antenna 16 is exactly what I receive after removing some duplicate non-HD repeater signals and learning two listed stations are private and coded. Excellent reception as I'm approximately 10 to 30 miles away from the originating signals.
Unpacking was easy as was connecting the cable to my television set, selecting channel signal type to "Antenna", and running "Auto Program". Bingo!, bright and clear picture and sound on the first try placing the antenna on an inside wall about six feet up.
I choose the amplified antenna because of my location and signal reception concerns, in hindsight I might have been able to use the AmazonBasics standard non-amplified antenna, but I went for the possible boost in reception performance for my location and distance from signals.
Very satisfied with antenna and results.
1. Line of sight is key.
2. Connections and wire (coax cable) can make—or ruin—a good signal.
3. Re-read #1 and #2 again.
Use any of the free resources online, like antennaweb.org or dtv.gov (and click on consumer resources, then reception maps) will let you know if you’re a good candidate for over-the-air (OTA) reception, and the quality of antenna you’ll need. In my case, I live in San Diego on a pretty prominent hill with little obstructions – no trees, tall buildings or anything else nearby that would impede line of sight (remember #1 above) towards the transmission towers. I have two sets of towers about 15 miles north-west and south-east from me, and another set of towers about 19 miles due south (in Mexico.. TeleMundo, oh yeah!).
When I got this antenna, I tested it by resting it on the front porch steps and got a full 30+ digital channels. On the porch. Fast forward a few hours and after building a simple base out sections of 2x4s and weighting them down with a cinderblock on the roof (didn’t want to deal with risks of leaks by drilling into the roofing), the thing is rock solid up there and gets me 43 digital channels. Placement is everything and although the antenna isn’t overly sensitive to direction, having it going cross-wise perpendicular to where the 2 main cluster of TV towers are got the best results.
Side note: I hooked up the included “amplifier” and the number of stations dropped to 33. YMMV. I say, try running the channel scan without it, then with it, and go with whatever works for you.
On the second point, clean, quality cable runs of limited distance and minimal “connections” are your friend. Don’t piece sections of cable together with splitters. Avoid connections wherever possible. It’s best to spend $12 for a good quality 25-foot cable, than to use splitters to join 2 or 3 sections of cable. And use a good quality cable, splitters (only as necessary), and you should get a good result with this antenna.
