We used TV fool to see what that site thought about receptivity here and it wasn't encouraging. Our best shot looked to be out to the Albany, NY area - 42 miles away and over on the other side of the Taconics. TV fool suggested aiming an antenna's boom at 277° and, basically, praying. Other signal-strength-estimating sites were even more discouraging. But you know, this antenna was only $33 or so and we thought we'd give it a try. I mean, our satellite tv service expense continued to inch upward in cost and the selection wasn't getting any better.
I was underwhelmed while unboxing the antenna. VERY lightweight construction - much plastic with a thin metal overlay on the flip-up plastic parabolic reflectors. Stout plastic, though.
Assembly was straightforward. Use ten small screws to attach the five vibrating elements to the boom, attach the boom to the body with one screw. Flip out one parabolic reflector and then use four screws to attach the plastic-housed electric rotor to the plastic mast mount and then attach the rotor/mount to the body with four more screws. Five minutes.
Got some v-mounts for up near the eaves and a four-foot wooden dowel to use as a mast. Mounted the antenna to the mast and then scabbed out the satellite tv coax to use for the antenna. (The satellite company won't want the cable back and the satellite antenna's location was conveniently right next to where I was mounting this antenna.) Used a compass to aim the boom at 277°. Cleaned up and went back into the house.
Made a cup of coffee. Ruminated about: The narrative history of poor-to-nil receptivity here; The surrounding mountain ranges and lack of direct sight line to Albany; TV fool's estimate of poor receptivity here; The cheesy, lightweight plastic-y construction of this unit. Oh. Well.
Re-connected the basement coax through to the ground floor telly, plugged in the preamp and attached the antenna and tv coax, then turned on the telly. NOTHING!
Thought. Thought again. Oh, NO! I had the tv looking at "cable" channels. I don't HAVE cable. Looking fast at the tv owner's manual (a Samsung flat screen, fully hdtv-ready) I found the section on "Air" as a source. Air? Huh. Whatever. So. tv-menued over to "Air" and did a scan. 3-5 minutes later the scan was complete and I was looking at a menu of 15+ CHANNELS!
O.K., so not all of them came in 100% with the antenna pointed out to 277°. But WOW. Several stations are coming in crystal-clear and others are acceptable with some rotation of the antenna. Watching hockey right now!
I. Am. SOOO. Happy! Goodbye satellite company. With some DSL for internet and an internet box for streaming, if I want to watch something it's available.
Downsides: Well, this antenna will underwhelm you with its lightweight construction. (Although, antenna-mast-weight-load wise that may be a good thing.) Aiming is not as precise as I'd like (a bit of slop in the aiming motor). One cannot see where the antenna's "pointing" while in the house - there's no indication on the pre-amp/rotor-sending unit. And one final downside: Makes me think about what might happen with a nice Yagi, a preamp and a good antenna mast rotator with an indoor degree-of-compass indicator.
If you've been looking at outdoor antennae for hdtv, thinking about cutting the cable or sinking the satellite, go ahead and buy this nifty, lightweight, powerful little unit. It's pretty cheap. It works. It's very unlikely that you'll be disappointed.
The antenna took less than a week to arrive. It is made out of aluminum and a tough rigid plastic. Assembly was easy requiring only two phillips head screw drivers, a jewelers sized one and a standard size. (You'll need the small jewelers sized screw driver to attach the aluminum flanges to the long aluminum bar.) The only time I looked at the instructions was to make certain I was using the proper screws in the correct holes, total assembly time was less than 15 minutes.
One modification I did have to make was to reduce the interior of the antenna's plastic mount by sanding it in order for it to fit our antenna mast. I used a Dremel with a drum head sanding pad.
So how well does the antenna work?
In a single word outstanding! It not only met my expectations it exceeded them. The quality of the signals I am now able to receive are two to three times better than our older, much larger antenna. I am now pulling in one station that is 140 miles away and another which is 80 miles distant. Our closest local station is 45 miles.
The day I installed it, the antenna got the first major test of its life when we had a storm blow in that was packing winds of 50-60 miles per hour. (We received a half inch of rain in less than 30 minutes.) I expected to find my new antenna at least partially bent out of shape. It passed its first test with flying colors and continues to work extremely well. Someone put a lot of thought into the design of this antenna by including holes in the bottom of the plastic that allow any accumulated moisture to drain away.
The only thing I wish this antenna had was a way to tell which way it is pointing. There is no indicator on the power box. Fortunately, I am able to look out my window and see which direction it is pointing, making adjustment, at least for me, easy. However, I did open up the assembly that contains the motor to see how it works. While the antenna does have 360 degree rotation, it has an internal physical "stop" (made of plastic) that keeps it from continuing to rotate beyond 360 degrees. Which when you think about it is a necessity since you would end up wrapping the antenna wire around the mast. By the way, be sure and leave enough "slack" in the cable so the antenna can rotate fully.
Here's another hint for you, if you need to purchase a cheap but high quality antenna mast use galvanized fence tubing. It's almost a perfect fit for the mount on this antenna, though the plastic mount does require some internal sanding.
If you need a taller antenna (as I did) buy the 10 foot long tubes. They are specifically designed to connect by sliding one end onto the other. My antenna now stands at the top of two 10 foot sections of tubing at a height of 16 feet. I sank 4 feet of the tubing into the ground. And just in case you're wondering how I did that. First, I heavily watered the ground the night before and then used a post pounder to drive the first 10 foot section. I was, however, able to get it to go in the first 2 feet by simply pulling on it and using my weight.
And just in case you are wondering. Yes, the metal tubing will hold up to the weight of 35 pound post pounder with very little distortion of the metal, just be sure and sink the thicker end of the tubing into the ground. One other advantage to using two pieces of tubing instead of one much longer piece is for maintenance of the antenna. It will be a simple matter if you ever need to take it down.
Hint: If you are going to install a mast higher than 10 feet, you will need to anchor it against something solid at about the 10 to 14 foot level (I used the roof of my house); otherwise it will sway violently in a wind storm. Brackets for doing this are available at any hardware store.
I mounted the antenna in the attic of my townhouse and now I get 45 Channels. Of the 45 channels 36 of them are perfectly clear.
I am very pleased with this product. For the price, I don't think I could have found anything better.
Update: After looking through all of the channels to see exactly what I got, I realized that I am actually picking up a few channels from Baltimore MD which is approximately 60 miles away.
I mounted this on my roof in my old DirecTv mount. I used an old clothes hanger rod that barely fit into the antenna base. I then wrapped a lot of duct tape around the mount end to ensure a snug fit. I then drilled a hole through both the mount and the rod and placed a bolt through both. I hope that it will keep it from moving on the axis and from flying out of the mount all together. So far so good. In one heavy wind storm I noticed that the antenna had shifted about 90 degrees from my original point of aim. Thankfully, it was easy to re-aim using the motor in the antenna and I got to remain on the gound. Bonus points for not losing any of the channels despite being pointed the wrong way.
Receiving the channels it should
It does not feel like it will last more than 4 years on my roof with the flimsiness of the build materials.
