I am putting the antenna in my attic but did not have time to complete the install.

I live in a heavily wooded area with 60 to 80 ft Pines and many 30 to 40 ft Oaks. I am 32 miles from the Houston Antenna farm and have never been successful with indoor antennas (they just were not good for the distance).

I took the antenna outside and set it on top of the corner of my 7ft wood fence about 2 feet from the wall of my house. I went back in the house and set up new Tivo. To my surprise it found 69 channels (all while sitting on a wood fence - 7ft high in heavy woods 2ft from a solid brick wall that is in direct path to the antennas).

Signal strength was 60% to 80% on most all the channels and I am not using a pre-amp with this antenna.
There are still two or three channels I want that are not coming in.

Very impressed with the reception I received.

Here is hoping that an attic install on 2 story house will bring the signal closer to 100%

--Update--

I now have antenna in attic. It puts antenna about 25 to 30 ft above ground. Reception went up to 80 to 90% on all channels but one. The one channel kept going from 80% to 20% and back constantly. I knew the signal comes from same antenna farm as the rest of the Houston Channels and power output about the same.

I went back to attic and realized that my placement had some AC duct just a little to the side of Antenna. I moved the antenna forward about 2ft and was able to get rid of what I suspect is multipath interference with the signal. The one station is now solid at 85%.

I am able to now receive all local stations in a densely wooded area. The Antenna is excellent and paired with a good pre-amp like the winegard ap-8700 I have solid signal to everything local.

Seriously, this antenna is an anomaly of a product. It is extremely inexpensive on one hand, and works beautifully on the other. Not many products can claim both attributes. I have this in my attic, and with a signal amplifier (23db)it outperforms the other antennas I tried that were mounted OUTDOORS. I suspect that if this thing can't get reception in your area, nothing can. For half the price most are paying monthly for cable tv, you can get network tv for free....FOREVER!

Now its not always peaches and cream. Sometimes the weather will have an impact on your signal, and there is nobody to call if you lose reception (customer service can only tell you how to aim the antenna, but cant fix a problematic reception issue), but if your like me and cant afford even basic cable tv, then this will be more than adequate for network tv. In other words, if you want a way to kick the cable bill to the curb, and can deal with occasional glitches in reception, then you have found your antenna. Don't hesitate, if your in the market for an antenna, this is the one!

One more thing. If the stations are farther than 50 miles from you, it might be better for you to get the next model up in this line.

I wanted an antenna that worked well without an amplifier and this one works great. I'm 50 or 60 miles from Indianapolis stations and I get perfect reception. This was money well spent! Also, I might add that the antenna was easy to assemble and it's sturdy enough to withstand strong storms.

I purchased this antenna along with a pre amp and 30" mount. I decided not to mount it on my roof and, instead, have it mounted to my garage ceiling. I am about 40 miles from Augusta, Georgia and receive HD broadcasts from ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and PBS. I receive an additional 9 non HD broadcasts. Using the antenna along with HULU Plus, Netflix streaming, and a Roku LT I bought from Amazon, have allowed me to "cut the cable" and save over $90 a month.
I would highly recommend this antenna for the ease of install, quality of received broadcast signals, and very low price.

Remarkable antenna, especially for the price! Assembly was very easy. I bolted the two pieces together, and then snap and bolt the wings into place. The HBU33 was ready to mount. The antenna is well-built, and has been remarkably stable.

Distance & terrain: I live 55 miles southwest of Scranton, PA. The terrain is edge2. The antenna is mounted outside, approx. 20' high (single story chimney mount). I'm receiving 10 broadcasts (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS) from the Scranton, PA area as well as two additional channels out of Harrisburg, PA (35 miles away) off of the back side of the antenna. Little or no signal interruption. The exception being the occasional violent thunderstorm. Otherwise, the reception has been rock-solid.

What more could I ask for? Great antenna. Great price. Looks good on the skyline too!

I live in a condo and cannot have a roof antenna. I tried an "amplified indoor" antenna and best I could get was 3 channels. I laid this antenna ($13 less expensive than the first one) in my attic and immediately got 9 primary channels and 15 secondary channels ranging from 14 to 30 miles away. This includes all the major networks and independents within a 40 mile radius of my home. I am now saving over $50 per month off my cable bill. Yes, we lost 4 or 5 cable channels that we bothered to watch (most cable channels are not worth the electricity it takes to watch). However, my wife gets her favorite channel via Roku and we can get other movies/shows via Roku/Netflix/Hulu. Anything else simply is not worth the $600/year we were paying for cable TV.
