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%
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.
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 would highly recommend this antenna for the ease of install, quality of received broadcast signals, and very low price.
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!
