Although the DB2 was originally designed for outdoor use, it has quickly become one of our most popular indoor antennas due to its small size and extraordinary gain. Weighing just 2.8 pounds and with dimensions of 12 x 19 x 4 inches (H x W x D), it's great for indoor, outdoor, or attic use. The bowtie design provides strong gain across the entire UHF spectrum and it functions incredibly well in areas where a low profile antenna is required. In fact the DB2 was recently named "The highest performing indoor antenna" from HDTV Primer.
High-Gain HDTV Reception
Today, local digital TV (DTV)--including HDTV--is available over the air. Over-the-air signals are not compressed like cable or satellite transmissions, not to mention they're free. The DB2 offers a range of 1-30 miles, with multi-directional reception and high gain (up to 11.4 dBi). After local signals are received by your antenna, the digital signals must be decoded, so your television can display a digital picture.
To watch true HDTV, you'll need:
- Programming originating (produced) and broadcast in HDTV (Not all programming from your local station or cable or satellite channels is broadcast in HD--consult your local programming guide)
- An HDTV tuner (receiver)
- An HDTV monitor (display)
Note: While your new antenna will allow you to receive local over-the-air (OTA) digital TV stations, it will not provide cable or satellite channels.

We first plugged in this antenna in our ground floor bedroom and kept it right behind our right: obstructed view. We did a search and found 17 HDTV channels and another 20 clear regular channels.
When we then placed the antenna on the roof (used an old DirecTV cabling on the roof) we solidly got 20+ channels in HDTV and another 34 regular channels. Some aren"t prefect but most are as good as old 'regular' tv quality.
We will probably upgrade in the near future to the DB4 now that we know this works for us. This thing is no hoax but we do think you have to be within about 30 or max 40 miles to get any type of reception.
drop the useless expensive cable or satellite and take a 15$ per month Netflix membership to beat / defeat all the showtime or HBO stuff and add this antenna for the local news stuff. Saves us at LEAST 60$ a month.
Tomorrow I may fuss with the antenna a little to see what other channels there might be, but for now I'm totally satisfied with the DB2 Multi-direction antenna.
FWIW: I read all the converter box reviews and ended up going to Wal-mart and bought the one in their display for just under $50 less the $40 discount (Magnavox TB110MW9). Works just fine, although I don't like the shape of the remote and will most likely get a replacement (universal).
this antenna is a working UHF antenna w/~11db reception in the 470MHz to 800MHz frequency spectrum, covering 90 percent of UHF HDTV broadcasts in the U.S. (ask the idiot city governments in Las Vegas or Chicago why VHF is preferred - you'll need a different antenna)...
no antenna is 'perfect'... every installation is different... get this antenna as high as you can in line-of-sight with the broadcast stations for best performance... that said, i compared to a small 7" antenna included with my Hauppage PVR-950 and a Phillips amplified rabbit ear... this antenna, which requires no amplification, out-peforms those antennas even indoors, sitting on an end table at three feet above sea level...
good design... get the cheapest version you can find...
UPDATE: Unfortunately I lost the Tucson ABC affiliate after the digital transition because it moved its frequency from UHF to VHF, and since the db2 is UHF only I can no longer receive it with this antenna. Since the antenna works so well on all the other channels, though, I came up with a solution that allowed me to keep the db2. I went to Radio Shack and bought a VHF/UHF combiner and hooked up the db2 and an old VHF/UHF antenna (Philips MANT210) up to it. Now the TV receives signals from both antennas: the rabbit ears handles ABC, and the db2 handles the rest. So if you've found yourself in this predicament (especially if the ratio of VHF channels to UHF channels is low for you), I recommend doing as I have.
