The antenna rotor feature is almost funny. You push a button and it rotates, unless you can see the antenna, you have no way of knowing which direction. If you let off the button and push again it should reverse direction. This happens most of the time, but not always, sometimes it just continues in the original direction. You really don't have a clue to where it is pointing, and since this antenna is very directional on the higher channels you will be looking out the door often to see where the dam thing is pointed. The rotor motor is like something you would find in a child's toy, with no mechanical breaking. Even if you get it pointed correctly the next good wind will turn it like a weather vain.
All the hardware screws into gray plastic that is very soft, you cannot make anything tight or the screw threads will strip. The connections from the driven elements (one VHF, one UHF) to the amplifier are not much more than thick aluminum foil. There is no FM trap on the amplifier, if you have a strong FM station (or TV station) near your home, the amp will likely overload and wipe out some of your amplified gain.
I am an electronic technician and have installed a few antennas in my time. I was surprised by the good signal reception, but would only consider this for indoor use in an attic. It is probably good for 30 or 40 miles from the transmitter, but only if you have a good location. Lastly RCA makes a good strong small antenna #ANT751 (Amazon sells it) that works very well, with an added amplifier I get all the Philly station about 50 miles away.
1. The rotating motor broke in five minutes after installation!!! So, I simply rotated it to right position by hands and fixed that with couple screws. It is not rotating anymore.
2. Feels fragile, doubt it survive this winter.
3. Reception is OK but I would expect much better effect (it's roof installation after all). Still don't get those channels, which showed 30% signal before on my homemade antenna in attic.
So, I just wasted $26 paid for this crap, as it is not worthwhile to return and pay for shipping. Stay away from this product.
I have 3 DVD recorders so recording simultaneous stations becomes impossible at most times as any weather, including drizzle, rain, snow, or wind will cancel out even the smallest of signal strengths of the stations not in the direction of the antennae. So, I decided to get this really, really, cheap... and I do mean cheap, in the monetary sense ($25 including shipping).
The unit is a small antennae with very bad instructions, but not so complicated that most people can't figure out, very quickly. You'll need to mount it to some kind of a pole or round stick vertically. I used an old camera tripod and mounted it to the center mast... it took 10 seconds. A cable runs from the motorized antennae to a control box next to the TV. The control box is also the amplifier. The control box is plugged into a 120 volt AC wall socket.... a cable from the control box runs to the TV or recorder. The control box has an ON-OFF switch. The unit comes with a remote to operate the control box at a distance, or, you can just operate the control box manually. Real simple installation and doesn't require a power source at the antennae like most amplified antennae do.Read more ›

I wouldn't recommend it, since the rotation mechanism doesn't work well, it gets stuck. Also the antenna seems cheap and not well put together. Read morePublished on October 7, 2013 by Amazon Customer
The most waste of money I have ever spent. Rotator broken on delivery, and antenna doesn't work at all. The little dish thing might make a good coffee filter POS !Published on October 4, 2013 by ricktock
Looked very fragile and delicate but really brought in a lot of channels. Works very good and is worth the money spent!Published on September 5, 2013 by Alan W. Easton
