SmartBoost amplifies weak signals to preserve purity while reducing signal noise with precision circuitry. Better amplification = More channels!

Top Customer Reviews
I had tried one or two cheap antennas earlier; not that this one is so expensive, but the others were super cheap and also small, I thought I could just hang it up and it would magically work; but they were not adjustable and I did not get a lot of channels. With this antenna, I get far more channels, plus I can easily move the whole thing, or adjust the antennas to get a channel. I do get most of the channels that the antennapoint website lists as 25-30 miles, but not much further than that. I also cannot get all the channels at one time (need to readjust the antenna AND scan the channels on the box to get some of them....this is probably less of an issue if you have a digital/HD TV). And there are a couple of channels I cannot seem to get no matter what. The picture is crystal clear, as long as the antenna is adjusted properly (nothing like the "rabbit ears" of the past, despite the resemblance)...although I do sometimes get interference on some channels when I use my laptop or cell phones However, I get enough local channels plus the substations to be happy enough, considering what I am saving by not having cable.
