Terk claims..the higher you go with this antenna..the better the signal.
The Terk HDtvO antenna is perfect for my situation. It's an amplified directional antenna which works great because virtually all of the local broadcasts come from the same place in the Twin Cities. Use antennaweb.org as a guide for your location.
When I first set it up, I could barely pick-up any HD signals. I thought I just wasted a bunch of money. Getting it right required a little patience and a couple of phone calls to Terk's technical support. Here are some tips:
1.) Use antennaweb.org to determine where you need to point the antenna. The farther away you get from the TV towers, the more important it is to point it just right. If you have a compass, use it. Changing the direction the antenna points a few millimeters one way or the other can make a difference. My TV lets me monitor signal strength so I can see the difference.
2.) The length of cable between the antenna and TV should be as short as possible. I'm running about 70 ft. with the power injector installed, which works great. When I first tried 100 ft. the signal was too degraded, yet when I added a booster it overpowered the signal which made the picture even worse.
3.) Put the antenna as high as you can go and positioned so that it has little to no obstructions (trees, buildings, etc.) in the direction it needs to point. I mounted my antenna in the attic.
4.) The power injector must be placed in line as close to the TV as possible and *prior* to any splitter, if applicable.
5.) If you plan to run the signal to other TVs (either HD or analog), call tech support for advise on where to put the splitter(s), cable run length and whether you'll need a booster
