Answer:
It's "rated" to have a range of "up to" 120 miles. But, in real life, expect less than half that distance. A lot depends on the power of the tv station's transmitter and what's between this antenna and the tv stations you want to view, like tall buildings or hilly terrain.

A lot depends on the power of the tv station's transmitter and what's between this antenna and the tv stations you want to view, like tall buildings or hilly terrain. Also, based on my experience, a lot depends on how strong your tv's receiver is. Flat screen tv's aren't as good picking up an over-the-air signal as the old tube-type tv's. Connecting this antenna to my tube tv via a digital-to-analog converter, I can get 20+ channels with a solid picture. Connecting this antenna to either of our flat screen tv's, we get about half of those channels, and the ones that do come in break up lot. BTW, my antenna (the HD-8000) is on a pole 30' high, the stations it picks up vary from about 25 to 40 miles away, and the land between this antenna and each of those transmission towers is relatively flat. see less It's "rated" to have a range of "up to" 120 miles.

Answer:
Your TV should have a menu button. Go to antenna setup, then scan the area for channels.
I had very bad luck working with Antenna Deals. They sent me the wrong Antenna, so I sent it back.
They say they never received it, so I lost $85 plus the $13 in shipping unit back to them. They never… see more

I had very bad luck working with Antenna Deals. They sent me the wrong Antenna, so I sent it back.
They say they never received it, so I lost $85 plus the $13 in shipping unit back to them. They never
provided an RMA number, only an address to ship the unit to.
Recently sent them an email, I have still not heard back from them.
I would not do any business with Antenna Deals, they are not honest.
I then bought the unit from Amazon. Amazon was great. Problem was, the HD 8000
unit did not work. I was not able to scan anything, so Amazon processed the return of
the unit. I got a partial refund on that one.
I still do not have an antenna. I plan on going to a local retailer to buy one, in
case it does not work, so I can return it.
I would recommend, not to buy an antenna over the internet. Too many
issues may arise. Good luck>

Answer:
Yes, a splitter placed downstream from the amplifier does work. Keep in mind that you want to connect the amplifier as close to the antenna as possible or it really does not work. As a matter of fact if you do not power the amplifier with this unit you will barely get any stations. I get about 3 without the amp and 68 … see more Yes, a splitter placed downstream from the amplifier does work. Keep in mind that you want to connect the amplifier as close to the antenna as possible or it really does not work. As a matter of fact if you do not power the amplifier with this unit you will barely get any stations. I get about 3 without the amp and 68 with it! I am mounted indoors but at the peak of my attic on a 1 story. Therefore if you loose power to the amp you will not be happy. I have to contact the company to see if this result is normal. I hate to be dependent on a tiny amp and power supply. I think the amp does more than the antenna. I tried it with a cheap flat rca ANT 1400 $17 from amazon and it really helped that as well The RCA got about 30 stations without the amp and about 45 with it. I did see a drop in signal when adding a second TV but not terrible. I would advise you to get a really good quality splitter with contacts which wont corrode. A bit more pricey but it should not oxidize like the cheap ones will. Also use the shortest cables which will work for you application. see less Yes, a splitter placed downstream from the amplifier does work.

Answer:
No. This antenna was horrible. I could only get 5 stations with it. I sent it back and bought one from Clear Stream. I received 18 with it. TheLAVA could only pick up stations within 10 miles of my home.

Answer:
When it works, it works great. However this antenna is NOT weather proof. Mine took on water inside the antenna after only four months. (April through August of 2015) The antenna comes with a one year warranty that the company will NOT honor. I live in Michigan where it does rain and snow. I wold NOT recommend this ant… see more When it works, it works great. However this antenna is NOT weather proof. Mine took on water inside the antenna after only four months.

Answer:
Hello, you would have to purchase a pole. They vary in price . 20- 100$. You can also just find a spot in your home and set it up there, without a pole. That's what I did, and it works great. I did not want to deal with the rain and snow on the antenna.
