I've had this antenna connected to to my 55 Samsung big screen since buying both brand new. I have tried everything including standing on my head to provide a clear uninterrupted picture during any type of weather event with no success. Seems to know when to Interupt signal at the perfect time. Time to upgrade & use it as a perfect Skeet target with my Benelli.

A Good Antenna

I live 12 miles from the main TV broadcasting tower in the San Francisco Bay Area with no major obstructions in between, and with the antenna, I get all the local stations. It took me a while to find the best position for it. I initially thought that mounting it vertically on a window that was at a 60 degree angle from the direction of the tower would work. But it was better to place it horizontally on a shelf and have it pointing about 30 degrees off from the direction to the tower. One thing I'd like with the antenna would be more information on placement, orientation, etc. But, once I found an optimal position, it was very good.

Amazing product.

I got this antenna to view local channels on my 4K TV as paying for cable costs an arm and a leg. Make sure you remember to scan channels every month and position the antenna close to a window or where you can get a strong signal.

Big improvement!

I order the Winegard FlatWave Amped HDTV Antenna.I was thinking a can expand my channel viewing than local stations CBS,NBc,WLS,WGN, and a few of local Chicago stations, I Think you have to buy an additional converter to get extra channels in which you have to pay for.The antenna wave is very flimsy, hard to attach without damage Better off buying a less expensive antenna will do the same

Enjoying our new Antenna. It was easy to install and we get quite a few stations. We also have an Amazon Fire stick which should work with this antenna, but I have not been completely successful setting it up. That is why I did not give it 5 stars. Probably something I am doing wrong.

Is there a problem mounting this in a window that gets a lot of morning sun with temps reaching 110F? Does the mounting tape harden and let loose? Is the antenna affected by that heat? Thank you for any response.
Asked by: Paul
The mounting strips may dry out and release over time when subjected to prolonged heat and strong sunlight and wide changes of temperature. The antenna should not be affected by exposure to strong sunlight.

Does this antenna receive both UHF & VHF signals ?one The one channel that I can't get on my present antenna broadcasts on analog.
Asked by: Gary S.
This antenna can receive UHF and VHF signals. However, most TV antennas can. The issue you're experiencing could be due to the tuner being used or perhaps may just be related to signal strength. This is an amplified antenna rated for a 50-mile radius. If your previous antenna was not amplified, getting an amplified antenna can certainly improve performance. I'm not aware of any modern analog TV tuners, they have all gone digital as have the broadcasts, but not all tuners are created equal and some cheaper model televisions may not have very good built-in tuners.
