NOT SO GOOD

Strengths: INEXPENSIVE

Weakness: CAN'T PICK UP A SIGNAL

The design will fool you. Looks high tech as far as these things go but worthless in picking up a decent signal. I'm 25-30 miles from major broadcasters.

Don't Bother

Strengths: Inexpensive; lots of adjustment options; can improve reception

Weakness: Cheap; adjustments minimal help, needs contant readjustment; minimal improvment to reception

Would not recommend.

Strengths: Can decently pull in distant signals.

Weakness: Plenty. Hard to adjust and constantly needs to be adjusted.

The design of the UHF antenna doesn't allow locking in of signals and probably contributes to multi-path issues. Sor some reason, even if the antenna is adjusted to receive a signal, over time the signal degrades and the antenna has to be re-adjusted to lock in the desire signal.

It is worth noting that I live in the outer suburbs, but I am not sure how much of a difference that makes. Only one station looks OK, 2 are so-so, and the rest are poor. On this antenna, the connector for the power supply went bad after about 4 months. Pushing down on the...

Dont buy

Strengths: none

Weakness: anntennas are cheap and snap off easily. Wont pick up anything except dust.

Bought this annenna to replace a cheap $10/antenna that worked fine on 3 out 5 local stations. This anntenna worked OK on only 1. Cant take it back because out of frustration in trying it in just about every conceivable location, the cheap telescoping antenna snapped off.
